The Worst Mistake a Job Seeker Can Make: Check out the article - http://myemail.constantcontact.com/The-Worst-Mistake-Job-Seekers-Make.html?soid=1102619974185&aid=yWSHDjRhZCc - my response: Interesting article. I would say the quickest and most economical way to network would be via LinkedIn. Research has proven that hiring manages and recruiters are using it increasingly to find candidates for their open positions. Its reach is far wider than any networking events. Candidates should post frequent updates to LinkedIn so they are even more visible to their industry and community. It's an excellent tool. Facebook and Twitter are also valuable to use for networking.

How do YOU prepare for an Interview?

Check out the article at: http://www.linkedin.com/groupItem?view=&gid=4518595&type=member&item=265008634&commentID=156354487&report%2Esuccess=8ULbKyXO6NDvmoK7o030UNOYGZKrvdhBhypZ_w8EpQrrQI-BBjkmxwkEOwBjLE28YyDIxcyEO7_TA_giuRN#commentID_156354487

Here's what I answered:

Candidates need to tell a story, painting a picture in the hiring manager's mind of how the candidate would approach a similar problem/situation at the targeted company. Anyone who can do that will be well ahead of the game. 

It's one thing to answer - It's tough to keep good people these days, I know, I've been there. However my 15 years of experience in management and HR have trained me to do whatever it takes to succeed. 

And then for the hiring manager to hear, "Before I came to ABC company, their turnover rate was quite poor. It was costing the various departments thousands of dollars in recruiting, training and getting the new hires up to speed. When I came on board, I had my team focus on retention. By doing (here are where the details would come in), we were able to improve the level of candidates applying for the positions and their dedication to the company. Most stayed with us for five years or longer with many progressing to senior positions." 

That's telling a story companies want to hear.

Job Search After Fifty - http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20130804170446-52594-job-search-after-fifty?goback=%2Egde_4518595_member_263384963 - My comment: Nice article. I would suggest that skills should keep pace with the current job market and the reality of technology. There's a perception that older individuals aren't computer savvy. Prove you are. On your resume, list recent computer courses you've taken (the type would depend upon the job you're seeking). Rather than listing your duties, which may be exactly the same as countless others in the same position, list your results. Quantify them with dollar figures, percentages of improvement, time periods in which this occurred.

No hiring manager, unless that person is seriously deluded, would pass up a candidate who can make their company money or save it money. It's all about the bottom line and not having to take the new hire by the hand and showing that person the way. If you're well prepared and can transition seamlessly into a new company, you'll make inroads.

I'm a hiring manager. Age doesn't mean anything to me. I want candidates who can do the job I'm posting. End of story.
