Older adults who applied … [in person] … received job offers at a rate 68 percent
lower than that for younger candidates who applied in person, according to the study
from University of California, Irvine economics professor David Neumark …. The older
job seekers who … [applied online] were chosen for interviews at rates equal to or
higher than those for the younger applicants. But later, once the recruiters got a
look at the older adults in face-to-face interviews, those candidates were offered
jobs at a rate 40 percent lower than for younger candidates who had similar skills.
