Cleared Job Seekers and Age Discrimination
“I’m not talking about botox and hair dye.” Patra Frame
For years security cleared job seekers had few worries about finding employment. For many that has now changed, and just holding a security clearance no longer ensures you’re going to find a job easily. Even at the higher clearance levels.
Older workers – a relative term for sure, but in general anyone over 40 – need to stay current on technology critical to their field. And they need to demonstrate they’re up-to-date on new developments in their profession.
The good news is many security-cleared employers value experience and expertise. Seek out those companies. Stay current. Sell your accomplishments and achievements. And network!
