Too old to start again?


Dear Doctor,

I am in my 43, with MEngg - Mech & over 20 years of R&D in engineering field (mostly managerial) experience with PRC exposure.

I am recently unemployed and find I could hardly find a vacancy matched as most of them required very low salary (less than 30K per month).

I don't mind to get these experience from junior post like accountant or whatever and cutting half of my current salary. I just afraid my age is too old to compete these job.

Would it be more easier to can these type of job through headhunter. As I think the recruiter will simply throw away my CV with their first glance of my date of birth.

So what should I do ?
