Summary Sunday: Issue #479
Job search for older workers comes with a unique set of challenges. See how to address some of them in this week’s Summary Sunday.
The hot job market is luring older job seekers back. Plus inflation. Plus the availability of remote work (or safer work environments).
It’s no surprise that “‘Unretirements’ continue to rise. As of April 2022, 3.3% of workers who were retired a year earlier are now employed.” According to Indeed.
If you are over 50, this week’s Summary Sunday has information you can use to get back to work:
- Executive job search tips
- Visibility and personal branding for older workers
- Rise of remote work
- Preference for remote work
