Is age a liability or an asset?

Our friends at Civic Ventures strongly believe that encore careers put experience to work. But with unemployed older workers typically out of work longer than younger workers and age discrimination claims soaring, some career experts recommend that older job seekers hide their age – and even their experience.

Take a short survey about age bias in the job market and let your voice be heard.
