I received an email by mistake with a new hire’s salary offer. I’m really upset about what they’re offering this guy compared to what I’m making. I want to storm into my boss’s office and ask, “What the heck?” But I realize I have to be smart about this. Any advice?

Getting fired from a job is unpleasant enough in its own right. Concerns about future employment prospects are often quick to follow. Fortunately, being let go from a position doesn’t mean that your career is over… but you do need to be smart about your next steps.

When interviewing, one of the most sensitive topics can be pay: you want a lot of it, and your company wants to keep it as low as possible. A new study shows that interviewers ask your level of income fairly often, and refusing to answer may not always work in your favor.

PayScale queried professionals across a variety of job titles and disciplines, and came back with some interesting – and sometimes alarming – results. As industries go, Finance and Insurance interviewers are more likely to ask about your level of income (or rather, your pay at your last job). This is possibly a cultural normal for those industries, which also had the highest rate of “asked and answered” responses from respondents (45 percent), and the lowest rate of refusal to answer (18 percent).

Put yourselves in the shoes of the hiring manager looking at your professional experience. He or she won’t know the details of your story until you meet. That is why it is critical to do everything you can to put your best foot forward. When it comes to your resume, how important is your title relating to getting that first meeting?

If you’re looking for a job or career change in the next three years, there are 10 fields that will be hungry to hire, and older workers could be great fits for many of these openings, according to a new report from AARP and IMPAQ International.

Many employers are “having trouble filling vacancies with qualified, well-trained workers,” the report says. That could translate into opportunities for workers over age 50. People in this group overall have relatively low levels of unemployment, but they are also more likely to face longer periods of unemployment after they lose a job. For employers and older job seekers, finding the right match could really be just a matter of looking in the right place, according to the report.

The other key for older job seekers, the report states, is to look at occupations that make use of the skills they have already developed during their careers. “Among older workers making career changes, those who are able to make use of existing skills in their new job tend to be more successful.”
