While conducting this job odyssey it slowly began to dawn on me that EVERYTHING is tailored towards Millennials. The resume format, the job hints, and tips for a great interview and so on. There us nothing helpful out there for people my age (I’m 49). I surmise all the writers expect Baby Boomers and Generation X’ers to be settled in careers by now. There does appear to be some generic articles, but after reading them, its the same crap, different words. Also, a lot of what I am seeing are write-ups encouraging people to become entrepreneurs. While that’s all well and good if you have a safety net or a nest egg to fall back on. Most people in the real world not, plus normal people don’t have the capital to startup a business!
However, I am finding out there are others like me and for whatever reason are entering into another career later in life. We need to find a way to get they word out there, Maybe this blog is a start. I always try to be positive and look for the good in things. I keep thinking, the right opportunity just hasn’t come my way yet!
