    Minou_DemimondeStormRVirginstateofmind JHR  Since 2008 a lot of 40+ workers have had tremendous difficulty adapting to the current job market. One BIG problem: we of the post-WW2 generation were taught that "all you need to do is go to college" and that a BA or BS practically guaranteed getting hired. Not anymore. Nowadays applicants can't use one generic resume for every job app. If your own experience matches the skills listed in the job description, then you have to describe the skills using the same language the employer uses-- otherwise the scanner may exclude your resume. This can mean editing a resume for every application. (Thank God for jump drives!) And applicants have to SELL themselves, another skill that "baby boomers" weren't taught. Learning all this is a huge challenge for many and a lot of people get discouraged fast.

    Minou_Demimonde Virginstateofmind   You're right, Minou, depends in part on the industry. Lots of developer jobs, lots of tech sales jobs, private security is a growth industry right now. It helps to have more than one language. It helps if you have skills that are "transferable" from one type of business to another.
