    As someone who changed jobs last year in my late 50s, I can vouch for each one of these 8 tips. I especially like the last two: keep up with technology (on a macro scale), so that potential employers know you’re up on, and comfortable with, the various tools; and prepare for each interview, especially by being able to show how you solved problems that would relate to the job in question.
