You're How Old? We'll Be in Touch

You’re How Old? We’ll Be in Touch

     This weekend’s New York Times op-ed about the ageism people
   over 50 face in the workplace includes a charming anecdote via
   JK Scheinberg, the esteemed Apple engineer who got Mac OS
   running on Intel processors. A little restless after retiring
   in 2008, at 54, he figured he’d be a great fit for a position
   at an Apple store Genius Bar, despite being twice as old as
   anyone else at the group interview.  “On the way out, all
   three of the interviewers singled me out and said, ‘We’ll be
   in touch,’ ” he said. “I never heard back.”
