We asked our readers what they had to say:
- After graduating, I am finding it hard to get a job in the field I studied in (science). Though this is due to a number of reasons, I do often wonder if my age and gender discourage employers from giving me an interview. I am female and 27. Not particularly old I know, but I wonder if employers see me and think that I am at an age where I might start having children, and so they don't want to hire me. I don't list my age on my resume, but it can be roughly worked out from employment and study history, and some government jobs ask you to give your date of birth.
