Hi all, my name is Allana Akhtar and I'm a reporter at Business Insider.

I just published a report on how ageism, not a skills gap, is the biggest barrier to keeping older adults from high-paying work. (& I even got some help from Jobcase CEO Fred Goff).

YOUR LIFE IS ABOUT TO CHANGE!(Keep looking inside...) [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...(Everyone deserves a rose.)

People go the hospital everyday for 1,001 reasons, right? And for matters of a more serious nature, they may call a team of doctors for a deeper examination, right?

Think about this for a moment, have you ever observed how doctors really work? As in the illustration below, doctors know in order for results to be seen on the outside, the work must be done on the inside first.

The best way to battle age discrimination: stay relevant!

Over 40? Over 50? Do you sense that your job is insecure? Or have you lost your job? You may think age discrimination -- but is it your age?
