#5516. Job seekers over 50 are confronted by obstacles. Many employers perceive that older job seekers lack energy, motivation, and adaptability. Younger hiring managers may be reluctant to hire an employee many years older than them, and some firms may even discriminate due to perceived health issues that would cause the companys insurance premiums to increase. In short, older job seekers face hidden discrimination that makes job seeking even more difficult than it already is.
