Dying your hair would help with the interview impressions, but every company is doing credit checks now, and even if you have great credit, your birthdate is on the top right hand corner of the report. That gives them access to most of your personal records, including health insurance claims. So if they're screening for age or health issues, which most are, you will be eliminated.

I would like to ask you women out there if you've run into bias
because of age or the fact that your hair is gray. I would also like to
any men on the list who are in hiring positions to weigh in on the matter.
