HH&Y is screwed up on so many levels. Say, you interviewed for that role, there’s a good chance they’ll never contact you to let you know how it went. And they won’t return your follow-up emails or calls. Believe me, I know about HH&Y

CS OP- perhaps. Or maybe it’s because a lot of the HR people are much pretty young, and don’t truly understand the significance of following through with a candidate after they interview (for + or for -). I believe that’s the issue here.

I’m over 40 and there now and at least in my little corner of the world I don’t see evidence of ageism. It’s a big agency and siloed so I can’t speak for all parts.

@Havas2, I agree. Having worked at one of their agencies, and I felt like it was one of the more adult agencies. Another adult is Heartbeat, from what I know. Area is a youth-oriented culture. Most everyone is super young.

It’s a junior-to-mid level position. No one with five or more years should be aiming for that. Maybe a senior copy position. And the pay won’t be what you’re expecting since you have so much experience.

Thanks for calling out this bs ageism! I’d suggest a dedicated #Ageism bowl for this topic as a form of public shaming. It won’t stop until clients threaten to pull their accounts and demand agencies commit to fair and legal hiring practices. In my view the only thing that will get agencies attention is money, and the idea of clients dropping like flies to avoid the stain of association with these agencies is the ticket. It’s the elephant in the room and the room is shrinking by the moment.
