Tiannia Barnes could have hid behind lack of time, too much risk, or work/ family conflict, instead of launching a fall 2015 collection of her own luxury shoe designs. I interviewed Barnes about her move from IT to fashion and her calculated risks.

Job search is different for the older job seeker, and stereotypes do exist. Here are seven assumptions that I’ve heard firsthand as a recruiter trying to fill positions and presenting older candidates.

I’ve been getting a lot of calls from my recruiter colleagues about openings, especially recruiting openings. When recruiters need to be hired, that means the company is anticipating increased hiring in the near term. If you’ve been thinking about a job search or if you got discouraged before and are waiting to jump back in, get your job search started ASAP. Here are seven things to do to in the first week of a job search. http://www.forbes.com/sites/carolinecenizalevine/2015/04/16/seven-things-to-do-at-the-start-of-your-job-search/
