Hi Janis,
I'm very much in the same boat. I went back to school at 35 and after 10 years and a degree in English and Philosophy, I find I'm actually over educated for jobs that fit my outdated skills. Before I went back to school I worked as a Circulation Director in magazine publishing. At the time the Web was just beginning to have internet magazines and now when I apply for anything in my field I'm viewed as a dinosaur. Its hard to even get a non-paying internships because they are looking for younger interns that who they believe will be more malleable and won't remind them of their mother. I'm hoping Robin's tips will tip the scale in my favor.
