If you are over the age of 50, nd have lost your job for one reason or another, you need to invest in the book, 50 Plus!: Critical Career Decisions for the Rest of Your Life, by Robert L. Dilenschneider. You obviously realize that it is very difficult to find employment for baby boomers at this time. Fortunately, the author has come up with a thorough guide to get a job and continue on with your career.
The book covers everything from looking for job prospects (even if not advertised) to writing your resume to becoming a successful interviewee. It even discusses the way you should dress, which is covered in Chapter 3.
One interesting section of the book mentions ten ways to tell if you are going to be laid off. There are plenty of tips included throughout the book, such as how to handle an interview question relating to a job for which you were laid off for cause.
And if you are sick and tired of working for a big corporation, Dilenschneider describes a couple other options: starting your own business and buying a business. Chapter 9 covers a very important topic, Bridging the Generation Gap.
So if you are stuck in the status of unemployment, this guide will help you out. I highly recommend you get 50 Plus!: Critical Career Decisions for the Rest of Your Life.
