Thank You for Your Support - Here is a Gift for You!
It has been said, “the older you get the wiser you are." It has also been said, “that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks." These adages are nice to repeat, but do any of them really hold true when it comes to older skilled workers who are looking for a new career?
Over the last few years, I have read thousands of comments, questions, and expletives from older workers. Some of you are clearly professing your superior attributes, while others are complaining of their unfair treatment by job recruiters.
Can both be right in their assessments? Perhaps. But one guiding principle at Interns Over 40 has been to help older skilled workers achieve their own career greatness.
In doing so it is necessary to dispel myths while reinforcing the benefits that make older workers a great catch in a sometimes difficult job market.
I want to thank all of our faithful audience of Job Seekers, Career Coaches, and Recruiters who live this experience every day and prepare yourself, or others, for the next career assignment.
I hope this list of “49 Benefits To Hiring An Older Skilled Worker” becomes a valuable part of your toolbox as you continue to pursue your ideal career. Share it, Print it and Keep it nearby as a refresher.
With our working lives expanding into our 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, perhaps this list will, in a small way help you feel confident about the depth and value of your work and life experience. Remember “soon or later everyone will get older or …..”. "Wild in the Streets".
