Weird Job Wednesday - CHOCOLATE TASTER

Chocolate Taster! 


It's not quite like Lucy and Ethel in the Candy Factory, and the jobs are scarce, but what a DREAM JOB! According to most research, jobs usually go to younger women because they generally have a more keen sense of smell. 

Or, be a Chocolate Consultant. Some companies offer great part-time, entrepreneurial opportunities like Lindt Chocolate who advertise their home party Business Starter Kits for just $124. How bad can that be?

Older Workers-New Technology: YES THEY CAN

NEW Survey Debunks OLD Stereotype

For years, a stereotype has been fostered by the media, and now social media, that older people are just not that savvy when it comes to new technology. 

This false perception contributes to age discrimination that affects the older job seeker.

Two companies,  DROPBOX and Ipsos Mori, have surveyed more than 4,000 information workers in the U.S. and Europe about their use of technology in the workplace. 

The survey has revealed that workers aged 55+ are actually less stressed using technology in the workplace than their younger peers. The results also showed that older workers are actually BETTER at using multiple devices than their younger peers - only 13% of respondents aged 55+  reported having trouble working with multiple devices compared to 37% of 18-to-34-year olds.

If you are an older job seeker, don't PERPETUATE the stereotype of the obsolete older worker. Be sure to keep your skills AND resume up-to-date. Create your killer resume HERE.

If you haven't been in the job market lately, it might not be your job skills holding you back but your JOB HUNTING skills. CLICK HERE for a free assessment.

Staying Motivated in this "Bad News World"

(Editor's note) We've recently been deluged with abhorrent news reports in rapid succession. There have been hundreds of innocent lives senselessly lost in the United States and all over the world. Political debates and elections are in progress which could have a profound effect on our future. We feel powerless and don't know where we stand globally. And In the midst of this turmoil, you may be in a career change or a job search. How is it even possible to focus or stay motivated with all of this chaos around you? Life Coach Shawn Doyle shares four tips to help you stay motivated during these tumultuous times:
1. Set a bad news budget — If you want to get and stay motivated, I strongly recommend limiting the time spent reading or watching negative stories. Look I’m not an ostrich, and I’m not burying my head in the sand — I know that there is violence and terrorism in the world. If a horrific story comes up I will find out what happened, but once I get the gist of it, I move on. I do not dwell on the sad horrific details and read all of the eyewitness reports on the horror that happened. The result of doing that is just depressing and it brings you down. So I strongly recommend that you create a bad news budget and spend a very short amount of time each day on reviewing the news then move on to something positive.

"10 Microaggressions Older People Will Recognize Immediately" From the Huffington Post

Editor's Note: There are subtle things younger people say and do that demean older people every day. TV ads are glutted with culturally and technically out-of-touch older people. If you're over 40 (yes, it starts young), and looking for a new job or making a career change, these negative stereotypes can create barriers and close off opportunities.This is age discrimination:
Saying an older job applicant wouldn’t be a good “cultural fit.”
What exactly is a good cultural fit anyway? If most of the office is comprised of people who don’t have family obligations to rush home to, does that mean no one can? We’d remind you that there was a time when a black or Latino hire wouldn’t have been a good cultural fit because they weren’t allowed to join the local country club to play golf. But civil rights laws presumably changed all that and an employer today wouldn’t dream of applying this standard to a racial or ethnic group. 
Isn’t having age diversity an equally good thing? People of different ages bring different perspectives to a job. By 2020, 35 percent of the population will be age 50 or older. Who better to suggest products and services to bring to market than those who understand the needs of 35 percent of the population best? Doesn’t that make more sense than worrying if the new hire will participate in Karaoke night with the office crowd?
