Career

I am 40+. I worked for a few years after Post Grad and due to family constraints had taken a long sabbatical. About 5 years ago I went to back to work moved from small firms to a corporate. However, I find myself still at the entry level position. My colleagues at the same level were not even born when I finished my college. I really feel very old amongst them and cannot gel with them also it bugs me that people of my age in the firm are at very senior position.Switching over jobs I dont will make sense either as it will be the same trend everywhere. I dont know how to address this issue. Please suggest

Ans: You have identified the problem correctly. You can either disregard that feeling of being junior and enjoy what you are doing and prove yourself as the best. Other than that you can start something on your own. There are no other options I feel. Regards and best
