Career advice for over 50s please?Hello Lionel. Thank you for your response. I wasn't aware of the insurance issues covering the employers' liabilities. It is very disappointing but at least I know now to review my job search situation. I appreciate you taking time to respond, hence, providing me an insight to the general work situation for over 60s. Sorry to hear of your wife's MS. Hopefully with the ongoing medical research & advancement in this area, her situation would improve. All the best to you too. Kind regards.ViewDate:

Career advice for over 50s please?Hello there - Is there an update to the subject above? I am in my 60s and have been looking for work unsuccessfully for a long time. There were interested recruiters but as soon as they discover my age, they just become silent. Dropped like a hot potato. It is difficult to avoid revealing my age as they always request for the passport or ask point blank my date of birth. I have had several such experiences - it is disappointing & demoralising. The current retirement age is 67. The government should do more to protect people in this age group where employability prospects are concerned. I would like to hear from people with similar issues in ageism & find out ways to overcome them.
