Job Search Over 40: Identify Discriminatory Hiring & Leverage Your Experience
-- with Edgar Ndjatou
Going through a job search is stressful for everyone, but job candidates over 40 may face extra difficult obstacles due to stereotypes associated with older workers.
The goal of this workshop is to help job candidates over 40 identify hiring practices that are not friendly to older workers, how to overcome them, and how to advocate for yourself.
Further, we will spend some time discussing how to leverage your experience as an older worker to be gainfully employed.
