Converting high-tech professionals at age 50 + - to or not?

Recommended Posts

I'm a little old 48, without a college degree working in quality control as a quality controller.

Today I am considering a retraining course for Qa software reviewer and want to know if you can pass this course without any previous background, as well as whether you can find a job at this age and would be happy to receive advice from you.

I do not know about the difficulty in finding a job and if it is age related in this field, what since I have a girlfriend who did it at 45 and she really was not too technological before moving to games she played when she was a teenager and writing in WORD and such, she studied INT and was satisfied, they Arrange for her a job after and in terms of materials she did not encounter any difficulties more than her younger ones, I understood from her that the content is clear and the lecturers work in the field and convey the material well, I am also considering retraining and considering this course with them

Thanks to Dawn, it is certainly encouraging but still hard to decide because I see how age still does its thing and how it is still treated differently, so not necessarily for the good people of that age.

That is why the decision is very important to me, and it is a pity that there are not enough people who respond.

And thanks again and a fun weekend to everyone.

Already age 35 in high-tech is considered too old. It is very difficult to find a job at the age of 35 even with experience and a good name. From experience., Takes about a year if at all.


not always.

I am 41 and have not had any problems.


My father worked in the field until he retired.


None of us come in at this age, but if you're after a first job then it sounds perfectly possible to me.


Does the post developer have the option of being accepted for one job (family, friends, other options)
