Silicon Valley has an age problem

Are you over 40? Would you like a job in Silicon Valley?

You may want to think again, according to new research by Visier, a cloud-based analytics platform for human resources professionals. The analysis of over 63,000 tech workers and 267,000 workers in other industries suggests it’s hard for people over a certain age to get a job in tech .

“Ageism is an important issue organizations across industries should be aware of and take steps to monitor and improve — not only for reasons of fairness, or to reduce the risk of age discrimination litigation, but also in light of the aging workforce and skills shortages,” the Visier report noted.
