Determining if a Company is Receptive to Older Employees

Need help telling your story? ExecuNet’s Career Strategists can make the difference in all aspects of your job search… and beyond. Get the help you need and the job you deserve.

We tell the executive VIPs who we work with closely on their job search through our Career Services Group, that as they think about their own value, they must think about the values of the organization for which they would like to work. If they are an older, or even a mid-life worker, how do they assess whether or not a prospective company is a good fit for them? And consider how can they possibly determine if the company may be discriminatory toward people in their age demographic?

This was a question ExecuNet’s Head of Learning Tony Vlahos asked two of our senior Career Strategists to talk about in a recent VIP Access Q&A session. Tune in for some guidance on what to look for, what types of companies to seek out, and what type of language is code for “they are not looking for someone your age.”
