I'm 22yr. and admit I look way younger. When my DH and I wanted to buy a house a couple of years ago, we had a hard time getting a realtor. We have excellent credit and a steady income, even qualified for a loan already, down payment ready and everything..good customers for house buying..but they didn't want to help us in our search. We eventually found an amazing realtor through DH's aquaintances but I felt if we would have sent our parents in first, we would of had better luck.
Even DH was passed over for a job promotion once by an older woman with less work experience and less knowledge over that business field. My DH was the one that trained her when she first got hired on...age might not have been the real issue but it sure does look that way.
Anyone else experience this? Are you too old or too young?? Do people think you're not as good or as importand b/c of your age???
Yes, I've been passed up for many positions that I was qualified for because of my age. It sucks but it happens. People seem to think that ageism only comes into play with older people but it goes both ways.
