Resume & Profile E-Summit:
Eluding Ageism: Writing Strategies for Clients Age 50+

Get the Recording & 50+ Pages of Samples

Job seekers age 50 and above are one of the largest groups in the workforce ... and they need help to sell their experience without opening the door for age discrimination.

In this E-Summit, Marie Zimenoff and Jan Melnik will provide strategies for resume writers to help clients who are struggling to present their experience without revealing their age, who are tired of hearing they're "overqualified," and are desperate for an employer to see their value to an organization instead of the added cost of hiring an "older" worker.

During this 2-hour, content-packed session, you will learn how to: 

  • Position clients to fit their target roles, even if they are making lateral or downward career moves. 
  • Accentuate experience and accomplishments without revealing age ... while avoiding age deception.
  • Promote clients as consultants and for other non-traditional employment arrangements that can complement experienced client goals.
  • Employ modern design elements to build a updated brand for these clients.
  • Write with language that demonstrates their energy for the position across their entire portfolio of documents -- resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, and beyond.

The handouts include 20+ sample resumes and LinkedIn profiles from a wide variety of roles and levels, including:

  • Candidates who want to move from corporate to non-profit or government settings and vice versa.
  • Candidates who feel marginalized and ready to take a step up in their careers.
  • Candidates who face career challenges: layoff, stagnant career path, backward career trajectory, and return to work.
  • Clients who are targeting non-traditional roles like contract work or portfolio career opportunities.

The handout also includes resources, questionnaires, and tools to build your confidence in differentiating these candidates from the growing competition.
