Book Review-Best Job Search Tips For Age 60-Plus: A Practical Work Options Resource For Baby Boomers-Toby Haberkorn and Elizabeth O’Neal

Monday, November 6, 2017

As everyone may or may not know by now I am not a fan of self-help books. When the publicist asked if I would read and review this book--I could not resist. I mean, really I am only SEMI retired--maybe I could get some pointers? Did I ever!! This manual covers virtually everything you could possibly ever want to know about how to land a job--no matter what type. I will hazard a guess that this could help younger people as well. It didn't take me long to read it--but I will have to go back and re read sections that I am most interested in.

There are even sections where you can write notes--if you purchase the actual book--I was sent the e-book. I found myself wanting to write a few notes to myself--but you need the actual book for that--or have a pen and paper at the your side.

Need to know how to construct a resume, sit for an interview etc--there are actually examples at the end of the book, as well as explaining throughout.

OK Baby Boomers-------let's get back to work!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

This book is a must read for people who want to continue working past age 60!

Welcome to Best Job Search Tips For Age 60-Plus: A Practical Work Options Resource for Baby Boomers where readers will learn about effective job search strategies and realistic work possibilities.

Boomers have already changed many of the stereotypes our society holds. Most would say they are very different from their parents, who appeared to be much older at the same age and saw retirement as the only reward for their years of work.

With so many Americans living into their 90s, working past age 60 is increasingly common.

Whether working for income or looking for meaningful work post retirement, job seekers face an employment market that has changed drastically in recent years.

This "forever young" generation now must also confront many workplace challenges including age discrimination.

In an evolving and competitive job market, proactive preparation is more important than ever before.

With over 25 years of experience, employment coaches, Toby Haberkorn and Elizabeth O’Neal understand the unique skill sets Baby Boomers bring to the job market, as well as the challenges of finding employment in a youth-oriented world. Their advice and job search resources are ideal for those who want to stay in the game.

• Learn to implement effective 21st century job search strategies • Make technology and internet work for you • Update your personal and digital profile • Prepare for telephone, video and in-person interviews • Neutralize age-related employment challenges

Thanks for reviewing this, I really must read it. I'm trying to decide e-book vs real book. My birthday is the 13th so just maybe. I'm too practical they always ask me for a list of what I need. I will be working my way back into the job market as I close in on 60. I really need to know enough to keep me competitive with these young whipper snappers lol
