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 & 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 & 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.
