When you are job searching you need to pay attention to your workplace image inside and out.
What do I mean by that?
Well, you are probably aware that how you dress for an interview has a massive effect on how employable the interviewer considers you.
So dress as someone who is successful in the job for which you are applying. Don't dress too young, even if you are very young, and don't dress like an "old" person even if you are just a few years from retirement.
Dress professionally, job appropriate, smartly and showing some connection to current fashions.
Inside is a more difficult problem.
You may have heard the saying "Your belief is your reality." Henry Ford of Ford Motors is famous as saying "If you believe you can or you can not, you are right"
These are two ways of saying the same thing.
If you believe the interviewer will consider you too young, you will probably show that very quickly in your behavior. Instead have the mind set that you are mature and responsible enough to handle this job, and you will project that at an interview.
At the other end of the scale, if you apply for jobs with the mindset of "no-one will hire me because I'm old" then, once again, you are probably right.
Instead form the belief that you have experience, stability, proven work ethic and your maturity will be benefit to any workplace, whether populated by young or old.
Your actual age is chronological and out of your control.
Your mind set, including how old you see yourself as, is up to you.
See yourself as appropriate for the job you are seeking, and you are.
See yourself as too young, or too old (or too anything else!) and you are.
So get with the program. Inside and out.
And remember, your belief is your reality.
Are you going for a job interview and feeling nervous and unsure of how to answer certain questions, what to wear, and the general "etiquette" of interview...
