Anyone going into a job interview must prepare very carefully. However, baby boomers have a special concern: how to deal with the issue of age discrimination.
Even if you discount age discrimination (which continues to be rampant), there is a tendency for hiring managers to want the “latest, greatest” in all things, and that may mean a predisposition to hire younger professionals who are thought to be “on the way up.” Once you hit 45, it is important to show that you are not only capable of doing the job, but passionate about doing so.
In my latest article, which appears in U.S. News & World Report, I offer key interview tips for how to make this happen.
