“Age discrimination is always a problem lurking in the background and there have been several instances where I have done extremely well in the preliminary interviews, only to fail when I met the hiring manager. There are just those who feel uncomfortable about having a subordinate rather older than themselves (I had one prospect tell me that they thought I’d be unhappy working in a company where colleagues commonly address each other as ‘Dude’!).
I was delighted to find that Equal Approach promoted both my skill set and relevant experience on its merits to their client, which resulted in a job offer with which I was delighted.”
