The New Discrimination in The Work Place: Age

Posted by Bernie Reifkind on April 13, 2012

As an executive recruiter I have witnessed first hand that age discrimination is a factor even on a resume. Employers look at when an applicant graduated college and then do the math to decipher how old someone is and in many cases, will not interview if someone is perceived to be a “geezer.” Over age 50. You read it right over age 50.

This is nothing short of outrageous. Especially in the healthcare field where the average age of an RN is 52 years old.
