I originally name this blog “Old Guy Blog Search” when I first created it on April 23, 2011. However, as I learned a lot of new stuff and thought about the future of the blog after I got a job, I knew that I would have to change the focus and name at some point and decided it would be easier to do it now – instead of later.
Other than that the information in this post is still very accurate.
Yes the new name of the blog is “Professional Crossroads” and I think that it is a great name for my professional blogging.
Why the name – Old Guy Job Search?
It is the truth – the name of my blog describes exactly what I am doing.
Yes – I am turning 55 this summer. Many hear or see that number and believe it is old – it isn’t. Personally I just look at it as I have a lot to offer the right organization or employer.
I am looking for employment where I fit the culture and mission (philosophy) of an organization.
No – I am not looking for just another job.
My plans are to use this blog to document my job search efforts, give potential employers information they can use to help them decide that I am a great fit for their organization or company and give others who are older or Veterans ideas for their own job search.
