An ageless resume is a resume designed to highlight experience and achievements without
revealing a candidate's chronological age. Why do this? Do this to present your
"best self" on paper and to avoid initial age discrimination. This resume
is in a functional format which focuses on different position functions
and is helpful if you are changing careers or have gaps in your experience.
