Perhaps you are not aware of age discrimination laws in the United 
States.  A
job offer with a requirement such as

    "We are looking for someone who is under 30"

is in violation of U.S. law.  Not only can you be prosecuted for 
breaking the
law, but you and your company can be sued for large amounts of money.  
to say, this is also very poor public relations for your company.  Clean 
up your act.
