EXPECT SUCCESS! The Science Of The Over 50 Career Search

Is ageism a thing? It may be a thing, but it does not have to stand in your way on your journey to find your next career.

Companies are trying to keep a secret about their hiring process... The career search game has changed. Your resume won't get in front of human eyes until it has been scanned and vetted by a program using artificial intelligence. And some of the so-called keywords are so dumb, one can question how intelligent this AI really is.

"You get what you expect in life. It's true scientifically and theologically. Bill Humbert now shares irresistibly compelling insights on how to use it to achieve every good thing you want."

- Mark Victor Hansen,
author of Chicken Soup for the Soul

What's more is that most job descriptions rarely reflect the true job. You might try to mirror the description verbiage as closely as possible in your resumes, but if the description does not accurately describe the job, neither will the resume.

How can job seekers overcome these obstacles? Finally, an expert recruiter reveals the science behind finding a new career in today's market with a step-by-step guide.

Read Time Tested Job Search Strategies that work in today’s market:

In the 21st Century, the job search is always on. Jobs no longer last a lifetime, or even much longer than a few years for some. At the first sign of economic trouble, corporations drop workers like a damsel in distress, in hopes of keeping their stockholders happy. The economy improves, hires begin, and the cycle repeats over and over.

"Bill’s advice rings true and was a key element in getting my foot in the door for an interview during my job searches. Speaking from personal experience, I have trusted Bill’s advice in my career moves and would highly recommend others do the same."

- Steve Hannah, CIO,
Berthel Fisher Company President, iPrism
