If you're over 40 and unemployed, you've no doubt heard these phrases on your job hunt.
"Oh, you'd be bored."

It's maddening, to say the least, especially for those willing to accept lesser roles just to get back to work.
As of June 2009, more than 6 million workers 45 and over were unemployed. With fierce competition, older workers struggle to compete and many believe they are discriminated against because of their age.
