I was in an interview in the Phoenix, Arizona office. I am 45 years old. The interviewer or Human Resources woman made a joke about my resume stating "You are aging yourself on your resume" I had only gone back 15 years. I have a great resume and education. Last job at for 20 years was laid off.

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.
