Under 24 and Looking for a Job? 5 Simple Ways to Beat Age Discrimination

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150401-130605_1.jpeg Often when people hear “age discrimination” related to hiring, they imagine older people being discriminated against because they didn't grow up in the computer age and struggle with emailing (not to mention navigating the complex and over-stimulated world of social media). However, young people are often discriminated against even more than older people because these young‘uns don’t have any or very little work experience. We’ve all been there.

b2ap3_thumbnail_image001_20141013-064448_1.png Regardless if you are just starting your career, beginning an internship or still in university, now is the time to ponder what you want to do for the rest of your life in terms of a career.

We recently interviewed a CFO to get her advice on the matter. Here are her top five tips: 1.
