I hate age discrimination. I hate all kinds of discrimination.
But it it isn’t going away. One reason is because we all discriminate (even the people who think they don’t, they do).
Another reason is because companies are full of idiots who say bad things, and make bad choices, regardless of what is right, and what the company policy manual says.
So, what do older job seekers do? As I speak across the country I have seen the pain and worry and concern about their age, and being discriminated against. They feel it, whether they are getting discriminated against or not.
What do you do?
