Show them you're hip!

No, no, I’m not asking you to break out the crop top and start using the latest tween lingo. But I AM encouraging you to stay up to date on current trends and technology! :)

It’s no secret that companies who have greater diversity in their employees evolve more rapidly and successfully. However, age discrimination (or ageism) is a real hardship that many of those in the workforce struggle with.

Show them you’re just as knowledgeable as any other worker! Demonstrating that continued learning is a priority of yours makes you more competitive in the market. Think about additional certifications you could earn and areas you can improve on.

Here are some great resources for expanding your skillset + staying up to date with current trends:

TED Talks

Techmeme

MIT OpenCourseWare

Codeacademy

Udemy

Lynda

What are some skills you'd like to improve on?
