Overcoming age bias
Age bias is an unfortunate reality for some job
seekers - some employers use age as one way to
quickly screen out candidates.
Your best bet for overcoming this is through
research and a good resume. Research the employer
- if you go into an interview with detailed
research showing you understand the business, the
challenges it faces, and what problems need
solving, interviewers will tend to look past your
age and focus on your ideas. Use a resume service
to create a resume that emphasises your
acheivements (so as to demonstrate the results
you can bring an employer).
