Do employers prefer youth to experience?
I am a reasonably fit, fairly attractive middle aged woman. I held my last job for 14 years until we moved to a new city. I figured I would have no trouble finding another job in my field, but I have not had a single reply to any of my applications. I am wondering what their thoughts are…am I too old? Over-qualified and they assume they will have to pay me too much? It’s a catch 22 because if I want to try something new they say I don’t have experience! Any thoughts on mid life job hunting??
