Perception that age is a barrier to employment
Whilst we all agree that it can be very difficult to find employment when considered a mature aged job seeker and over time we have a tendency to give up blaming our age as the main reason for finding substantial employment, truth is this is NOT SO?
More and more employers are looking for experienced, reliable operators to fulfil their requirements as the quicker employees become productive the quicker their full business potential can be realised. Below are a few examples of mature age job seekers who have recently gained employment by believing they still had something to offer re employment.

- Craig – Driver
- Ronald – Process Worker
- Peter – Process Worker
- Rex – Farm Hand
- Lisa – Retail
Commitment, persistence and a never say die attitude were the major contributing factors in the above securing employment.
