    How To Overcome Ageism in Your Job Search

    In this session you will learn how to overcome age discrimination during the job search process. If you’ve been in the workforce for a while, the chances are good that you’ve seen or experienced ageism in the workplace—as two out of three workers between ages 45 and 74 have, according to AARP. People often think it’s most prevalent for employees 50 or older, but it can start even earlier.

    What we’ll cover during the session:

    • What to say when ask age-related questions
    • How to answer, “How much longer do you hope to work?”
    • Technology tips that every 40+ job searcher should already know
    • Critical ageism tactics to incorporate in your job search
    • What are illegal questions and what to say in the interview
    • How to find the right company that embraces your experience and knowledge

    Asking Works

    If you've felt frustrated, after being excited to interview or discuss new opportunities, it may because you aren't sure if the information you offered hit the right elements for them to know you are perfect for the position. Even as we experience the unconscious biases associated with being over 40, how we shape our own stories of experience can make all the difference between opportunities going to young and trainable versus experienced and wisely agile. In this short presentation, Carole asks you to take a break, take a breath, and take an adventure to find out some gold information you didn't even know you needed to hunt for so that your shared experienced land with more rich information. Having spoken before on how to shape your experience stories, Carole realizes that there needs to also be time to gather information to make these stories more meaningful. Now is a perfect time, with a tested framework, to go after new information for you to share. The bonus is that you can also use this in every area of your life to drive richer conversations, gain better information and insights, and ultimately become more polished at storytelling that engages your audience better than anyone else.
