Article: 5 Questions To Ask Yourself If Your Job Search Isn’t Working
“You never know for sure exactly why a job search isn’t working. It could be [ableism], ageism, career change, too specialized, some combination of the above, or other reasons altogether. More importantly, the specific concerns of this job seeker revolve around how others perceive them – too old, founder not employee, single-industry – which cedes too much control of their job search results to others.
