Work for "older" female?

I see ads for jobs requiring females be under 30 or even under25. If I'm looking to get a job in a hotel or bar, will I be unsuccessful due to me being older than that? I'm an American.

Its not necessarily like that. Hotels prefer women to be under a certain age category for reasons best known to them but that is limited to table service. For all others kinds of jobs, i think experienced personnel are the preferred option. Don't let the adverts discourage you from applying.
