Ready to retire
30 years ago when I went for an interview for a programmer position, my resume was looked at, there was a brief discussion / interview then a decision was made. The vast majority of the time I was hired. After I was able to program in over a dozen different languages about 15 years ago, all listed on my resume, I could select the job and company. Today, there are too many people out of work and too many in this career field. Network today? With who? I seldom find anyone who has my background, technical skills and is my age. All I see is age discrimination as I go to interview after interview. The manger is typically 10 or more years younger than me. Nice article for the youngsters Toni, how about one for us veterans. It is - It's not what you know but who you know. Cynical? That's ok. I sincerely hope others who have been around as long as I have speak up.
