It's not when 'careers' end that matters, given that if you are gainfully working then it is still a career, but rather where/when it starts so that you can navigate, or at least steer, your way to a happy old age.

Old age will come despite what all the "it's over by 40" headlines say. It's usually that folk get experienced, and experience usually pays in whatever you are good at (even COBOL, so I've heard).

Management often pays that bit better (so they say) because many [technically oriented folks] don't really want to do it!

If all you are after is $$$ then there are plenty of bad jobs that pay well because they are known to be bad. The trick is matching your skills and expectations to the customer's (employer's) needs.

Look for the wave to ride, not the wave you've just missed.
