This Friday (10/2): Best First Impressions and Avoiding the “Seasoned Pro” Stereotype

Everyone knows age discrimination is illegal – but there’s nothing stopping employers from making quiet judgement. After all, no employer is accountable to explain to a candidate why he or she was not hired. And not only do employers sometimes make these judgements face-to-face, they are increasingly looking more closely for clues to your age before they even do a phone screen.

This Friday, we’ll not only cover some ideas in interviewing to maximize success from discrimination, but we’ll also talk about some items on resumés and cover letters that may reveal your age. The best way to avoid discrimination is to limit an employer’s reasons to discriminate. As always, the high-octane coffee and treats from Central Market will be on hand. Please join us! The group is open to all job seekers.

NEXT MONTH: October has shaped up to be an amazing month for Roundtable: Costco and UPS will be on hand to take resumes. Paul Valenti will be here from Seattle Mayor’s Office (this one will require sign-ups), and I’ll join career coach, William Wurtz to talk about personal reinvention.

Friday, October 2, 1:00-2:30pm
