Over the Hill But Not the Cliff:
5 Strategies for Job Seekers Age 50+ to Push Past Ageism & Find a Job in the Loyalty-Free Workplace

Finding a new job is almost as challenging as the job itself. Once job seekers hit age 50 and above, that difficulty level shoots through the roof—not because of your age, however, but because of how your age is typically perceived by most hiring managers.

The good news is that overcoming this perception is no different than any other hill or obstacle you may face in your career path. All you need are the right tools that can help you to get up and over the hill, or at least around it.

Over the Hill But Not the Cliff is a straightforward and practical guide that job seekers 50+ can use to not only survive in the modern workplace, but thrive. The second book in The Perpetual Paycheck series, it reveals a host of strategies that can help you redirect the hiring manager’s focus to where it should be: on the wealth of experience and benefits that you, as an older candidate, bring to the table.

Just as a molehill is not a mountain, a hill is not a cliff. Over the Hill But Not the Cliff will help job seekers push past the ageism hill, because the only purpose it serves is to block one’s view of the unprecedented opportunities that lie ahead.
