28, a crappy IT degree which I don't usually put on CV, 1 years retail experience, good person whos never been to jail.

Do you think an employer would rather hire a 16 year old school leaver than me because for my age, I have very little experience?

They'd prefer a 28 year old who demonstrated transferable skills form whatever they had been doing in life.
