I would like to respond to Mr. John Cupani's letter about elder people being discriminated against (Dec. 1). But there is worse.
After being laid off from a great job, I went looking for another one. At 58 I did not consider myself used. Ever hopeful I made all the rounds, but ... no job.
Why? I know the look you get after the interview, and you stand to leave, with some difficulty. Grandpa, go home to your easy chair, which I had to do.
Still had and have a lot to give. Seriously, companies, you should consider a hiring panel at the first interview. Not just the first person you get to see should make the immediate decision.
There, I spoke my mind, Phwew.
