As an older worker do you think it is wise to spend most of your time using social media to find a new job? Or should you just dust off that Rolodex and perhaps apply on the hundreds of job boards?
Can you teach an old dog a new trick?

"My thought is that "older" workers have a bit of an advantage because they likely have a larger network of professionals through more years in the workforce (colleagues- both current & past, friends, family, clients, business partners, etc.) to connect with online as well as in person. I think that older workers would be successful by leveraging their "Rolodex" contacts to then create stronger online relationships and a bigger "following" if you will. It makes sense for them to utilize traditional networks as well as social media technologies"
