Tired of getting turned down for jobs and hearing you are “overqualified” or have “too much experience?” Think ageism is blocking you from landing a job? I speak to numerous job seekers each week that feel being over 40 is affecting their job search results. It is a common perception among experienced job seekers.
It is true that hiring managers can make generalizations about experienced candidates, which have stemmed from their personal experiences or what they have read in the media. Clearly it is not right, but it exists. Either way, it causes a formidable obstacle for experienced candidates to overcome in their job search. To begin to conquer ageism, you really need to look at what is going on in the mind of the hiring managers that are interviewing you. Some common assumptions about candidates over 40 are:
• You will leave when you find a better job than the one they are offering.
• Ultimately you will not be happy with a less important title compared to the titles you held in the past.
• You may not be fully up-to-date on technology and they don’t have time to train you.
• And many more assumptions
