Career changes can produce positive results for most people. Those who are considering a career change are usually doing so because they are not finding their current job challenging enough, they are searching for new opportunities or perhaps they have finished up a long awaited degree program. There are career change and job search challenges after 40 that do make a difference for many people who have returned to school or are changing careers now that their children are grown. Here are some of the career change and job search challenges after 40 that might be faced.
Competition is younger

While age discrimination is illegal, that does not mean that it does not happen. Those who are over 40 and interested in career changes are not only competing with a larger pool of candidates, but they are often also competing with a number of candidates who are a lot younger than they are. Recent college graduates are breaking into the job market for the first time and some employers may decide that they are more “employable” than their over 40 counterparts.

Too much experience

One of the many job search challenges that face those who are over 40 is the amount of experience that they have. While some may see this as a positive, companies who are interested in keeping their payroll low are often looking for employees who have less experience because they can be paid less.

Technology changes

With the number of changes that have occurred in technology over the last several years, some of those who are over 40 may not have kept up. This can make competing for a job in today’s market even more challenging since those who are younger tend to be far more technologically savvy than those over 40.

Pay and benefits demands

Changing careers in your 40′s means you may require not just better pay than your younger counterparts, but also better benefits. After all, most of those over 40 have their minds on their financial future (e.g. after retirement) and they tend to be more aware of the necessity for increasing their savings and may be looking for better health insurance and retirement accounts. This can make job searching particularly challenging since companies are interested in their bottom line as well.

Summary

There are a number of thing that you must take into consideration if you are exploring a career change. Understanding career change and job search challenges after 40 can help you prepare better for the search ahead of you. For those who are over 40, a career change does not have to be impossible, you just have to be prepared for the challenges that you will likely face.
