We have many people here as members that are in mid-career or even late-career. This in no way should mean they are no longer productive or of tremendous value. Some food for thought about how our industry will treat all of us as we move along in our careers. This sort of thinking needs to be revised. No one is young forever.
"Employers don't want to overpay for experience. Most employers I know are looking for someone with "just enough" experience to enable them to hit the ground running, while still having something to learn by working for them. When an overqualified person applies, the immediate assumption is they will get bored quickly. Additionally, employers fear the seasoned pro will have an intellectual superiority complex. Meaning, they'll want to show everyone how much they know by sharing why things need to be done a certain way. In short, the more experience you have, the more bias you are up against."
