Well, they generally ask for it on the application even if they don't require it in a resume.

She would casually look at each one and was making a growing pile of rejects. I asked what was wrong with the rejects and she answered that they were "too old". The very first thing she looked at was age and if they were over (I seem to remember) 35, they were rejected, no matter what previous experience they had. I argued that ageism was illegal and that people over 35, especially if they had been looking for a job for a while, would be much more likely to be loyal and work harder than school leavers that had never had a job before. They would also have a great deal of common sense, which in my opinion is more important in some jobs, than a string of qualifications. It did no good - it was "company policy" to employ younger people. I even pointed out the irony that by these policies, her company would have rejected her if she's just applied to work there.
Yet another reason she's my ex!
Ageism, sexism and racial prejudice may be illegal, and there is no way that an employer will admit that the reason you didn't get the interview was because of any of these reasons. They can always think of some other reason why you don't get that interview.
