The job search, when you are 40 or over can be particularly daunting, shares Huget in this article. Some concerns are practical - Should I list all 20 years of experience on my e-résumé? and some are psychological - Who'd want me when they could hire someone younger?

The article continues with tips from Gail Geary, owner of AtlantaCareerTransition and Steven Greenberg who launched Jobs4point0.com last year.
