    Well, it appears that the client has made me an offer. I say "appears" because it's never final until the day one starts the new job.

    This is more than a little bizarre because my both my last perm gig that started in 2014 and my current contract gig that started last December were one-time interviews. I can only surmise that the tech market is so tight that employers will try anyone who can maintain a pulse and respiration - heh.

    Theoretically I will start on Tuesday.

    Congratulations. You have a ton of experience and they pick up on the fact that you know the technology that you work with. I work in tech also and can weed people out quickly. Plus they probably like your no bs attitude.

    Owner thought that too. But with ObamaCare, it matters not. At 26K Uncle Sugar picks up your whole health insurance tab. At 94K YOU pick it up. Everyone in between gets hit in varying amounts.

    If you don't earn much above table - you don't pay much. If you earn MUCHLY below table, Uncle Sugar cares - but only if he finds out about it.

    Cash is King. Providing one has SOMETHING (A W2, 1099s, education reimbursements, gifts from children) they can point the IRS to. Even those who appear insolvent (i.e. income below expense) are mostly left alone if they APPEAR to be following the rules and file regular and often. Possibly quarterly if they don't have regular withholding.

    Owner says Uncle Sugar has a hard enough time getting all those Immigrants to file. I can see it could be a full time job. Those humans with obvious support but never bother to do the paperwork.

    In a way, ObamaCare has opened a freedom gate for those who are afraid of age adverse outcomes. Dare I say that Employers see that gate too and are more likely to let an employee go at 59.82 years old (Owner) and be less likely to be sued for "age discrimination."

    Another unintended consequence.

    Income guarantee (when it comes) will make it worse.

    That is great news! I was following this with interest as a person over 50. I keep hearing the job market is hot and it looks like where you are it is. I hope it works out for you

    It shouldn't scare you. You have what recent grads don't have: tons of experience. You've seen so many situations and failures/successes you almost intuitively know how to approach an issue while someone with less experience is still trying to figure out what is needed.

    I am actually thinking of trying to get some at home tech employment. I know I can't do a regular job but even at 70 I can think and use the computer. If these employers are really looking for some good employees maybe they would consider some seasoned citizens with most of their brain function still intact.

    Wow that was quick! But that's the best way-no lag between paychecks is always the best way. You have experience in a field where even the newbies make a good living. You're head and shoulders above them because you have both practical experience and something even more endearing to an employer. That extra special sauce is your patience and wisdom. Yes, employers are more apt to disregard one's age just to get the experience you have. Age isn't a detriment in many fields any more. My company has made a number of hires of people over 65 actually. It's just because you can't get the experience anywhere else. A work issue that would totally rattle a millenial won't even faze an older, more experienced person. Age is the new ace in the hole in hiring with any number of companies these days.

    SO GLAD to hear this news! I bet both dogs are dancing with joy!
