How to Get a Job If You’re a Forty-Something Woman

What saved me?

1. I chose self-employment.

2. My skills are diversified.

3. I???m a digital professional.

Today, that???s the kind of worker that it helps to be: flexible, self-propelled, forward-thinking. The old way is over. This is the new way.

You are not who you think you are. You are who you fear you are. You can reinvent yourself today. And tomorrow. And the next day. And the day after that.

It???s not about the shoes you wore to the interview, or your resume, or what your experience means. It???s about magical thinking, and willing things into being, and the random stuff that starts happening when you stop winging left and start winging right.

Works for me.
