  Over 50? How To Find Job Satisfaction
by Miriam Salpeter - Nov, 2015
Job satisfaction isn’t a typical state of mind for most U.S. workers, according to the The Conference Board’s 2015 Job Satisfaction survey. They found 48.3 percent of U.S. workers are satisfied with their jobs.

If you’re over 50 and seeking a more satisfying work experience, you’re...
  4 Tips to Being More Hirable Every Executive Should Know
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
The executive job market has changed over the years. That’s a fact. Employers are extremely selective with their executive hires more so today than ever before. The number of qualified candidates searching for new positions still creates a highly competitive market. How can you present yourself to be more hirable and beat out your competition? Tip 1: Stand out with your resume. The old-fashioned resume format is dead. Be...
  Critical Knowledge Holders: Are You One?
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2015
Every now and then, we hear about the large number of employed people who are on the verge of retiring and the risk to their employers of having irreplaceable knowledge walk out the door with them. Yet it seems to me that not enough companies are taking positive steps to meet this challenge before it becomes an epidemic. It does occur to me that I might not know everything that’s going on “out there,” so I could easily be m...
  Are Recruiters and Hiring Managers Really Using Your Age Against You?
by Louise Garver - Nov, 2015
I’ve had many mature executive clients tell me they have experienced some form of age discrimination in their careers. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission stated that record levels of age-discrimination lawsuits have been filed in the last five years. One contributing factor: millennials are moving into junior executive or executive positions and some may not recognize an older worker’s value to an organization. The...
  Are You Properly Leveraging Your Retiring Boomers?
by Alexandra Levit - Nov, 2015
I've observed an interesting phenomenon. Condo sales in the town where my in laws live, West Palm Beach, were picking up. As someone who studies workforce trends, this is the opposite of what I expected to happen. The baby boomer generation, I thought, does not want to retire to Florida and play golf and mahjong all day. They want to stick around and keep contributing. It turns out I had only part of that right. Boomers wan...

  Why Boomers Are More Likely To Succeed as Entrepreneurs
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2015
A study by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation reported that the highest rate of entrepreneurial activity over the last few years is not Gen-Y upstarts, but Baby Boomers in the 55-64 year age group. In fact, Boomers are actually driving a new entrepreneurship boom as they retire from their traditional corporate jobs and seek more meaningful sources of work. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 60 percent of th...
  5 Signs You Might Be A Delusional Executive Job Seeker
by Lisa Rangel - Oct, 2015
Get ready. I'm going to vent. Some of you may even remove me as a LinkedIn connection. I'm ok with that. I'm annoyed at the delusional expectations of some executive job seekers and the infectious negativity they spread by not accepting job-seeking life for what it is. The executive job search is a sales process. It's not an entitlement program. I get it. It's hard. And you think it shouldn't be this ha...
  Network? Oh, No, I Can’t Do That!
by Georgia Adamson - Oct, 2015
How do you react when someone tells you that you need to be networking to have a productive job search? Do you say, “Network? Oh, no, I can’t do that!” or just throw up your hands in horror? With all the technology-fueled job search trends around these days, you might think, “Hey, I don’t need to network. I can just put my resume online and email it to people.” Sorry, but you can’t get out of it that easily. Technology can...
  Older Workers: Discrimination vs. Need for Their Knowledge
by Georgia Adamson - Sep, 2015
Age discrimination in the workplace has long been a big concern–especially if you’re not getting any younger as time goes on, and obviously none of us is! Now, however, there seems to be a growing trend of people working longer and at least some companies being glad it’s happening. Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that, and it’s worth delving into. Older Worker Discrimination Balanced by Need? It’s possible that...
