I am 47 and think that I am too old to get back into the IT field. i did Gateway and Dell fee bse tech suport, university Network tech support even when I did not know half of what I kow now.
I have experienced the same problem of the entry-level query: They want someone who can set Active Directory, notice a node down on a WAN from a remote location. I provide free tech support on lione to keep my skills honed. Still no one will hire me. I hold two business degtress and a pc certifications, A+ and MCP working on the MCSE hopefully in security.
I am now washing dishes becasue no one will hire me. I look 32 though I am 47, I speak on the same level as anyone else and do not sound the half century mark. What to do?

Some advice

by BFilmFan In reply to It Careers

Apply to every position you see open for which your skill set matches.

Move for work.

Or get into a new field.

Those are about your only options.

And if you are washing dishes for a living, I'd advise you to choose option 2 or 3.
