CXR Recommends: TalentBoard’s take on ageism

Don’t let the title of Kevin Grossman’s recent article fool you: Candidate Journey Not Commensurate With Experience. Grossman, the head of TalentBoard, isn’t just talking about experience – he’s talking about ageism. It’s an article that’s well worth your time.

Breaking down the responses of candidates’ perception of their treatment during the hiring process by age over the last few years, Kevin offers new insights into the reality each worker faces the older he or she gets. Even as candidate experience scores climb higher than they’ve ever been, Kevin notes there’s something creeping into the candidate experience research that’s worth watching.

…there continues to be a growing sentiment of ageism in our candidate experience research — those who comment in the open-ended questions that they believe age was the reason they didn’t get the interview, or the offer, or the job.
