Too old ?

Dear Doctor,

I am in my mid-40s, with ACCA, MBA & over 20 years of commercial (mostly managerial) experience but with no PRC exposure.

I am recently unemployed and find I could hardly find a vacancy matched as most of them required PRC / banking / insurance / listed co. experience.

I don't mind to get these experience from junior post like accountant or whatever and cutting half of my current salary. I just afraid my age is too old to compete these job.

Would it be more easier to can these type of job through headhunter. As I think the recruiter will simply throw away my CV with their first glance of my date of birth.

And what do you think about a even lower position that may be introduced by a friend ?

So what should I do ?
