On the 50th anniversary of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the nation’s workforce watchdog, concluded that “age discrimination remains a significant and costly problem for workers, their families and our economy.” In a separate 2018 AARP workplace survey, nearly 2 out of 3 workers ages 45 and older have seen or experienced age discrimination on the job.

 

Given the average age of a veteran is 58 years old, with the largest group of veterans between the ages of 45 and 64 still in their prime working years, you may unfortunately experience prejudice and discrimination when you are applying for jobs or seeking career advancement opportunities. In this virtual webinar, we discuss steps you can take to help reduce potential age bias from employers. Topics include:

  • Why age bias exists.
  • Résumé tips for more mature veteran candidates.
  • How to avoid potential age bias in your interview.
  • And much more!

 

Join MOAA and our special guest speaker, Kenneth L. Johnson, founder and president of East Coast Executives, the world’s premier diversity recruitment firm, as he arms you with tips and strategies to avoid ageism in your post-military career.   


Registrants will receive a link to the webinar recording, which will also be made available online to MOAA Life and Premium members.
