1. Failing to update tech skills
If there’s one thing that seems to separate older workers from their younger competition, it’s their tech skills — or lack thereof.
While a hiring manager may automatically assume a 20-something job candidate knows their way around a computer and the internet, they may assume the opposite of an older applicant. Prove them wrong by getting some tech training before beginning your job search so you can confidently say you’re able to use whatever programs and applications are required by the position.
