How do I get noticed?

I am 57 years old and have been an office manager at this office for 3 years.Prior to that,I was an OM at a same speciality [OBGYN] practice for 22 years. Over the course of the last 2 years ,the practice volume has decreased and now its financially tough. I have offered many suggestions none of which have been considered instead my hours were reduced Now, I am told on Monday, that they are going to lay me off, terminate, etc.... because its financially difficult to pay me and that the office nurse is going to learn my job. She is 25 years younger than me, with no office management experience or skills and she makes $2.00 less an hour than I do. I am also noticing that she has a younger staff member learning an older staff member position. This lady is 68. I think this smells like age discrimination, what do you guys think?

Over QUALIFIED or Over AGE?

I was laid off in 4/2020 due to C-19. I have been applying on almost every employment site with no luck. I have a lot of experience in the commercial and industrial HVAC industry, traveled the world as factory technical representative, and operated mechanical contracting business in a 50/50 partnership. Unfortunately, I cannot run service any longer due to physical restrictions, but my knowledge and work ethic(leadership skills) are my greatest assets. Employers are commenting on how impressive my resume is but they chose another candidate. This is the most common reply from employers. Not sure if my age, pay/benefit requirements, qualifications, or they are really not hiring? 🙏🇺🇸 #jobsearch #career #fulltime#benefits #discrimination #age #pay #benefits #compensation #leadership

Is age discrimination still a problem?

I just saw someone ask this question in the comments section of one of our posts and want to know what YOU think. Have you encountered age discrimination recently? What did it sound/look like when it happened to you?

Age discrimination is also asking what year you graduated high school.

I was recently let go from Walgreens after 30 years as a pharmacist for yelling at the store manager. He was telling me how the pharmacy should be run. Really??? Do you all believe this was the real reason?

Hi Crystal! I am sorry to hear that! I have worked in restaurants myself and there can be quite a bit of drama! What are you interested in doing now?

Former AA

How much bias is there against males working as A.A.s? I have the experience and the skills; but I've been told that my gender: I'm male, could be sabotaging my applications. How true is this?

Reverse Age Discrimination

Society expects 16 year olds to stay in school and concentrate on graduating but not all teens live in financially stable homes. I have literally applied to every single job opening and no one's called me back for an interview. I thought it wasa because I'm underage but I see other high school kids getting jobs at the mall, movies, and grocery stores. What am I doing wrong? I send in every application with resume, cover letter, and three references. My volunteer experience is also on my application so what’s the problem? I always go back and ask for the manager but they always tell me they’re not hiring right now. Why advertise the job then! I can’t help feeling discriminated against now being young and a minority. All I'm trying to do is help out my mom pay bills. What else can I do to find a job?

Hi Aundre this is Junetta Holman I just first want to say that I'm sorry to hear that happened to u.I want u to understand what I'm about to say and don't take it wronge. U have individuals out here that was raise to be judgemental of race,and ect,but u as a individual has to decide how u will react to any negative situation brought your way through life experiences.U r going to run into life experiences as such that's life.As long as u believe n the #1 person and thats the 1 that looks high and low our mighty GOD ,he will give u conformation about any situation n life.Lastly b careful of what u say about companies and racism being used towards u because if other companies c that u speak of such they will probably hesitate to bring u into there company.Not saying racism was the issue I don't know it could have been just b careful it may become a hendirience to u n the future.But don't never stop speaking,and standing up for your rights just b careful on how u will judge or what u think that is best to speak on.Somethings r just best lefted not to speak on .And those r the things that u take to the MASTER (GOD) pray about and let him handle. Remember we think our plans for our life is best but God always have the RIGHT plan for us all!!!!!!!! Take care and something good will come out all of this for u.LOL!!!!!!!

Illegal or not???

I have heard over and over again that it is illegal to demand that a person give their age when applying for a position, and I would like to know once and for all what the truth is on that subject. If it is illegal to ask someone how old they are (birth date, etc.) then why is it a part of every application and hiring process??? I am 39 years old and have already started experiencing what I believe to be discrimination based on age. Please does anyone know the facts on this subject? Searching online did not give me the answers I needed, but I am sure someone here could help. Please and thank you!!!
