Sainath's Advice on Sunday, November 07, 2010 :
There is no age barrier as such - it all depends on your skill set. You can always enter the industry - but you will need to make a humble beginning and progress slowly.You are right in assuming that faculty experience will not be considered - but there are many people I know who successfully made the switch, of course after some degree of an initial struggle.
Another alternative to consider is the independent trainer route - people who are good in this area earn a good deal, moreover, they are not affiliated to any employer and have no upper ceiling on their incomes.
