A lot of people seem to be unsure of how much information they should put on their resume in fear of being ruled out because of age.

First, no matter what you put or don’t put on your resume if you are called in for a face to face interview, they will have a good idea of how old you are when they see you.

When listing your job experience, you can go back 15 years, but if the experience from 10 to 15 years ago is not relevant to the position you are applying for, you can leave it off.

My thought is if a company is going to rule someone out because of their age, it’s probably not the right company to be working for.
