Question: “I am an Administrative Assistant with more than 15 years’ experience
working for an Assistant VP, an Executive Director, an Engineering
Manager and a Director of Marketing. I was also responsible for their
staff and assisting other departments when needed. Our company has gone
through two buyouts in less than a year and the reorganization leaves
me without a job unless an opening becomes available. I have applied
for two administrative positions over the past nine months. I was not
notified whether or not I was being considered. I’m not getting
responses to résumés sent outside the organization either. My skills
are up-to-date. The rumor is that the new CEO does not want anyone over
a particular age in this company. Unfortunately, I fall in the age
category mentioned. I know this is age discrimination that I cannot
prove, so how do I get noticed and stay marketable?” —Sheilah Trigg
