Yes, I think so. I have had to hide my age.

Hiding your age should not be necessary at all, but employers and recruiters definitely have biases and unfortunately we need to protect ourselves against this. I would like us to move forward as a society so that we can be open and proud of our age and experience, but for now I'm being cautious!

no I do not think you should change your age to suit an employer. You are what you are and you have to own it. In the 21st century it is a nonsense to not tell the truth
