Older engineers can build web community


Sir, A man from the Third Age Employment Network was quoted recently as saying there is a 'shortage of engineers and a great army of 50 to 60-year-old unemployed civil engineers'.

Can any readers confirm whether this is correct, and if so, where I can find further information to substantiate it.

I am interested in readers' views as I am considering setting up an internet forum for such engineers to share their experiences ? not, I should stress, a recruitment agency.
