More and more people are making mid-life career changes-and with these changes come new challenges. Maybe it's been years since they've conducted a job search or written a resume. Or maybe they're not sure how to sell their skills and experience in today's job market-even though this hard-won wisdom is exactly what makes them so valuable to employers. In The Age Advantage , Jean Erickson Walker addresses issues unique to the mid-life career change, so readers can market themselves with confidence. Beyond the detailed, practical advice on networking, interviewing or even launching your own business, this is an inspiring book that reminds readers that despite the fear and uncertainty involved in transitions, their experience is proven and their choices are many.
