Article Body:
Are you over the age of 50 and looking for a new job? Have you discovered that the
process of job-seeking is much more difficult than you had expected? Is it all too easy
to make excuses: to say, for example, that you are too old to learn new things or too
frustrated to show your best self?

No excuse is acceptable when you are searching for a new job. You are a successful,
special person, and you can succeed in anything you want! Those who say I cant
and those who say I can are both telling the truth. So, which one are you? Are you of
the optimistic bunch who can take a challenge and turn it around? Or are you a
member of the pessimistic group who give up easily at the slightest obstacle or
barrier? The job market has changed dramatically in recent years, and now were in a
survival-of-the-fittest mode.

Only the best shall be successful in achieving their job goals. But what do we mean
by best? It is critical to note that reaching a job goal usually has nothing to do with
skills, experiences or attributes (though these are essential)in fact, the final deciding
factors are personality and attitude.

Start off by sitting yourself down, staring intently into the mirror, and honestly
answering this question: Is my age really an issue? Your answer will determine how
well you approach and perform within todays job market.

Lets take a moment to consider the number one challenge faced by those over 50 in
search of a job. That challenge is packaging in other words, how you go about
inventing, marketing and re-inventing yourself to suit different employers, different
job agents and the many different scenarios you will find yourself in as you pursue
your job goal. At this age, one of the greatest dilemmas you will run up against is
having a wealth of varying skills, experiences and attributes to offer. Where most
people in this target group fall short is in knowing how to package these beneficial
qualities appropriately by targeting them to suit each specific job opportunity they are
presented with. To do this well, you must keep the following three key points in mind
with regard to packaging:

Industry Requirement: Issues to do with industry evolving bringing about current
trends, experience and specialist skills required. Do you know what these are and if
you possess these current requirements at the expected level.
Job Role Requirements: Issues to do with job role tasks that are age sensitive. For
instance role requiring heavy lifting or strenuous activities.

Your Requirements: Issues to do with your own personal values and why you are
looking for a new job. For instance, are you looking for a more financial rewarding
role, greater job satisfaction or perhaps a job that will keep you physically and
mentally active?

How successful you manage these three key points depends largely on how good your
job market skills are. So start off on the right foot by taking this FREE Job Market
Performance Assessment to determine your current level of job market skills and
discover what you could be doing better!
