Here are Fish4jobs’ top interview tips:
Use your experience to your advantage
Emphasise that your experience means you will hit the ground running.
Focus on recent achievements
When asked to “describe a time when…”, make sure that time is recent, rather than an example from years ago.
Emphasize your ability to learn new skills
Prepare examples of how you’ve picked up new skills quickly, be it in a work environment or outside of it, and your ability to adapt to new situations and technologies.
Ability to be managed
Make it clear you’re happy to accept authority from all ages – don’t let young managers feel intimidated by your age.
Avoid mentioning things that will reveal your age
Don’t mention your grandchildren or anything else that might reveal your age.
