Over 50 Job Seeker

The Creative Advantage Specializes in Resumes for the “Over 50 Job Seeker”

Are you 50, 60 or beyond? This age group is known as the “Baby Boomers,” recognized for their solid work ethic, lifelong learning, and are still valuable contributors to the workforce. This is your Encore Career! You may need to work or you may just want to keep working!

A mature woman with gray hair in a white blouse reviews documents at a desk with a laptop and eyeglasses beside her.

Clients tell me, “I’m too young to stop working.” “How can I find a job, I’m almost 60?“My company is in transition, and I just feel something is going to happen to my job.” “I have young adults in college and need to help them pay their tuition.” “I still have a mortgage and I need the benefits!” Let me put you at ease with comfortable conversation and a plan to address next steps.

In this age of impersonal The Creative Advantage is a uniquely personal business which makes all the difference!


  • Your unbeatable, solid work ethic!

It’s safe to say you’ve been working 20+ years. What have potential employers said about you? You have the perfect opportunity at this stage in your career to showcase enthusiastic endorsements on a resume, LinkedIn Profile or Professional Bio that a younger worker may not even have yet!

Do you need help figuring out what your accomplishments are? My proprietary, fun questionnaire will organize your thoughts, with questions like:

  • What have you done that you’ve been complimented on?
  • Have you saved money, increased the bottom-line, implemented a new procedure, or earned awards?
  • Do you have complimentary emails or reference letters that can be used in an endorsements section?

You get the idea! These questions will lead you directly to an effective accomplishments or endorsements section that can be easily added to your Resume, LinkedIn Profile or Professional Biography.

Ask yourself … What would you like to do? Start a new venture? Become a mentor? Teach? Work part-time? The possibilities are endless, and The Creative Advantage will help you sort it all out.
