Taking Age Bias Out of Your Job Search

Age bias in a job search is a real thing says ExecuNet Career Strategist Stacie Haller.

She works with senior executives every week who are looking for help working around bias against senior employees. There are many things people do that will trigger age bias. “What you did 20 years ago, 30 years ago… that’s not going to get you the job today,” says Stacie. There are seemingly inconsequential mistakes people make on their resume and what they say that shows they are not current. Hiring managers are on the look out for these signals.

Stacie works with her ExecuNet members on avoiding these signals and how to position themselves as being someone who can bring, and knows how to articulate, needle-moving value right now. Listen as she discusses this topic with ExecuNet Master Class host Tony Vlahos.
