Ok that tells me you have no need or motivation to move into a development role, anyone with a bit of initiative would have achieved this by now. You seem to be the perfect candidate for ACADEMIA, so stay there.

In the real world you need to have either talent and flair or experience. By the sound of it you have little or no talent/flair and you have no experience and do not have the initiative to get it.

There are 25 YO's out there with more experience than you have and they are a dammed sight hungrier than you are, I agree with the headhunters, after trying for 15 years you need to have another set of goals, development is not going to be for you.

Hone your skills as a teacher/trainer as I believe you may have a better opportunity to move into IT through this path.

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
