Getting older can be a career killer. Join me as we talk with Lisa Johnson Mandell, author of Career Comeback: Package Yourself to Get the Job You Want. Lisa is an entertainment journalist, who experienced the pitfalls of being an older job applicant first-hand and ultimately revamped her image to land her dream job (her reinvention was covered in a 2008 article in the Wall Street Journal). Lisa has written an invaluable guide for midcareer women to help them look younger, fresher, and savvier on paper, online, and in person, to compete in today’s difficult and youth-driven job market called CAREER COMEBACK: Repackage Yourself to Get the Job You Want (Springboard Press, January 7, 2010). In CAREER COMEBACK, Lisa acknowledges that experience matters, but also that looking and acting up-to-date matter just as much. Through ten strategies, she’ll help midcareer women stand out to get the job they want. From “Botoxing” your resume, and using tech-savvy tricks for starting and improving your website or blog, to online networking and updating your wardrobe, Lisa shares the secrets that will get you noticed and on the payroll. Lisa is an award-winning entertainment journalist and film critic. She has appeared on the Today Show, The Early Show, Dr. Phil, Inside Edition, and Rachael Ray among other national television programs and her work has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Cosmopolitan and Forbes. She is the author of How to Snare A Millionaire and the co-author of Become Your Own Matchmaker. For more information about the author, visit her website at www.lisajohnsonmandell.com.
