Software engineer Jesse Severe says he can pretty much throw a dart on a map and find a job. The 41-year-old from San Diego says he’s contacted by headhunters at least once a month, at times has been able to work from home for half his workweek and makes a comfortable living.
All those factors and others landed software engineer in the No. 1 spot on a newly-released study of the 200 best and worst jobs by CareerCast.com, a career website owned by Adicio Inc. (Until last year, Wall Street Journal owner News Corp. held a minority stake in Adicio.)
The most reassuring part of this article? “The 41-year old…” Age discrimination is a serious worry for my tribe; approaching 50 as I am, it’s good to hear that we’re doing well.
