I'm in my early 50's and have more than a decade of career IT experience. I left aerospace in my late 30's to pursue IT as my 2nd career and spent 5 years on a helpdesk before breaking through to Network Ops at age 45. Spent the last 7 years in Network Integration and Infrastructure (primarily as a network admin) and I'm now looking to expand my skillset to SAN and BUR solutions. The reason why I chose IT as my 2nd career was due to the fluid and evolving nature of the field and the necessity to continually learn new technologies. It's never too late to start your career in IT and there are no missed windows other than the ones you close by not trying. Good luck!
