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…

Applications aside, it's so easy to find (or guess) someone's age simply by googling their name. You don't even necessarily need…

'Tips from Todd'- How do I prepare for a face to face interview?

Hello Jobcasers! Ok, let's talk about what we all want- the face to face interview!

I will walk you through how I have 'prepped' candidates for 20 years fo a f2f interview. Please forgive any misspelling etc.. I'm a Recruiter, not a writer. Second, join my group! Ask a Senior Recruiter anything! No question is dumb and I answer all questions. I'm not seeking a job- I am seeking to give back and help! Try me.

So, you are going to your f2f (face…

Terminated, With No Explanation

Hey guys, so here recently I was let go with no explanation.. Not even a call or text, they just deactivated my key.. An this usually happens, due to technical error. So i’ll just have security buzz me in like usual, well that day in particular.. The security gaurd was like sorry, can’t do that. I smelt something fishy right then, but laughed it off and jokingly said.. “Okay, i guess i’m fired” He looked away from me, and didn’t respond. So I…

Wow. That is really interesting. If they never officially terminate you, I would certainly get legal advice. While at will…

Valid driver license needed?!

Why is it that most of the jobs want you to have a valid driver's license but alot of them you won't be driving their company cars??? Is this NOT discrimination? Don't we have enough that eliminates us from certain job positions like education level and back ground checks? Whether or not someone has a valid driver's license isn't important for all jobs. Give me a BREAK....

Discrimination against what? It's a form of official identification and is often used for verifying right to work and completing…

Terminated without warning

Hi folks. I was wondering what can I do about my recent termination. I was a sanitation tech for a major drink distributor in my area. I was contracted to work there. I did my job for 2 and a half years with little to no complaints. None of the people I started with are there any more. They have high turnover rates and most people have quit and a few were fired.

To make a long story short. Our point of contact person was a small Indian guy that…

Defeat Ageism Discrimination!

I’m an unemployed 53 years old struggling to re-enter the workforce after an unexpected layoff from my last job. I’ve been landing a decent amount interviews but I have yet to be convincing enough to seal a deal with a potential employer.

My vast years of related experience speaks for itself on my resume but I still can’t help thinking managers are second guessing my ability to learn new skills and quickly adapt to the demands of the workplace…

How well said. Hopefully the decision maker is smart enough to see your value to the company. Best of luck!

This has been happening numerous of times lately to me. I get an excellent job offer only to lose it after they run a background check. I been working as a server for half a decade and I'm burned out on it but it seems like all that is offered to me is server jobs. I'm college educated in both business and psychology, excellent communicator, manager skills, sales experience, receptionist skills and excel at customer service. Is there anything I…


I did a quick search and found this:

Discriminated by employer

So early last month I was sick with asthma/bronchitis and I was in the hospital for three to four days/nights getting treatments, taking medicine, whatever. I was in the hospital from June 10th- June 13th. So I got cleared by the doctors on June 13th although I did rest for a few days before I tried to see if I can go back to work at the restaurant. Then I went to the restaurant on June 17th to try to go back to work so the employers/management…
