Looks like we are quite similar.

I am a Diploma holder, aged 40 with my last drawn salary around 5k-6k (Senior Engineer) in my previous job before co-founding a company with some backing from existing customers some 4 years ago.

It hasn't work out as what I had plan since I couldn't get a feasible size loan for company expansion.

These days, I have to lower my salary demands to 3k and below in order to get any chance for a job interview.
