I'll be 66 in July, currently a systems designer. Other than the four months of COVID shutdown I have not been out of work - other than taking time off for travel - since I
got out of school in the mid 1980s.

There is no real "obstacle" IF you have kept your skills up (there is not much call for FORTRAN programmers). AND IF your are willing to work (there is always a place for
do-nothing managers but they are never hired as such). AND IF you like what you do (being
miserable at work because you don't like what you do is just plain dumb).

Do not let someone sell you on this idea "it ends at 40". Maybe it did for them, maybe they
should have been selling insurance from the beginning not doing IT.
