Hire mostly new college grads with MBA credentials. Spend a huge amount of money recruiting at the best colleges. I worked there almost 20 years and during a reorganization I was forced into retirement (I was 67). I was not ready to retire. I wanted to work two more years to increase my monthly social security check. Of course, I have not been able to get another job since many companies are now requesting a college degree to become an administrative assistant. I have 50 years experience and that seems to count as nothing. They also over a period of time took away many of the benefits that older people value, like decreased retiree medical benefits, canceled the pension plan, etc.
I applied for work there twice. The second time, my experience was the same as what they were asking. I saw 4 women who were working there. None of them were over 40, except the manager. I received an email after my interview that they interviewed "a lot of women with more skills than mine." I've had 40 years of working skills in an office. Up until now, I have never had a problem finding employment.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
