I. Explain him that I have been working in many industries in Canada in the last 15 years, I have an accent but I am capable to communicate in perfectly understandable English also if any person speak pretty fast is difficult to understand even for English speakers. Plus I am bilingual which is an skill that should be appreciated.
I was really shocked that she applied that I was too old.
This is not uncommon. Situations like this happen all the time. I believe they are collected your info or hired someone else. They were positive and professional with you but they did not offer you an interview. Good luck on the next one.
Thank you for your comment. I'm sorry you did not have a positive experience. Unfortunately this role has been very delayed due to summer vacations within the employer. It is still very active hence it is advertised at the time of this writing. Please know that we would never meet a candidate to collect info only. We meet candidates to assess their fit and skill set against the requirement of the job. We cannot control who the employer chooses to meet but I can assure you that if we said you were a good fit your resume would have been presented. Please feel to call myself or the recruiter you met with at any time to discuss further. Mark Venters
