12 Things to Never Say to Younger and Older Coworkers

To an Older Coworker: “You’re going back to school?”


Contrary to popular belief, college isn’t just for twenty-something-year-olds. With the economy in decline, more and more older people are choosing to go back to school to get a competitive advantage.

Getting certifications, completing continuing education units, and finishing up a bachelor’s or master’s degrees can set a candidate apart amidst a large pool of job applicants. And in this competitive job market, standing out is more important than ever.

So it’s not that crazy that your older coworker is going back to school. In fact, it’s actually a really smart decision to do so on their part. If you want to, you could even compliment them for having the great idea and initiative, and strike up a conversation about what they plan to do when they go back.
