Middle Aged and Elderly Job Seekers Make These Avoidable Mistakes

Highlighting “objective” on your resume

Until ageism is legislatively banned in an enforceable way, don’t do anything to enable it wittingly or otherwise.

Strategically focus on crystallizing the experiences and skill you’ll bring to a job.
