Have you considered temping?
Temping is a practical option for many older workers. Temporary staffing agencies help you land part-time jobs as well as offer additional benefits, and they want to hire you.

Keep Your E-Image Clean
Some employers are searching the Internet to see if they can catch a glimpse of you beyond your sterling resume or fabulous interview performance.

Should I Work for a Small Employer or a Big One?
Choosing the size of employer that you apply to for a job makes a difference. Match your preferred work style, personality and life-needs to the type that will fit you best.

Awkward Interview Follow-Ups
If your last interview went amiss, you can correct the situation. A little diplomacy in your follow-up can go a long way to a positive conclusion.

When to Target a Lower Position
Taking a lesser position can help move your career forward if the job fits into a larger long-term plan.
