Ask the Dolans: Tips for unemployed seniors

According to the Labor Department, the June unemployment rate for those 55 and older hit 7%–the highest on record. That’s bad news for seniors who are out of work or being forced to re-enter the work force to make ends meet. The Dolans have some job hunting tips for the 55+ crowd, including good news about some advantages you may have over the younger competition.

Dear Ken and Daria:

Thanks to the investment losses I’ve suffered, I have to come out of retirement and go back to work. Do you have some job hunting tips for seniors?
