HIRING A SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER?

Don't hire someone without first tuning in for this essential advice.



Finished at 50? I think not!

But if you are over 50, some of you do need to go about your job hunting with a new approach.

Here is a tip for each of your well-lived decades:

1. Sort out your CV/resume.

2. Sort out your LinkedIn profile

3. If you don't have a LinkedIn profile, get one pronto!

4. Be careful what you say.

5. Look the part!

50 is a state of mind. It's not easy if you're over 50, but right now it's damned difficult being 21 too - especially if you're Spanish!

Don't be something you're not, but make an effort. Sit up straight and have some energy and positivity. Age is largely a state of mind. Worry about it when you're 80.

If you're 50+ and I'm getting you riled, don't bother.

I'm 56.

And if you're really stuck, here are a few ideas to revive your job search.....and if you're really, REALLY stuck, here are a few more.
