Legal Question

Asked on: 9/24/13, 7:21 am

I went on an interview for I.T. Engineer. During which, the CEO disclosed that I was too old to start out in the I.T. Field, that the younger generation was much better at computers even though I have recently been certified in computer technology with the Comp Tia Net Plus Certification and a few others. He said that he wouldn't be able to do it, so I wouldn't be able to. He also said I was living a pipe dream. Then he disclosed that the real reason he wanted to interview me was to be his company's remodeler. So basically, he lied as to why he brought me in and told me I couldn't do the I. T. position because I was too old to start over. He said that because I am an older man, I had no hope of getting into the I. T. Field and make a decent wage. I said that I disagree because I have a Bachelors Degree from the Univ of Cincinnati and am currently enrolled in an I. T. School which is teaching me all about I. T. My proof are my Degree and the Certifications I have received and will receive. Question is: Would this constitute age discrimination?
