For people who are 50-years old and would like to work again or change jobs, the job vacancies in London look very appealing. However, the job market today is a battle field for them, despite the fact that they are old hands in their field of work, applicants with less experience and fewer skills are still preferred by companies.

When I was growing up as something of a surly youth way back when, I had my own idea of what I wanted and what the world owed me.
