How COVID-19 Impacts Workers Over 50

Were you laid off due to the COVID-19 crisis and are now worried about age discrimination? Or, are you concerned about keeping your job while competing against a younger generation?

If so, you’re not alone. A question I’ve gotten a lot in the past couple of weeks is what can the older generation of workers do to protect their career & job search during a time of crisis.

“The truth is, if you’re over 50, and you’ve decided in your mind that it’s all age discrimination and there’s nothing that you can do, that’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. That’s exactly what’s going to happen. But I know there’s lots of you that don’t want to believe that, and there’s lots of you who don’t want to be angry anymore.”

In this episode, I talk about how the coronavirus pandemic affects workers over 50 years old, and what you can do about it.
