Age Discrimination In Today’s Job Market

Age discrimination is an ugly truth of today’s job market. But, unlike young workers, who are rejected because they lack experience, older job seekers not only face persistent age-based discrimination, but are hit with a second bias if they have been out of work for too long.

Studies have revealed that older workers that lose their jobs have a much harder time than any other group finding new ones. Job seekers over the age of 45 have several prejudices against them. First of all, employers assume that older workers aren’t as nimble, and, being set in their ways, aren’t as easy to train. Employers also believe that older applicants are necessarily overqualified for the position, and will demand higher salaries or bolt from the position as soon as a better one is found.

A young recruiting officer or assistant at HR will see a long work history on a resume, add up the numbers, and dismiss the candidate on the grounds that they are overqualified and ‘too long in the tooth’. Most resumes never even get to the hiring manager.
