You’ve heard it before: “But age discrimination is against the law!”
It sure is. But employers still do it. And they can be pretty crafty. Another side to this is: Someone hired with just five years left before retiring, is more likely than a new 20 or 30-something hire to stay with the same employer for that amount of time. This is just one of the many positives for older job searchers.
Please join us this Friday (5/1), as Edmonds Senior Center Director, Farrell Fleming joins Ron Carnell with a discussion on the realities of ageism in the job search, and how we can put aspects of age in our favor. Farrell and Ron will share strategies on detecting employer age profiling, the types of methods often used to reveal age, and how to counter them. This is Ron’s third ageism workshop over the past couple years, and the discussions and stories are always intriguing and informative. Last time we featured this topic, it filled up fast!
So please respond to: firstname.lastname@example.org to save yourself a place at the “Round Table.” As always, great coffee and treats, compliments of Central Market will be on hand.
These roundtable discussions are sponsored by the Plus 50 program but all are welcome! See you Friday – and as always, Good Luck Out There!
