How To Get Hired, Stay Employed And Find Happiness In Your Career

If You're Over 40 You May be Confronting One of the Biggest Challenges of Your Working Life....
How to Get Hired, Stay Employed, and Find 
Happiness in Your Career... Even After 40!
Do any of these apply to you?
  • You're between jobs and money is flowing out fast... 
  • You're stuck in a dead career, unhappy but terrified to try something new at your age in this economy... 
  • You see layoffs all around... even senior employees are losing their jobs... and you're afraid you're next? 

Nina Price has hit it on the mark. After working with hundreds of professionals as a business and wellness coach, she has written a book that can help you find your new career. 

5 Strategies For Staying Employed in Today's Economy offers practical insights and strategies for people over 40 who are "between jobs, underemployed, or hanging on to their jobs by their fingernails". 

The 5 Strategies focus on what's happening to people over 40 in today's workplace; and what they can do to take care of themselves and their careers. It's not just the economy that's making life a challenge for people over 40. 

Ageism in layoffs and hiring decisions is also creating significant problems for people over 40 as they struggle to stay employed. Getting rehired today is in part about defying ageist stereotypes and understanding how to do so. 5 Strategies For Staying Employed in Today's Economy tells the stories of today's baby boomer professionals and focuses on their needs from a holistic view. 

It's not just about their careers. Their bodies are falling apart due to physiological aging and many years of high stress, but at the same time the people who depend on them expect them to function as effectively as they did in earlier years. The expectation is that people over 40 will help their children through college, help their aging parents, and continue to meet their other family and financial responsibilities. Even though their bodies many not have bought into these expectations, and their earning power may be compromised.

 "I wrote 5 Strategies in response to the struggles my clients are having as they deal with high stress lives and careers after 40; and more recently the sobering realities of unemployment," says Price. "I see lots of very talented professionals who are having a difficult time getting rehired after layoffs, suffering in unsatisfying jobs, or living in fear of the next layoff. It's taking a toll on their health and wellbeing. I felt that their stories needed to be told." So she's telling their stories throughout the 5 Strategies. "Readers tell me that what they like best are the stories because they're about what's really happening in today's workplace: the real issues and the crises that everyone's ignoring."

How do you over come the "need experience" obstacle for getting hired in a new career?
I graduated with highest honors from Colorado Technical University with a 3.83 GPA in medical coding and billing. I cannot even get my foot in the door because every business wants experienced people. Even front desk jobs say they want people that have experience with working in a medical office.

Anonymous: This "needs experience" is an obstacle in almost all fields. You got to know someone through networking and you got to learn from volunteer work. Both give you the advantage over other resumes just out of college and no work experience. School is changing, I just wish all of them would change at the same time. If you school doesn't give you opportunites for volunteer work then it is teaching the old way of school degree then work.

I did not want to believe that ageism existed, but I have to tell you that it is real and increases with age. I had to chuckle about "physiological aging" in your 40's however. Just wait for your 50's!
