Marc Miller shares some great ideas in this article posted on LinkedIn:

 “Five Things On Your Resume That Make You Sound Old”.

Ageism is a fact of life and these tips will help combat it.

To add to his list, here are a couple more ideas that are not necessarily new, but are worth a reminder:

Begin with a “Summary” paragraph, not “Objective”.

Outline your past “Results”, not necessarily your “Duties”.

Do you have any other tips to share?
