Ageist attitudes waste architectural talent

  • Comment
LETTERS

It's ageist,ageist,ageist isn't it?

Very interesting to see the workload and how much ofit there is.

So what about this?

My husband is an architect.

Excellent and varied work track record (several awards and nominations etc).Good with young people,old people,cats,dogs etc .

So why is it that since March this year,he has been trying to change jobs,and he is now on his 60th application? He works in London,so there is plenty of choice.He has some computer skills,although he can't draw with CAD yet.

I'll tell you what it is - he is 55 years-old.Now instead ofdoing a survey on where all the work is,I dare you to do one on how old the workforce is.Can some-body tell me what he is supposed to do? Fifty-five year-olds ned to work too.And wil someone tell all these young things out there that 55 is very oung and comes with a hell ofa lot ofexperience.Yes I am angry.
