You’re doing it wrong

That is the summation from this brief Q&A article on job hunting in the Modesto Bee. And worse, it come with a smug, data-less answer.

“Go where your experience and education are needed. Ads give these clues. Researching companies with older workers will open up possibilities. Use more methods requiring you to call employers. Get into the right pond.”

Yeah! Look at the ads, they are filled with hints that you, dear aged, experienced job seeker, are obviously missing. Perhaps this feature was edited for space, and that there were examples of this mysterious “clues” that the questioner was missing. If not, this Q&A was pointless and borderline insulting.
