Buck up -- its been a long string of bad years to be an engineer period, but the job market is recovering and increasingly accepting older engineers as companies learn there are not nearly enough 3-4-5-6 year people they can hire cheaply who DNA match their bloated requirements, and also that such people (including offshore engineers with 3-4-5-6 years experience) are more quick than ever to hop away from dead end jobs and badly companies. Good luck to all!

I'm happy for you that you've had a successful, very long and continuing career. However, YOU ARE FULL OF IT (baloney I guess).

Ah, I see... We have here just another midget critic who can't help but fall off of the shoulders of the giants he rails against, yet wants to impugn them in order to make his own ineptitude seem unimportant.

What a bunch of baloney. I just turned 72 (actually my 18th real birthday :) and I still design around 4 Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's every year. My present client has no employees as old as my oldest child, yet they certainly like my designs.

Older engineers with their massive experience do consultancy successfully. Also they run many kinds of training divisions. Also those lead their lives calmly do things on the world wide web.Nowadays there is lot of scope for every elderly person provided they have their mind set and kept their physical health also. Need not be idle.

Funny! And close to April first. Heard a tale of an EEE (Elderly Electronics Engineer) who could do differential equations in his head but could not get a job in his field. So when his employment insurance ran out he became a Wallymart greeter. On his first day he was doing fine until a rather unpleasant-looking woman came in with two young boys. He greeted with "Wonderful children, ma'am. Are they twins?" She snarled back "Hell no, one's 7 and one's 9, how can you be so (bleeep) stupid?" "Well ma'am, I didn't think anyone would have slept with you twice." Later the management decided that EEEs are not cut out to be greeters. The EEE changed careers and became a farmer, and was outstanding in his field...

A brief and clever anthropological study of the EE genus. Bonus that the first sentence evokes the impression of our destiny to become the "Keef Risharzz" (as he's known down at the pub) of technology; still able to lay down a mean riff of opamps and gates, but increasingly devoid of an appreciative, paying audience.

Richard, you are the master of bitter sarcasm, and clearly you have reason to be. This is the most depressing engineering blog I have read in a long time. You are an outstanding writer and I look forward to future blogs -- hopefully ones that are a little less steeped in despair!
