Looking at some posts on this time I have been concerned at someone posting about difficulties in being considered for jobs beyond 50. I am 53 and would be 55 when applying for my probationary job in science. I am looking at retraining when my youngest goes to University. Do you think I am naiive in considering this? I am fit. I've worked in industry and business and have a postgraduate degree already in Information Science. But will they look beyond my age?
