Is ageism in the job market insurmountable? Here's a definitive answer - NO. Yes, it exists. Not everywhere - far from it - but it is still there and presents obstacles.
AGEISM IN YOUR CAREER TRANSITION - How to Get Past It. This webinar will discuss some of the myths (and some realities) about age while pursuing a career transition, and how to get through them. The one constant in succeeding will be sophisticated relationship-building (otherwise known as networking).
Simply put, networking is not optional. Why? Because you absolutely must build relationships with professionals in your target areas/industries if you hope to gather important information for your career management process - as well as to generate leads on potential job opportunities. Your ability to succeed in the networking process depends on thorough self-assessment/research and careful targeting - as well as a strategic marketing plan - so that you can get the most benefit you can from the people you contact in your baseline target areas. In this session, we will cover theory and practice of effective networking, with an emphasis on the advantages of a top tier b school alumni database (the best reason to get an MBA from a school like Booth).
