Is ageism affecting your ability to find work?
It's a real thing, and employees in their mid-forties and above are feeling it!  In 2017 AARP conducted a study and found 64% of older workers say they have seen or personally experienced ageism in the workplace. I have personally seen ageism in the workplace.  I give the following advice to my clients to help combat ageism:  Remote work is the new wave! 62% of the workforce is working from home. Companies are looking to save money on real estate and technology. By 2024, I believe close to 70% of the workforce will be working from home.  . . Understand your skills! Articulating your value is EVERYTHING in a job search. How will you position your skills, and why will your skills benefit that particular company?  . . Company culture is essential. Research the company and be sure the company makes you feel comfortable. Research the company's diversity and inclusion plan - do you see yourself included?
