Tip 1: How to find a job in 50 years
This may seem surprising, but one of the main reasons why people over 50 can not find themselvesthe work - this is the psychological reason. They have already reconciled themselves in advance to the fact that high positions and careers are not for them and unconsciously give it to the employer to understand at the interview. To prevent this from happening to you, do not think about your age when looking for a job. After all, age is not the most determinant factor for a candidate, in addition, being at the age of 50 or even older, you can be either a "five minutes pensioner" or a very active person.
When looking for a job, remember the advantages of your age. You have at least five of them: 1. An experience. What kind of lawyer does a solid company, 25-year-old or 50-year-old, hire? Most likely, the second. 2. Stability. More senior employees rarely changethe work. 3. Lack of personal factors affectingthe work (small children, etc.) 4. The presence of motivation to ensure a decent old age. 5. Balanced character, stress resistance.
Of course, there are still employers who do not see the above pluses or attach less importance to them than they should. So they do not rush to send your resume to the basket, do not specify a birth date in it. This is not at all the detail that should definitely be demonstrated. It is also enough to indicate your work places for the last ten years, without mentioning the very first companies and positions.
The very process of finding work for those who are "for fifty" does not differ from the process of finding work for people of other ages: send out a summary of the companies you are interested in, do not forget about recruitment agencies, ask friends. Is it worth paying special attention to the latter method, since older people tend to have a lot of professional connections, so findthe work thus, faster and easier.
Remember that a good impression on an interview is made by a "man without problems": a smart, supportive form, positive-minded, benevolent. This is very important for older candidates, as some young leaders may worry that an older candidate will find it difficult to work together if he is excessively demanding, strict, and so on.
