Gratitude: The Trait That Defines Perspective

Hey Jobcasers,

Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.

Im not too old, yet.

I'm only 62. Not in the grave yet !!
Have put my application out all over this area. I'm trying to keep close enough to where I live so I don't have to drive too far. Only looking for part time. Always loved all the people I've met where ever I've worked through the years. But....its been a long wait so far.

Age Disclosure on Applications?

Hey Todd Tolford , we just got this alarming information from Chris Bolton about age related questions on applications, see Ageism.

Question… are employers allowed (legally) to ask directly or indirectly about an applicants age on the application?

If yes, what’s the reasoning? Also, would you recommend any strategies to overcome age(ism) recruiting?

Your feedback and professional advice around this very concerning issue is greatly…


I just got asked my age on an application with Geico! WOW!!

Bold move! How was the question framed? Did they ask you to enter your birth date or the flat out “How old are you” question?
