Age Considerations for Global Employment
I'm interested in doing the work described in Globally Employable. Does age limit you in this type of work?
Women and middle aged people entering UXO field?
by Steve Cassidy
I've been receiving some questions about whether women and our middle aged population should look at UXO or other work listed here on Globally Employable.
Personally, I think it’s great. I’m middle aged now, 44 years old. Being middle aged isn't what it used to be.
I competed in a half Ironman triathlon back in 1995. I was in very good shape so the 1.1 mile swim, 57 mile bike and 13.1 mile run weren’t too bad. At 6'5" tall and 235 pounds, I finished about 800th out of 1500 people competing in the race.
My time was 6 hours and 28 minutes and I was very happy with my time.
The funny thing is that I lost the race to a 60 year old Nun…by an hour! She clobbered me!
Do I think women and middle-aged people should do this? Absolutely!
It’s a wonderful business to be in with a strong employment outlook for years to come with the over 3500 UXO sites that are currently located in the US.
Be sure to check out some of our Success Stories on the site and see how all kinds of people have made the transition to a career field that is bit more exciting than your average job.
Thanks so much for writing and please let me know if you have any other questions.

Does age matter?
