Job search for the mature worker
What are some of the biggest challenges you face during job search as a mature worker? What can you do to overcome the common perceptions that companies, hiring managers and recruiters have that may hold you back from moving forward and finding your dream job?
In this engaging presentation, Certified Professional Coach and Speaker Bob Weingartner will share his insights on how to bust some of the common myths about mature workers and getting hired. Mature job seekers are the total package when it comes to hiring. So why do employers buy into the notion that their age is a drawback? Come with your questions and leave with answers that give you confidence and help you land that job, in spite of your age!
Note: although this presentation is focused on the mature worker, Bob’s enthusiasm and expertise will be of interest to job workers of all ages. We think this meeting is rated “G” for General Audiences of All Ages.
