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.
Is this good advice? Should you delete your college graduation date from your resume? Dye your hair? What do you think of the spa in Arlington, Va., that offered free Botox treatments for unemployed people? Can you make age and experience an asset?
Take a short survey about age bias in the job market and let your voice be heard.
