Dr. Dorian Mintzer, a Boston-based retirement coach and speaker, was a recent presenter for the 2016 American Society on Aging's Aging in America Conference held March 20-24 in Washington, D.C.  Mintzer's talk, "Managing Job Search Attitudes in Older Job Seekers," was presented with Renee Rosenberg, MA, LMHC.

The focus of the presentation was on maintaining resilience during a job search and how participants can confront their own "ageism."  They introduced a simple but effective approach to job search for those over 50 and humorous strategies for remaining positive when conducting a difficult job search as a mature worker.

Mintzer noted, "Basically, our goal was to offer some tips for a resilient job search after 50, combined with some of the ageism myths which may be internalized. It's important to be aware of our own attitudes about aging and what messages we're sending to others about ourselves. We can become our own worst enemy."

Founded in 1954 as the Western Gerontological Society, the American Society on Aging is an association of diverse individuals bound by a common goal: to support the commitment and enhance the knowledge and skills of those who seek to improve the quality of life of older adults and their families. The membership of ASA is multidisciplinary and inclusive of professionals who are concerned with the physical, emotional, social, economic and spiritual aspects of aging. Over 3,000 attendees from across the nation and abroad attended the 2016 Conference to learn, network and participate in the largest multidisciplinary conference covering issues of aging and quality of life for older adults.
