+ 0 Votes 67 Yr old IT Professional billballew 4 years ago Forget Cisco. They discriminate terribly. I was downsized at age 54 and they were the worst of the insults I recieved while job searching. There are a lot of really better companies to work for out there. Just keep plugging. Most IT hiring managers are looking for the quintessential 13 year old genius with 20 yrs experience. i.e. not too bright there.. But there are opportunities. Just keep trying. I was able to work in IT till I was 63. I quit because of the poor quality leadership of the 13 year olds. Good luck.
