Looking for a job is hard work, especially in this economy where unemployment is over 10% and is expected to stay that way for some time.
Its rough on even the most confident of souls and its really hard on Boomers who on top of the usual steady stream of nos also get to hear such rejections as Sorry, youre just over-qualified, or Youre just not what were looking for. Translation: Youre too old, only were not allowed to say that. Plus, We really dont want to pay you the salary youre looking for when we can get someone half your age for a third of the money.
So whats an out-of-work Boomer to do?
