<shrug>  A friend, who is around 50 yo and out of work for almost a year,  was sharing with me her ideas on how best to help "mature" people with job placements (in startups).  I had to tell her - look, they (20-somethings) just do not want to work with you.  Period, end of story.  Just like your 20-something kids probably do not want to hang out with you. Even if diversity policies will make them hire you, you are not going to be happy there. So it is better to find a company which is not run by 20-somethings.

Kind of curious, what is going to happen 10 years later...

You gave your friend good advice. I hope she finds a good job.
