Age Discrimination Is Mindset Discrimination

Posted by Marc Cenedella

08:00 AM



One of the things I was most surprised by when I got into the jobs business over a decade ago was the prevalence and practice of age discrimination in hiring right here in the USA. 

Oh, sure... we're not like some overseas markets where job ads explicitly demand youth, or a particular gender, or beauty(!), in the applicant, but there it is... 

The blank look on your interviewer's face when you talk about growing up in the 60s or 70s. The skepticism with which your Snap-twit-facebook-whats-gram-app skills are regarded. The cultural references that pass silently like two Teslas in the night... 

Well, at least the younger generation seems to get your reference to "Gunga-galunga" and giggle. 

Most of the time.

I Had A Bad Day

Posted by Marc Cenedella

It all went so wrong, so very, very wrong - right from the start. 


You left your notepad with your hand-written questions at home; your CEO pulled you into a last-second meeting that made you a half-hour late to the interview; and you finished it off by saying "I think my background and experience make me uniquely suited to making a big contribution here at Avis," which was a good point, except you were interviewing at Hertz. 


You had a bad day in the job hunt. A really bad one. You feel embarrassed, and you're starting to wonder if anybody is ever going to be foolish enough to hire you.

Marketers are constantly plagued by an inability to truly understand their customers’ wants and needs. Why? Because exact insight into clients' purchasing habits is hard to come by, even with the abudance of software tools at our disposal.

In order to run a successful marketing campaign, it’s imperative you send your customers the right messages in ways that are easily translatable to them. Nowadays, messaging can be tested for quality at a much higher rate, thanks to marketing automation and the ability to deliver multivariable testing on a much more regular basis.The information we are able to distill from statistical insights tell Marketers who a customer is, what they think about and most importantly, what they want.
