You know the old saying about living till you’re aged and still learning. I guess this is about us old dogs learning new tricks.
Today, ageism remains a bane for older workers. When a middle manager gets laid off (not laid), there are frequently few avenues to turn to except back to what they know. That’s why the saying goes about the old dogs right? Perhaps it’s time for us old dogs to shed off the old skin and really learn new tricks. This intern role will probably have been filled by the time you read this, and you probably don’t qualify if you are reading this post anyway.
For older dogs that have experienced the life on the road before, it would be excellent to have a platform to share this. And be able to engage in meaningful employment sharing and advising travel as a second career.
Would there be a way for us to engage with the travel industry to create more of such roles? Perhaps they can lower that age criteria a little to say – 45?
