I am a freelance software developer. I have just received an email describing a possible position in Switzerland. Among the requirements, all others for technical knowledge & skills, was this:
Graduated in the last 5 – 10 years
Is this legal in Switzerland? My first thought was ageism, but then I realized that they (cleverly?) do not explicitly say that.
Perhaps they think that anyone who graduated before 10 years ago might not have been taught the necessary skills? (and, they don't care if they have acquired them in industry, rather than university)
It certainly smacks of ageism to me, but I wonder if someone could actually succeed with a discrimination case in a Swiss court.
