📗 10,000 FREE courses...


Have you heard of LinkedIn Learning?

They have 10,000+ courses and there are 3 reasons every job seeker should sign up...

>> 1. The first reason is it's FREE for a month. You have nothing to lose.

>> 2. You can take a course for your industry and put it on your resume and cover letter.

This shows hiring managers you're being proactive and staying current.

They'll LOVE this.

>> 3. You can take a course that'll help you find a job faster.

For example, a course on body language or persuasion!

This normally costs $29.99 a month but right now you can get a month completely free.

My full review, with the free trial, is here:

Age discrimination when job searching...

I don't have one quick-fix or magic solution for you.

However, there are some things you can do to be more likely to get hired:

1. Use your network as much as possible to get introduced/recommended to companies directly. You're far more likely to get the interview if you do this.

2. Put a maximum of 15-20 years of experience on your resume, and don't include a graduation date.

3. Stop preparing for your interviews just "enough", and start going in with the goal of being the most prepared person they've ever talked to. Research them like crazy, have examples, have a case study of past work.

You might be discriminated against in some interviews, but you might NOT. So what's your plan to impress them and get the job offer over the 10-15 other people they've spoken to?

If you're job searching and worried about age discrimination, I've put more tips in a new blog post here:

✔️ Any time you can show more preparation and effort in an interview, you're going to boost your chances of the job offer.

And I've got a great way you can do this...

Create a 90-day plan for their job.

You bring it into the interview and show them that you took the time to plan for YOUR success after they hire you.

Most job seekers don't do anything like this!

Does it take some time? Yes.

Is it worth it? You bet.

And you can re-use your template for multiple job interviews, and just change a few details. So it actually takes less time than most people think.

If you want the steps to create a plan, and an example you can copy, I just wrote a blog post here:

❌ You DON'T need to have a stressful job to make a lot of money.

The most stressful, miserable jobs I've held were also the LOWEST paying.

If you're stressed, over-worked, and unhappy... go do something about it.

I promise you there are relaxed jobs in awesome companies that pay a TON.

I've seen it over and over.

And the absolute best time to look for a job is when you already have a job (even a miserable, stressful one :) )

So go get it done! Start this week. In a year you'll be so happy you did it!

😨 A reader just emailed me about her resume:

"Biron, How do I know if my resume is hitting the spot when I get no interviews and no feedback?"

My answer:

Your resume really only has one job: To get you the interview.

If you're not getting interviews, your resume isn't working. It's not hitting the spot.

It really is that simple. That's the only resume feedback you're going to get in most cases, but it's all you need...

If you're sending out your resume week after week and hearing nothing back, I'd recommend taking a look at my list of what to put on a resume, and how to write it:
