    I'm 26 and I think about this all the time. I work as an in-house designer for a company in the HR space. We frequently conduct user interviews with people searching for jobs and we frequently hear about acts of ageism. This is not specific to design, but it is especially prevalent in the tech industry. As the world becomes more digital, I feel like this will only get more pronounced. It is heartbreaking and it would be foolish to think we're immune to it.

    Personally, I don't see myself ever retiring with a capital R because work is fulfilling for me and it keeps my brain active. That being said, I want to be in a place where I feel financially secure so as to not panic if something goes awry. I expect to have fewer work opportunities as I get older so I anticipate needing to find ways to support and fulfill myself.
