An Investigation into the Hiring Perceptions of Older Workers

03 February 2019

I am conducting a resume-based screening study on employability for my Ph. D research. If you decide to take part in the study, you will be asked to rate the employability of job applicants followed by a standardized questionnaire. The outcome of the research is to gain an understanding about the managers' rating of potential applicants.


  • This study is anonymous, and it is not the intention of the researcher to collect your name. However, you do have the option to provide your name voluntarily. Please know that if you do, it may be linked to your responses in this study. Any consequences are outside the responsibility of the researcher, faculty supervisor, or Northcentral University. If you do wish to provide your name, a space will be provided. Again, including your name is voluntary, and you can continue in the study if you do not provide your name.
  • Requirements:
  • Adults between 18 and 65 years of age
  • U.S. Citizen.
