If you are over 50, you will not be hired. No matter how much experience you have to offer.

Always best to tell the truth even if its first your own peace of mind. If a prospective employer practices "ageism" you don't want to work for them anyway because they discriminate in other ways.

We are in life were we choose to be, or we wouldn't he there under most any circumstances. I'm finding many older people believe they KNOW a lot because of their age unwilling to change and work together to get job done. Even the oldest lion on the Serengeti must run faster than the slowest gazelle, to survive !

At what age is too old to go for an internship? Sometimes, it feels discriminating because of age. #ageism #advice
