AARP Offers New Job Search Videos

Out of work and looking to boost your job search efforts?  

AARP has three new videos to help you enhance your interviewing, networking and resume-writing skills.  Each video is three to six minutes long and offers a summary of helpful tips at the end.  

Preparing for Your Best Job Interview

The secret to having a terrific interview lies with you and your ability to sell yourself.  This video shows you how to research an employer, develop talking points that pitch your strengths and accomplishments, anticipate age-related questions and confidently respond to tough interview questions.

Networking to Get a Job

Successful networkers use a combination of in-person and online approaches to build relationships to find a job.  This video explains how to expand your personal network, make new contacts and reactivate old ones.  It also covers how to use major social online networks in your job search.

Updating Your Resume for the Job You Want

In today’s job market, it’s more important than ever to update and sharpen your resume so that is stands out in a crowd.  This video shows you how to choose the right resume for the job, how to focus on accomplishments rather than job duties and how to deal with age, dates and employment gaps.

In addition to these new information-packed videos, there are a variety of free job tips and webinars to help people in their job search efforts.

“In addition to these videos, AARP offers a variety of free online job tips and webinars to help people in their job search efforts,” said AARP New Hampshire State Director Kelly Clark.  “AARP has also produced a Work@50+ CD that can be found at all 13 NH Works Centers across the state.  The free CD is a compilation of career tools to help you, whether you’re out of work, planning your next career, or deciding whether self-employment is right for you.”

If you’d like a Work@50+ CD but don’t have a New Hampshire Department of Employment Security NH Works Center in your community contact Jamie Bulen to receive a copy.
