Any advice regarding age bias? There is a lot of information about diversity and inclusion but not about age discrimination. I'm actually looking for new opportunity and I have the theory that the reason I have been rejected is age. PS I have doctorate degree and over 20 years of experience.
I wish there were some tools out there for hiring managers to know how to avoid being ageist, or even just how to recognize they may be. Age diversity is also a thing that should be valued along with other types of diversity and inclusion. Leaving off any years on the resume or not being asked about it (directly or indirectly) only gets you so far in the process. I wonder if anyone has had success in just bringing up the subject, in the right way, during the interview, or just talking about it more openly in general.
It's real! I am late 50's but went back to get my degree so graduated in 2006. I had amazing phone interviews etc with many companies but when I showed up in person and had a great interview, I never heard from them again! I do look about ten years younger than I am but it was an eye opening experience. I presently work for a group that hires many older workers- we get stuff done! I also had to accept a 30K paycut. I''m starting to test the waters again, hopeful that hiring has changed a bit. I'm bored to tears but it's a job that provides benefits and a 401k.
Yes, age diversity is real...yet there are many companies that do not practice this. Please keep trying to find the job you want. We must spend too many hours to be sucessful at work not to enjoy what we do.
I was wondering if any of you ladies have any suggestions on work from home jobs? I really would like to not go back to my 9-5 job and be away from my little. I would greatly appreciate the suggestions. I would like to not have to pay to start and don't want to be selling scentsy, etc. TIA!
The CEO (also owner) of a small company reached out to me directly for an HR position. He and the CFO interviewed me. The CFO (the position reports to him) told me that he would call me by Tuesday and let me know of their decision. Tuesday evening, he said, "as promised, i'm calling you to let you know i have good news, i pushed for decision in your favour, can you come in tomorrow, i will try to have your offer letter when we meet?". i went the next day and we discussed salary, benefits and start date, no letter as he didn't have time to prepare (since they have no current HR, he would have to do paperwork himself). He explained the org chart, resources, even offered to give me an offshore resource etc. he also told me : "between you and me, i didn't meet ant other candidate as you are most suitable". all seemed good, as i parted, he told me to look out for his email that day for offer letter along with other official documents on which he wanted me to start working. that was wednesday, today is friday and no news from them. should i be worried? how soon should i follow up? I'm currently unemployed and they know that i just started my search.
Good morning! I am 9 weeks pregnant and stressed about telling work. Its primarily male bosses so I know they wont understand and I have the type of job that is revenue based and the work increases every day. I don't know when to tell, I know we do not have materinity leave pay, so I will have to get it through the state. I also know when I tell them they will ask what my plan is. I have no idea what my plan is! I mean I know for what my plan is. Through short term disability through the state I can get 4 weeks before and 6 weeks after but do I want all that before? Please any advice is helpful, I'm very stressed out! Also, I am going away on a preplanned vacation April 1-10. Do I tell before I go or when I get back?
I'm thinking about not coming back to work after my maternity leave -- even if I have to pay some of the pay I receive during leave. Nobody has asked me about whether I'm going to come back (they are just acting as if this will definitely happen when we talk about longer term projects) but I feel hugely guilty....and sometimes I think I should just quit now. Anyone been in this situation? any advice?
