So, in order to ensure that you post your resumes more willingly, and so that you can be more visible (i.e. STAND OUT) to the employers who are actively seeking 50 plussers, we are now offering this resume posting for free. When you go to the Gen Plus login screen and sign up, you will find that once you reach the payment screen, we’ve given you a code that will give you a 6-month membership. That is the period of time within which we hope to help you find a job. After 6 months, we’ll revisit your account, look at activity and determine if you need a free extension.
So, why am I doing this? Because you, the 50 plus Jobseekers really, really need our help and, together, we can change the perception of the job market, one employer at a time. So if you have not yet posted your resume, do so now. Plus, there is a fantastic online interview that was created to help you break through the cyber-door. Our employers are counting on you to use it so that it saves them time on their recruiting efforts.
You’ve all heard the expression…You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. Resume posting is now free. I’ve led you to the water. And I KNOW that you are thirsty. So, please…drink!
And if you are an employer, continue to check back over the next few weeks for an onslaught of online resume postings!
Keep a watch for our next Ask Wendy response to the burning question many of you have been asking in many forms — how to combat ageism. Coming this week.
