As a tech writer, I have always found my years of experience to be an
advantage in finding work, not a disadvantage. And I have only
interviewed for direct-hire jobs.

...If you are seeking direct employment, it is best to do your own
hunting and make your own applications. But if you are not in your 20s
recently out of school, or some fast rising star in your field, you may
find getting direct employment a difficult task. If you are in your late
40s or 50s, you had better have a couple of patents, a bunch of trade
fame, or something that someone wants badly. If you are just a regular
sort of employee, odds are greatly against you getting a direct job at
that age.
