Hey, John:
Thanks for your very thoughtful reply. I think I'll just try and be positive about the whole thing (like you are). If they need java people, then I'll get so good they'll HAVE to hire me --even if they're a young kid like you!

Hi: I've had my own commercial website for five years, but want to move out into the IT job market. I plan to study Java and pass the certification exam. I'll be 61 years old by that time, and hope to add VB and C++ study and certs within a couple of years as well.
Anybody think I'd get hired at my age with the Java Programmer Certification? Will my self-employed web experience count as "experience?"
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Tom
P.S. I should add that I live in the Seattle area, and would be able to(and prefer to) work here.
