I'm 50+ now and finding new regular or contract work is a PITA. And it shouldn't be. I have skills and aptitude to absorb and adapt to any new situations and languages way beyond what any of my college age brethren might have. But. I send out a perfectly good resume, use the more obvious resources, and still few bites for someone requiring to work remotely. Am I just whining, or is this common? Are we being put out to pasture far too early?
