re: The Imaginary Fear of Your Own Age VIEW POST


I'm almost 20 years older than you. As you get older, ageism does become a real problem. You realize this when you pass every phone interview and pre-interview test with flying colors but when you and your gray hair show up for the face-to-face, you are quickly shown the door. I had this happen more than once during my job search a few months ago.

That said, there are plenty of jobs around in the corporate world where age isn't a factor and someone who can serve as a bridge between old and new technologies is valuable. There's a lot of legacy code out there that needs to be supported and modernized.
