F.Y.I.

Applicant's Age The Age Discrimination in Employment Act protects employees 40 years of age and above. Job applications cannot ask for the candidate's date of birth. Generally speaking, age is not relevant in most hiring decisions with the exception of young candidates who are under the age of 18.

You'd think so huh? I also don't get some jobs now 'requiring' a college degree for positions that really don't NEED them. If that makes sense. Anyway, age....if they can't ask yet it's still required on every appplication I've ever seen, how does that work? You simply can't leave it blank.
