Job Search Guide for Boomers: How to Prove You’re Not Outdated

A few items to note: All writers must sign a non-disclosure agreement. Here’s why: “Writers know things like our plans for future stories and what we pay, so that counts as confidential corporate info that they’re not allowed to disclose. Not that they would, of course, but the lawyers want to know that if one of our writers won’t be telling a friend at a competitor about our content strategy and plans.” I will include that with your contract. All sources that you’re going to quote must sign a source release form, which is located (and can be shared) at https://www.hellosign.com/s/993257d0. This is a release, not an NDA. The sources don’t have to keep anything confidential. In their case, the issue is that they own their name and words and images. Since the content we’re creating appears on a corporate site, the corporation needs to ask the source’s permission to use their name/words/images. You are free to find your own sources, but just keep in mind that we shouldn’t be interviewing anyone who would be considered a direct competitor to Chase, so someone who is with another major bank or a credit card company, per se. For your piece, I’d suggest personal finance/family experts who can speak specifically toward the topic (pretty mainstream, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find). Also, a fellow GLES writer, Nancy LaFever, mentioned that there were a few users within a writers’ group she belongs to on Facebook who could probably provide a personal anecdote for this topic. I’ll send a connecting email between you and she so she can fill you in further. Any questions about those things, let me know. I’m also attaching Chase’s content guidelines… not much rocket science there, but it’s good to eyeball quickly. You can also get a feel for tone and style by checking out https://www.chase.com/news — the usual deal. :) The contract will speak toward the word count, rate, etc.

Boomer job seekers have a lot to offer, as long as they can prove that they’re still relevant.
