job search over 50Are you over 50 and in the job search? Plan on being more aggressive than you may have ever had to be before. You are fighting some biases and pushing past some obstacles, but it can be done.

Tom got 4 interviews and 2 job offers even though he was over 50 and hadn't interviewed in 20 years. Because he interviewed so well, the company elevated the position and the pay.  (Goes to show that even if you're not entirely sure about the job, interview for it anyway and bring your A game--you never know what will happen!)

Hi Peggy,

I've been involved in some of your webinar presentations and purchased the 30-60-90 day plan (I thought it to be genius!).  I just turned 50 & was 20 years at previous employer then took a few years off to recoup, educate & focus - several items to work through when seeking a new employer.

After your materials I became more aggressive & focused in job search - found five opportunities of interest, interviewed live after a phone interview for four and was offered two - the position of most interest initially paid less but they elevated the position and increased the pay.  I had another final interview scheduled but declined based upon this new opportunity fitting so well into my life.

Your materials and information are "point-on" and a huge benefit to anyone in the job market especially those over 40!

Thank you for your information & I have shared your contact with about anyone I know looking for a next position.  I am sure this new position is not my last and I look forward to learning, refining skills and going onto the next.... with your material assistance!

Thank You!

Tom K.

(Tom, congratulations on your job, and I love that you thought the 30-60-90-day plan was genius! I agree!)

What I hope you take from this is that it doesn't matter that you're a little older...you can be just as successful as ever, but you're going to have to turn up the heat and be more aggressive.

If you'd like more information about what being more aggressive in your job search really looks like, please attend one of my Free Job Search and Interview Training Webinars that I hold for job seekers every week.

Topics vary weekly--please check our Free Training Webinars Page for what's available now.

Can't wait to see you there!

Best of luck.
