Discrimination and Difficulties of Mature Business Graduates
The purpose of this research is to find out the difficulties faced by mature students (aged between 35-55 years) in Dublin, Ireland. Mature students tend to find it difficult to get a job after completing their education as the trend in Dublin is that most companies prefer younger business graduates for the job. However, mature students bring a lot of experience and wisdom with them which the younger graduates lack and businesses in Ireland should give a chance to these mature students as they may significantly increase the performance of any organization with their experience and polished skills. The research aimed to find out the main motives of a mature student to continue education at a mature age and what difficulties might hinder their chances of getting a position in college. Another aim was to find out what these mature students want after completing their education. The results of the research indicated that more than 90% of the mature business graduates were currently employed in Dublin. They want to get third-level education with the aim of developing and progressing in their career. The main intention for these students be it male or female, is to achieve a promotion in their current organization. They believe getting a qualification would increase their chances to secure a managerial or authoritative position in their organization and as a result, they will be able to earn more and improve their financial concern. The results also indicated that most of mature people are unable to get a position in college or don’t join college because they cannot give enough time and commitment to their studies.
