After working an entire life in the same thing, we might want to breathe a new professional air, refresh our knowledge and start living new and improved work stage. Daring to do it is the first step and the most important one, we can do it if we have the will and the urge to move onto bigger professional projects in this piece of our career.
The biggest problem the job market faces today is people generating age limitations; it’s time that we start to act and turn this situation around, because it’s been affecting us for way too long.

It is a big mistake to use one resume to cover all the job applications: private industry, government contractor, federal and whatever job titles that appeal to them at the moment.
Many candidates apply for jobs for years and don’t get hired because their resumes are not focused toward the type of industry or position that they are seeking.
When we submit in a resume to a company, why do we need to also fill out an application? Don't they have exactly the same information? After all, a resume seems to be just a more detailed application.

It seems that almost everyone is in midst of a career change of some sort. Good people of all ages and experiences are interested in doing something new, something different or aspiring to something at a high level.
Part of the process of moving up or moving on involves a hefty amount of self-marketing, and it’s at this point where we attempt to share who we are and what we bring to the table that we often fall short.
Whether it’s our online profiles or the summary section on our resumes too often, we resort to weasel word and jargon filled sentences that self-describe us as some kind of superficial super-beings with command over everything in the management and leadership universe.
