    Why are people over 40 less preferred jobwise? Is it because they have too much experience? Or is it because they are more capable of rising up the ladder?

    I don’t think there’s such a thing as “too much experience”. If you need a life-saving operation, would you rather have a young doctor just out of residency or an experienced surgeon who’d performed hundreds if not thousands of these operations? No brainer. The answer to your question – it’s usually cheaper – in terms of salary an health insurance – to hire someone just out of college. In high-tech fields, younger managers may feel (justifiably or not) that older people are not as techno-savvy. Just Curious
