• You need to market your experience and education positively!


    Top Tips

    • Age. No need to refer to it due to age discrimination legislation.
    • Use only positive language - there is no need to apologise for your age.
    • Use summaries if you have changed jobs repeatedly.
    • Match the employer's requirements point for point.
    • Explain in the covering letter why you have changed career and stress your transferable skills.
    • Remember: no experience is wasted - it is how you sell it to an employer.
