I'm too old to get a different job

Episode #603 March 16, 20, 2018

Do you feel like you’re too old to make new things happen? Here are some tips and resources to make your stability and maturity a plus in your job search.

Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable.  This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die.  Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.


1. I am in a job that is being phased out, and I am too old to get a different job. I have a lot of debt with no retirement and my marriage is falling apart. 

2.  How do I get companies to stop looking at my past work experience?  

3.  How would you go about approaching an intro/cover letter and pitch to a company in an industry that demands results and in which you have no experience? 

4.  How can I apply for a job in another city without moving there first?
