Ageism Is Real – Search Like a Millennial

You’ve dropped the first ten years off your resume, now you must fight the stereotype of the aging professional:

  • Stay intellectually curious: keep up with tech innovations, social media trends, and new practices in your industry.
  • Commit to a healthy mind and body. Adopt popular activities of successful young professionals like hiking, biking, snowboarding, surfing, blogging, volunteering.
  • Have examples of your mentoring capabilities at the ready.
  • Project energy, nimbleness, and spontaneity in your thinking and actions.
  • You bring a wealth of knowledge, experience, and expertise that younger candidates lack. Choose the companies that will embrace these attributes.

Now go get ‘em kiddo!
