Dear Sam: I am 57 years young and really beginning to feel that my age is hindering the success of my job search. I have been out of work for 10 months, and while this seems in line with peers who are also searching for work, I haven’t even had an interview in 5 months. I’m wondering if my résumé is to blame. I haven’t needed a résumé in more than 20 years and I have to say that I haven’t really spent the time I probably should have to update it. Can you give me some sage advice on effective ways to present my experience yet avoid conveyance of my age?
