Interviewing & Job Hunting Questions

Do you have any advice for handling age discrimination?

Add Answer
Have you communicated that to anyone? Have you defined what that experience entails? Have you also considered that you might not want to work for the people who think that age is a detriment? What would you have in common with someone who thinks like that? The best approach would be to carefully rethink your target and emphasize smaller companies who might be more interested in your overall experience. In an economy where the demographics are now showing that older construction employers have better odds going for them than maybe 5-10 years ago, you need to capitalize on those odds by utilizing a wide variety of job search techniques. You must start to think of this process as a numbers game. And, by the way, one of those numbers is 35 hours a week devoted to the search!
