As in the hiring manager says this? I’d say my first step would be to contact an attorney and get a giant settlement.

Say, “Yes, I’ve been in this business a long time” to reiterate your experience. As a 23 yr old female in this business I kind of can’t wait til I’m older so I can be taken more seriously

It's a fair question, and it will happen at some point assuming you continue to practice. If they are looking for a long term relationship they would want know just how long you can help. Being part of a team, you being a senior team member, should help alleviate that concern. It is a sensitive question, and the phraseology is insensitive, so assess if you want to engage that attitude, but I am certainly happy to be old. That's out of my control. My age lends to my experience.

Scary world we live in when a few people respond in a litigious manner. Move on. Not everything is about making a quick buck.

Mid career consultant in Germany here. In a fit of transforming myself (looking for a new agency, hitting gym hard, etc), I shaved my head. Looks great. Think it will land well w/agencies & clients?
