Career Plan

By developing a career plan for the next 2 - 5 years, you can focus on what you want to do and how to get there. This is the first step.  The resume is the second step.  If you reverse, the outcome will be disjointed. 

Age Discrimination

Stop Looking For A Job And Create Your Own - some older workers can benefit from moving in the opposite direction of people like Williams–by starting their own businesses, consulting, or picking up freelance work.
Just because you’re an older worker doesn’t guarantee that you’ll experience age discrimination, of course. But that likelihood may rise when you find yourself searching for a new job later in your career. If that happens, just remember that you aren’t doomed simply to suffer the consequences. You may have more resources at your disposal than many younger workers–and you yourself.
