Sneak peek

Take a Huge Leap Over Age Discrimination

It's unfortunate, but it's true: The threat of age discrimination is already looming ahead for workers in their late thirties. Many research authorities now define an "older worker" as as someone who is 45 years or older, which may have something to do with the fact that millennials surpassed Generation X as the biggest workforce generation this year.

Older workers are perceived as being far less flexible than younger workers, and many employers believe they don't have much technological competence, according to reports. Older workers are also seen as more expensive in terms of salary and health care costs. Job seekers in their forties, fifties, and beyond often have to fight against these unfair and baseless negative stereotypes in order to land jobs.
