You might have years or even decades of job experience under your belt, but the nature of the workforce has changed drastically in a short amount of time. Technology has transformed the way we communicate, manage, compute and accomplish tasks, all the way down to even applying for a job. Baby boomers and other older workers looking to change their careers must take note of these changes and adapt in order to land a job interview.
Today, employers can use video conferencing to conduct the first round of interviews. Before setting foot in the office, applicants sit down in front of their computers and meet the recruiter virtually. This helps employers determine whether or not the candidate could be a good fit before wasting either of their time with an in-person interview.
In addition, those looking for a career change should take a closer look at their resumes. Just because it helped them land a job five years ago doesn't mean it'll work in the current employment market. It's important that these professionals include all of their relevant skills and achievements from their work experience to showcase just how strong an employee they can be.
