Looking for a Job During a Pandemic? Am I Crazy?


So you’re over 50 and COVID-19 has changed everything, but you still need a job because you still like to eat. This session will answer the following questions:

  • What’s the new “let’s have coffee” in this Zoom environment?
  • How do I maximize the post COVID work world? Believe it, we +50s might be better positioned for success post COVID.
  • Why would anybody want to hire me?
  • Lights, camera, action, Zoom. How do I effectively interview on ZOOM?
