Hard to sell over 50 folks
Most corproations still use IT recruiters allowing the recruiter to ask questions that are illegal for the corporation to ask.  They make the initial assessment including your age, sex, and health. It's rare corporations will allow the recruiter to evaluate anyone over 50.   Unless you have years of highly specialized expericne in a current technology (i.e. Cisco, Oracle DB, SAP CRM, etc) you'll never get past this first gate.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
