Last week I had a conversation with a late 50 year old Java Developer here in Minneapolis. He was looking for some career and job search advice. I had not yet seen his resume and not looked him up online so I had no “bias” leading up to our conversation.
We spoke a bit about his skill set, experience and what he wants to be working on. I was thinking:
Dang, I don’t get why this guy is needing advice. He’s really good.
About halfway into our chat he asked:
Why can’t us grey haired folks find a job? I am not too old to code.
