Eileen's Lesson
A while back I took an Amtrak train from BWI to New Jersey to visit a relative in the hospital. On the train, I spoke to a woman for a bit.
At some point during the conversation, I mentioned my husband and children. Suddenly, she looked at me in shock and asked me how old I was. I told her that I was about to turn 40. She then told me that she thought I was substantially younger, a college student actually, and that I was older than she was. 

Funny, isn’t it? We make assumptions about people based on their external appearance, and those assumptions many times are not accurate. It can lead us to think we are imparting wisdom to a younger person on a train. In the workplace, it can lead to making poor and in many cases dangerous hiring decisions.

Before you venture into hiring, you may want to give us a call to make sure your hiring practices are in tip-top shape.
