Listen to Ron's Interview with Scott Passeser
“The Art of ‘Stealth’ Job-hunting in Your Mid-Life Years”
As the economy continues to struggle under the weight of the raging coronavirus, host Ron Roel talks with Scott Passeser, a widely recognized innovator in the staffing field, about how to navigate a job market upended by fear and social distancing. Job-hunting these days is tough for people of any age, but especially for those from their mid-40s and older who face unspoken age discrimination and skepticism about their ability to manage new technologies. Scott, a senior vice president at Executive Alliance, a national recruiting firm, will reveal how to use his unique system to get through the “black holes” of online job applications that often lead nowhere for frustrated job-hunters. And he’ll offer the latest advice on effective interviewing online; how to turn resume obstacles into non-issues; and a list of things that job-hunters should always do (and never do!).
