When you’re 50 or 60 years old, the job market is a combat zone, no matter
what your skills or experience. Battle-scarred veterans report that they’re
passed over time and again for jobs which they are eminently qualified for.
Successful applicants, often with fewer skills and almost always with far less
experience, do seem to have one significant thing in common–they are
younger, sometimes painfully younger.

There was a time, not that long ago, when you automatically retired at 60 or
65, presuming you actually lived that long. Today, many seniors are still going
strong at 60, 70, even 80 and don’t intend to retire. Or they’ve tried the beach
hut or snow cottage and found them…BORING. Increasingly, many such
seniors are choosing new careers, ones that fit their particular strengths.

Finding a Job After 50 is a “guerilla guide” that gives you the powerful tools
you need to substitute real satisfaction for the rat race. Getting the job you
want may be a battle, so you have to approach it as such, equipping yourself
with the right weapons to succeed in today’s job market. Your arsenal better
be well stocked before you enter the fray.

You are probably healthier, better educated, and more experienced that any
previous generation at the same age. You may be the best man or woman for
the job. But you’re going to have to prove it. To do so, you must know what
(and who) you’re up against and how to beat it (them)! This book will show you
how.
