    In a recent Employment For Seniors newsletter to our clients, our Natalie Zimmerman, Executive Director at EFS stated...


    "It is a time to shift our mindset from stressing about the things we can't do to taking control and focus on the things WE CAN DO. We have a choice and that is a powerful feeling.

    Illumination Bureau Podcast and Tips For Your Job Search

    Illumination Bureau Podcast and Tips For Your Job Search

    Catherine Lang-Cline is our guest. She is co-host of the podcast Illumination Bureau, a podcast produced by Kristen Harris (https://www.portfoliocreative.com/aboutus) .


    Three episodes caught our attention in their catalog. Episode 31 on ageism, and episodes 23 and 28 on workplace culture. We encourage you to take a listen to these episodes. And don't be surprised to hear a lot of what we have been talking about over the past 125+ episodes.


    EPISODE #31: AGEISM (https://www.portfoliocreative.com/podcast)


    Don't be intimidated by younger candidates and don't disqualify candidates because of age. In this podcast, we talk about how to compete when you are over 40 (yikes) and how an older candidate can be the perfect fit for your team.


    EPISODE #23: WORKPLACE CULTURE (https://www.portfoliocreative.com/podcast)


    Let's talk about workplace culture. It can make you love your job or hate it. If it's your company, it reflects what you believe. And sometimes it goes off the rails, so this podcast talks about where you are or what you created might not be what you want.


    EPISODE #28: MENTORSHIP (https://www.portfoliocreative.com/podcast)


    One of the best things you can do is get a mentor or two. But once you have one, how does the relationship work? If you are looking for a mentor or looking to be one, this podcast will provide you with some great tips in order to make the most the time you spend together.
