Applying for Jobs and Getting Ghosted? (Hint: It Likely Isn’t Ageism)

Ep: 78

Making career moves is hard at any point in life – but if you’re making a change after 20+ years working, and getting little to no feedback from potential employers who won’t hire you, it’s all too easy to fill in some blanks…

On this episode of The Bridge to Fulfillment, Blake addresses the subject of perceived ageism as you make a necessary career transition and tells the story of Libby, a client who found her ideal role with clarity, an understanding of her own value, and a refusal to settle. Listen in to get a new perspective on the obstacles in your career path, and how to take them on as only you can.

“This is what happens when you understand your secret sauce transferable skills. This is what happens when you have clarity on what you want, and your highest value in the market and you know how to position and move yourself forward. That’s how you get hiring managers interested in you. That’s how doors open. And that’s how you transition into a role that’s not only the right one for you, but where you really maximize your impact and your income.” –Blake Schofield
