- "Age Schism"
Maryland Daily Record--Techlink (09/01) Vol. 112, No. 278, P. 6;
Information technology remains a youth-filled industry that has not been able to shed the perception that ageism is rampant. Mike Oliver, former chair of the Maryland State Bar Association Technology Committee, says even the firms that do business with high-tech companies expect visiting IT workers to be younger professionals. Older IT workers add that their managers are likely to be a younger person, which creates some tension because supervisors might view them as a threat. One result of the dot-com fallout is that venture capitalists and angel investors want to see some older employees working at the firms they intend to invest in. In January, Techies.com conducted a study of more than 1,000 technology workers that revealed that 40 percent felt age discrimination is a big problem in the industry. Among the respondents who were at least 45 years of age, more than two-thirds said ageism is a widespread problem. Experts encourage all tech workers to make sure their skills remain up-to-date in order to meet the demands of the industry. And whether or not discrimination continues, they must be persistent, experts add.
