How to Age-Proof Your Job Hunt

Make Your Resume Timeless

Leave out date of birth or the year of graduation from high school or college and list only work experience from the past 10 to 20 years.

Emphasize Current Skills

Let your prospective employer know you can operate a personal computer or any other high-tech equipment.

Learn New Skills

If you lack technological know-how or career-specific skills, enroll in courses to get up to speed.

Accentuate Accomplishments

List any noteworthy achievements that distinguish you from others in your field, like how you save a former employer money or increased productivity.

Note Life Experiences

List any volunteer or community work that demonstrates teamwork or leadership skills, especially if you’re returning to the work force after a long absence.

Create a Professional Appearance

Invest in a new outfit for interviews.
