Using Age to Your Advantage (2.0)
March 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
This workshop focuses on the age-related issues that can arise when you’re looking for a job and provides practical suggestions for dealing with them. Through interactive exercises, you will identify the many ways that being your age can actually benefit an employer. You will learn strategies for “getting in the door” for an interview as well as strategies for handling age-related questions you may encounter once you go for the interview.
After completing this workshop you will be able to:
- Understand what’s behind the objections that seem to be about age
- Recognize the specific benefits you bring to an employer precisely because of your age
- Overcome age-related objections that some employers may have
