I'm 56 with a Masters degree in Organizational Leadership. I was recently passed over for a supervisor position at my current place of employment of over 2 yrs. I had 4 interviews. 1 with HR; 2 with my manager and 1 with the RVP. The RVP decided I didn't have enough experience and wanted some who was relocatable. In other words, someone younger and single. Smells like ageism and dare I say racism. There is no diversity in our local office in the management ranks. All white males. Total of 7 since I've been there. The last one was hired from the outside instead of promoting from within. So disappointed and still there. No luck finding another suitable job. Received too many dear john letters/email/ phone calls which start off "we regret to inform you......blah, blah, blah. Which is a whole other post for another time.
