How to bypass the age qualification?
each company has preferences in the field of requirements to applicants. For example, there are firms which limit age of the applicant and suggest to visit interviews to people “from... and to...“. Only the top limit is sometimes limited: for example “to 35“. Sometimes - only lower: for example “from 25“. But anyway complexity is available.
What to do?
If you obviously do not fit into an age framework - it does not matter. You can call HR department and ask a question approximately in such form: “I see that in your announcement age restrictions are designated. But it would like to be tried on this vacancy. May I send you the summary if I am more senior (more young)?“ .
Possible version of the answer to your question - categorical “no“ without explanation. Certainly, you can be indignant and pay attention of the personnel officer that his company violates the Russian law which forbids to limit age of the applicant. However if you so declare, then can forever forget about work in this firm: nobody loves that it was learned to live.
But can try to punch a gap in age restrictions. For example:to offer
- in a phone conversation that you were taken to work with a trial period. It is quite probable that in the company and the test period for new workers is so determined. However the fact that you express the first readiness to undergo check by business can soften the personnel officer; >
- it is simple to li to come to interview, hoping that your appearance and a manner of communication will melt heart of the employer or you will manage to take it impudence. At the same time to you can carry, and can and is not present. Be ready that you will be ironically asked whether attentively you read the text of the announcement whether well you understood read. And precisely nobody will return you money for journey and the spent time. But, as they say, who does not risk, that... does not find a job.
Work for which you seek
So you read the announcement in which the age qualification is explicitly stated. Meanwhile to you this work with something is nice, for example:
- it is near your house, you understand, what is the time and money will save if agree to it. this work very well to you is familiar to
- . For example, the accountant with knowledge of process of trade in a stationery - and you on a stationery is required and worked long time. you the operating mode, for example with 7 to 16 arranges
- (perhaps, this mode is not really convenient for other applicants).
in principle, can be the set of the reasons for which to you this work attracted in spite of the fact that you do not pass according to the age qualification.
So, you can just recede and reconcile to the fact that someone will get this place to another. And you can try to fight for it.for this purpose should take an interest in
by phone what the set restrictions are connected with. It is possible to formulate it, for example, so: “I read your announcement. But I see that I not absolutely approach on age. May I take an interest, than your requirements are caused? Perhaps we will come to a conclusion that this work everything is is suitable for me?“ . >
it is favorable to p to Talk to such intonation because you emphasize the right of the employer to arrive as to it will like. Yes, you as if recognize, to put forward age limits - it is not absolutely lawful. But not everything in life occurs in strict accordance with the law, and it is possible to benefit by any offer - so show it to the employer.Beautiful and it is even more beautiful than
to Motivate the employer on communication with you - your main task. Let`s say the personnel officer agreed to explain to you why age restriction is set, for example:
- at work too small salary, and at solid age it is not suitable for people;
- work demands physical training and constant physical efforts.
also other reasons Can be li>. Unfortunately, the employer can hide from you the true reason of the set restrictions or only hint at it, for example, the requirement - young-looking appearance, and time, as we know, does not paint the person. In this case you have to have intuition and a step, to understand that it is about smooth skin, lack of wrinkles on the face. And further - everything depends on your commitment. You can quite try to convince the employer that you look 20 years younger, than is written in your passport.the Bargaining is pertinent
So, concerning age it is possible to bargain is the main thing that you have to understand when you read announcements of work. The bargaining is pertinent in case you:
- you possess a wide experience in the declared specialty;
- you have the mass of recommendations; difficulties are ready to transfer
- ; are ready
- to a small salary;
- of a legkoobuchayema; are ready
- to business trips, irregular working hours, frequent trips around the city; are stress-resistant
also that you, perhaps, will get to the atmosphere, unusual for yourself: you will be surrounded by people of other age. Whether you will be able to get on with them? Whether there will be enough at you endurance to resist their attacks? Whether you will be able to occupy a worthy niche in this segment? If yes, that to you nothing to be afraid.
