Post-50 Job-Seeker: 10 Reasons Why Companies Want to Hire YOU!

Commented Feb 15, 2013 at 13:29:35 in Fifty

“After 28 years in an industry that thrives on creativity and fresh ideas I was told that I was no longer viable because after the age of 40(I had just turned 54) the brain doesnt work creatively. I had just come off of a 1 year contract that when I started it I was told it was so complex that it would take 6 weeks to learn. By the end of the first 8 hour day I had mastered the job, within the first week the person I was replacing told management he had taught me everything I needed and that I was already doing 99% of the job alone.
Speed up 1 year. I heard that my old position ( the one outlined above) was open again, so I reapplied for it, I went to the interview, this was with a new manager that I didnt know, after talking with him for about 5 minutes he stated I was not qualified for the position, I asjked him hopw I wasnt qualified since I had already done the job alone( it took 4 peple to replace me), he told me I didnt have the skills necessary to fully understand the complexities of the position. Iasked him who wrote the job description, he looked it up, my name was on the document. I asked him who wrote the job proceedure, my name was on it, He then statedthat I was to old to do the position anymore.”
