How to Defy Ageism in Software Engineering

If you are nearing 40 or over 40, it may not be as easy to find your next role. This session will help you think through various options and plan ahead.

About This Session

Over 40 and struggling to find a programming job? Ageism is real in software engineering.

In this session, Interview Kickstart coaches will discuss strategies and tips to deal with ageism during your job search. Finding the right companies, building the right skillset and approaching it with the right mindset are all crucial to success. Strategy too, is critical e.g. while we want everyone to wear their age with pride, sometimes it can also be better to hide it.

In this session, you will also hear experiences of some senior engineers who found stellar roles by taking the ageism bull by its horns. And sometimes avoiding the bullfight altogether.
