Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request.


@FASA_Andrew_1879 Just based on what you've posted you sound like you would be a good fit as a Technical Account Manager at pick a security software vendor any vendor, most are hurting for TAMs. The larger the org the better, as they tend to have a recruitment office, so the recruiters will try to fit you with anything they have open. Think Symantec, Mcafee, Palo Alto, those kind of places.

@FASA_Andrew_1879 @seven red hat, elastic, hp, datadog were also hiring TAMs, last I checked

Good luck from a fellow beekeeper and old white guy in IT.

@FASA_Andrew_1879 This may or may not help, but this site was posted to a slack I'm part of this morning: (Job listings from companies claiming to want to fight ageism in tech)

Sorry you've got to deal with this!

@FASA_Andrew_1879 If anything here looks interesting pls ping me. I'm one dept over from IT in analytics, happy to answer questions.

@FASA_Andrew_1879 over on birdsite I read that the Brave browser team is looking for a technical writer in the SF area. Can search for the tweet if you want.

@Kiki Found the job listing by going to, thanks for the pointer

My employer, "Cirium, Inc" is hiring software engineer and I think sysadmins ("Site Reliability Engineer") in Alpharetta, GA and Portland, OR. I was hired back when they allowed remote work, but I don't think that's an option any more. :(


I'm putting it in the ears of those I believe are looking for such.

Thank you for whatever you did at FASA back in the day; I can't tell you how much Shadowrun changed my life, and -- I mean, I know, everybody there was doing some part of the work. Even if you weren't writing it, you were supporting it.

Thank you. ❤️ I hope one of these myopic and shortsighted orgs pulls their head out of their ass.

@sydneyfalk thank you for the support. For the record, I was a freelancer in the old days and did some minor work for Shadowrun, a good deal more for Earthdawn, and am now with the reassembled FASA as line developer of 1879.

@FASA_Andrew_1879 @sydneyfalk

I will whole heartedly vouch for the quality of the #1879 RPG.

@FASA_Andrew_1879 UNOS is looking for a few IT positions in Richmond, Virginia. For most of them you will need to be able to pass a low level clearance to stay employed. Feel free to ask me any questions.

@trebach Thanks for the lead. There aren't any positions listed currently that I'm qualified for. I'll check back in a few days.

@FASA_Andrew_1879 There are many job offerings available in our city, including the company I work for:
