This book shows you how. Written by noted career expert Bob Weinstein, this savvy, irreverent, myth-busting guide arms you with the strategies - and the confidence - you need to beat out much younger job applicants. You'll learn to: Recognize myths and assumptions that are holding you back; Hone your job search and interview skills; build and maximize a job-fidning support system of friends, former colleagues, and other contacts; Avoid the three networking "no-nos' that are sure to sabotage any job-seeker of any age; Use computer and software to speed the search and generate more leads; Read the employment landscape to find hidden opportunities for job-hunters of 50-plus; Negotiate your salary from a position of strength; And much more!
