ARLINGTON, Va. - Sept. 15, 2020 - PRLog -- Reaching midlife doesn't have to be the death knell of a career.

While it can feel daunting to search for a new job after a lengthy career — especially during a global pandemic — there are options for older professionals who know how to brand themselves.

One expert job coach and author is offering helpful tips to guide people over 50 to land the perfect job.

According to Robert Moment, author of the new book "Get a Job Quickly After 50: 18 Ways to Find a Job You Love That Work," it's easy to feel invisible over age 40, but over 50, it can feel like a person has been erased from the marketplace.

"It doesn't need to be this way," he said. "There are ways to demonstrate your value and experience so you can stand out from the competition."

Moment offers seven tips for how job seekers over 50 can create a winning job search strategy:
  1. Ask for an informational interview with people currently working in the area you want to be in to learn about new trends and expectations in a specific industry.
  2. Try virtual networking via professional groups or associations as a way to connect with other industry professionals.
  3. Optimize your LinkedIn profile by using strategic keywords to help you better position your profile to stand out in searches.
  4. Update your resume so it demonstrates what you can bring to the position you're applying for, rather than providing a neat checklist of job titles and tasks.
  5. Write a stand-out cover letter customized to the job and company you're applying for.
  6. Build your personal brand with cohesive and consistent messaging about who you are and what you bring to the table.
  7. Harness the power of social media to share helpful industry knowledge with your network.
Ultimately, professionals over 50 can do very well, Moment says, when they leverage their transferable skills and experience to stand out from the competition.
