Some job advertisements specify an age limit which can be understood as a


way of discrimination. Do you think age limit should be illegal?
Provide reasons and examples to support your opinion.

WRITE YOUR ESSAY HERE (APPROXIMATELY 300 WORDS)

In my opinion job advertisements has to be focus on the capacity of the worker in order to
cover all requirements to make a god job. As I see it, companies prefer younger workers
because sometimes, but not always, younger minds has lots of god and fresh ideas, but also
experienced minds can contribute on solving problems.
In my opinion, not all the times establish a limit age is a way of discrimination, rather is for
companies convenience to count with people that can improve in more levels of experience
doing antiquity in the new job and focus completely in that. In the other hand, that doesnt
mean older people are not capable to be responsible or doing a great job, sometimes is about

the order in the company.


Although, there should be a law to support all of this and justify the interest of both parts,
companies requirements and workers to be fair.
To sum it, the most important things to consider are qualify and capacity of the worker who
needs to cover the profile. But, is important for everybody to stay to update our knowledge and
improve ourselves to keep a good worker profile of CCV and that is responsibility of each of us
to cultivate himself and demostrate the great capacity we still have with facts and that would
be a god inversion for companies and older workers to be fair in the occupation of the posision
and maintain the competitively.
