View Robin Ryan's posts on the Penguin Blog

A vital new job search approach customized for people over forty- from the author of 60 Seconds and You're Hired!

With unemployment hitting all time highs, the over- forty crowd is struggling to land new jobs. America's top career counselor offers her market-tested program that shows readers how to effectively stand out and appeal to employers amid age discrimi­nation and floods of competition.

In Over 40 and You're Hired!, Robin Ryan will inspire readers to jump-start their careers and secure new, better-paying jobs. She encourages them to tap into the "hidden job market" (where 80 percent of all jobs are found), explains how to create targeted resumes and master the interview, and outlines how to overcome any age-related stereotypes they may encounter in their job hunt. Ryan has created a guide of valuable advice and detailed explanations culled from over twenty years of experience as a career counselor that people over forty will find indispensible as they look for work.

Review:

"Ryan (60 Seconds & You're Hired!) offers authoritative advice for the over-40 job hunter, and in the process supplies tips that would be useful for anyone (or everyone, these days) looking for work. Addressing those entering the job market after a hiatus — those recently laid off from a long-term position or who have been staying home with children — she cautions, 'Times have changed, and you must, too.' With suggestions gleaned from a survey of 600 hiring managers across the country, Ryan emphasizes the computer and Internet proficiencies universally demanded, shares tools for job searching online, advises job candidates to get a makeover to look more professional, and — in the book's most useful sections — shows how to fine-tune a rsum (she advises that each rsum and cover letter be tailored to the particular job and that the job title be explicitly listed in a 'career objective' line). Her suggestions are candid, sensible, and refreshingly specific. With actual examples of rsums and cover letters, a rsum quiz and a companion Web site with salary tools and other online resources, this book is essential reading for job seekers."
