If you are 50 or older and out of work; it's going to take you longer to get hired. "And nationally, AARP research shows that it takes 6 months.” That's why AARP of Oregon is traveling the state to help those boomers hone their skills: “And we're all competing for similar work and there's a point when 5 years of experience is as valuable as 10 years of experience. So that's one thing that people have to know that they need to be ready to compete with people from other generations as well as their own generation.” Joyce Demonnin says we are in a four-generation job market now. That means people who are 50 plus may be interviewed by someone 10 to 20 years younger. She says be prepared to do online job applications; to cater your resume' to specific positions, and to keep your look and approach very current and relevant.
