If you are over the age of 50, most companies ignore your resume all together and don't give you an opportunity to even interview. When hiring an older employee there is more stability but companies would rather hire a millennial when they'll probably leave within 2 years. Older worker have a stronger work ethic and are able to mentor younger employees to develop their skills and abilities. Even working as a contractor where experience is a key factor and pay rate is not normally an issue, younger candidates are chosen over older candidates. The factor that has not been addressed is that the Human Resources Department is the main reason older applicants are consider for many position. Resumes are not read they are systemically scanned for key words and never get to the hiring manager for review.
