Bucking the stereotype: baby boomers will prove HR pros wrong!

Bucking the Stereotype Baby Boomers WILL prove HR pros wrong! According to a recent survey, Baby Boomers need to show HR departments across the country that they're able to learn, are indeed tech-savvy, and will bring an innovative perspective to their organizations.

Tips to help Baby Boomers overcome these stereotypes: → Accept that your team members will range in age and have different philosophies and processes when it comes to work. → Show your flexibility and willingness to learn by asking interviewers interesting questions. → Embrace the corporate culture. If the dress code is casual don't pass judgment on it as being unprofessional. → Don't share why you need a job; tell the interviewer why they will want to work with you. → Don't waste your time proving you have the skills to lead, HR pros already think you do. → Have an online presence to show that you're able and willing to communicate in the digital world.
