How to get hired at 76 with a felony
You need to go into the location you want to apply at and pick up an application. Since you might run into the manager, dress nicely in clean clothes that say “responsible person”.
Make sure you read over the application before beginning to fill it out. This stops you from making a mess of your application. Remember, employers ask certain things for a reason, so make sure not to leave anything blank. If something does not apply to you, simply mark it with N/A (not applicable). Filling in every blank shows you have attention to detail and makes certain you don’t overlook something.
When turning in your application, check that your contact information is current. If they can’t reach you, they can’t interview you!
Another great tip would be to go ahead and provide a copy of your resume when turning in your application. It’s a great way to stand out. Our guide provides great pointers on how to boost your resume so all your skills that relate to the job you’ve selected are emphasized.
It’s a good idea to customize your resume for a particular job. How would you do this?
