Juan,

I was a little older then you when I made the change. 37! I came from one engineering stream to another so had a lot of transferable and proven skills and I looked upon the first few years in IT as self investment. Read that as I took the hit and came in at the bottom but have very quickly shown that life experiance dealing with people and my personnel ability have more then out shone the youngsters with IT degrees and Certs galore and my career is moving on almost at a quicker pace then I am ready for!
