Hello Jobcasers,

I have seen a few posts as of late regarding people feeling they are being discriminated against.

I am not here to tell you that you are or are not being discriminated against; I am here to tell you that you need to record (to the best of your ability) your experiences at each stage of the hiring process. I also highly recommend you keep a copy of the job description and the resume/job application used to apply.

Do your best to recreate the events of each interview and everything said, because documentation is imperative to anything. You are unlikely to take an Age Discrimination case far if there is no documentation, but if you can show your that you met (and ideally exceeded) the job qualifications and answered the interview questions well, then you may have a better opportunity at uncovering the truth behind your suspicions of discrimination based on your age.

Once you have documented all of this, speak to an employment attorney and seek their counsel. There is no substitute for the counsel of an attorney.

Let me repeat: THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE COUNSEL OF AN ATTORNEY.

Google will not suffice. I will not suffice. Nobody on here (who is not a possessor of a JD degree) will suffice as substitute for an attorney.

I am saying that you should document all of this so that when you do get the counsel of an attorney, they have a better view of your situation and can better help you move forward.

Thank you for reading and I wish you nothing but the best in your pursuit of your next employment opportunity.

Best Regards,

Gage Cherry

It's not the fact of not presenting yourself well or is it a situation of answering the questions properly. It's the fact that based on your zip code you're not even allowed an interview in the opportunity to that you are qualified for the job. I appreciate your input but it goes a little bit beyond your encouraging words.
