Changing Jobs at 54

I'm 54 years old. I have an undergraduate degree in computer science and a masters degree in software engineering. I have sent my resume to many firms and no reponse. Do you think that my age is the problem?

In this video I explain how to "guesstimate" the age of the average person in your occupation and level of employment.
- Ask people in your personal and professional network.
- Join an online professional network such as LinkedIn where you can ask questions and see profiles of people in your line of work.
- Participate in blogs and listserves that discuss your profession and industry.
