“… I appreciate your articles, tips and Pod-casts so much. It is refreshing to have access to Interns Over 40. You acknowledge the very real disadvantages older workers face when applying for jobs after a lay-off. The prejudices and distorted perceptions of others exist and are challenging to overcome. Interns over 40 provides me with concrete issues that may be holding me back…” ~Karen, San Francisco I do marveling.back and tools to correct those issues I can correct… You are refreshing and give me changes I need to make and different ways of presenting myself, etc. Please keep it up.

“…I enjoy your articles and advice. I printed one or two and gave them to my boss to read showing him why he should employ older people. As he is in his mid-30’s anyone in their mid40’s and older seems ancient to him. I know those articles made him think a little bit more. Thanks for all you do.” ~Tilly

“Just a big thank-you from me. Four years ago, when I first received Interns Over 40, I had just been laid off from a company where I had worked for 12 years. I was struggling with whether to build a consulting business, which I had started, or to go back to work for someone else. I became a regular reader of Interns over 40, and found useful information for both …
the can’t doesprojects, and interviewing for jobs. Interns over 40 was one of several resources that made a difference for me. In August of 2010, one of my consulting clients offered me a full-time position, and I have been there ever since.I still review the e-mails you send out pretty regularly, and I save the links. Sometimes, there’s just some great reminders about how I should live my work life; sometimes I just want to keep track of ideas I could use if I ever go job-hunting again. But yes – you did make a difference in my life. Thanks”!~Joe Lane
