Hiring 50+ Year Olds
Posted in the Human Resources Forum
#1 Jan 9, 2014
How would a 50+ Year Old who has been out of work for over one year and who otherwise has the skills and experience to compete for a job opening best position his or herself to compete with younger applicants who have had much more recent work experience? Al comments, ideas, recommendations, and strategies would be greatly appreciated from any savvy HR people on this forum.

They have many years of previous experience, so it could be worth hiring one and seeing what the outcome is. It's definitely risky, but could pay off, because although younger hires are more tech savvy, an older hire could bring ideas that are tried and true or be good at customer service - depending on your industry. You can always use on boarding techniques along with your hiring solutions to get them up to speed and test their skills. The company I work for does that for all new hires.
