Career Changing At 56 Years Old:Comment Of The Day

 Derrick has left a new comment on your post "Career Change at 40, 50+": 

Great story! I'm a great example of a 50+ year old who has had to make various career changes. I have been a U.S. Marine who was trained in public affairs. When I was discharged I worked as a police officer for 15 years until small town politics forced me to seek another profession. I then worked as a radio announcer for many years until I was in my mid-40's. I then became a truck driver and realized that the job did not stimulate me enough. I went to Iraq as a private contractor for about three years and when I came back I faced a tough economy with few jobs. I studied and got a few computer certifications during nine months of unemployment and now I work for a national cable company as a tier 3 technical support agent at 56 years old! My peers are much younger but I came well prepared and my age has been a benefit rather than a hindrance. This will most likely be the last job I will have as I plan to use their pension to provide a decent retirement in about 10 years God willing, but nobody can't tell me that it can't be done! Thanks for your article!
