Unfortunately, we live in a youth oriented culture. A culture which glorifies youth and demonize its elders. A culture that is sexist, racist, and ageist. Employers are getting younger everyday. They prefer to surround themselves with persons who mirror their image. Youth is suppose to symbolize cool, technologically savvy and cutting edge.
In actuality they are insecure and feel threatened by the more experienced mature employee. besides, a mature employee is going to demand a decent salary for their experience.
However, it is the mature worker who brings years of experience, knowledge, professionalism, work ethics and class. The mature worker understands the culture of a successful workplace. It is not an extension of ones home nor a place to socialize. Younger inexperienced employees have this misguided idea that the workplace is a place of play and a dating service.
There are employers looking for the mature and experienced employee. Do not give up. Many persons are starting their own businesses. You mentioned you have a business. Trust and have faith in your ability to grow your business. In the future you will be in a position to hire the mature employee.
