49 years old here and just got a job at EA Games (starting in 5 days.. yeeee) with 0 knowledge of game engine! Blush | :O
They were looking for a WPF developer and I fit the bill quite well plus I am curious good at learning and my resume shows it!
Also working on contract now which pays quite well.

It used to be difficult to get a job. It seems much easier these days. It's a combination, I reckon. I changed job every 3 years so I guess I did lots of things. And I also try to alternate web and WPF so I got good skill coverage. Plus I always strive to be be good at my job and learn all I need, so I have answers to many question if they want to grill my skills. And also, funnily enough I reckon, the more they pay you, the more they are trusting you, even during the job interview. Although that last one make some sort of sense an under performing expensive contractor get ditched pretty quick....
