You better believe that 2 years exp is worth 10k/month these days. Plus, if any of that irresistible charm rubbed off his old boss onto him, he's probably worth 12k/month.

I've just started looking through a new batch of resumes (unfortunately these ones are in Australia though, so there won't be as many confusing englishes) and the first one I opened had this:

D.O.B: 07/11/1994

He included his date of birth in a job application so it's still pretty stupid.

Either that or your age is pretty standard info I thought.

*haven't applied for a job in forever though
It's actually detrimental for older people (50+) to put their age on their resumes these days. I imagine for various areas the same applies to young people.

You can always figure it out based on their education / work history anyway though so it isn't really going to make too much of a difference. If someone wants to impose age based restrictions on job recruitment, they'll find a way.
