Blogging Boomers Carnival #57...and much, much more...

Ann Harrison, over at Contemporary Retirement is this week's Blogging Boomer host. Head on over for some treats this week, including issues that affect more mature jobseekers.

I also wanted to pass along an excellent article by Scot Herrick, over at Cube Rules, who first chronicled his life at a Cubicle Warrior and is now sharing his job search efforts as an older jobseeker. He and his wife were both laid off at the same time and it has been both a shock and an exciting re-awakening for him. This article looks at the "interview gauntlet" -- the hoops one has to jump through to get through in today's interview process, and the particular challenges facing the older jobseeker. A good read.
