The only things that matter in most industries are your skills and your reputation. If you've been out of work for a few years, I'd recommend that you develop your skills (i.e. upskill yourself) by getting the skills you need to get a new job. You can use the list here (https://www.slideshare.net/linkedin/the-25-skills-that-could-get-you-hired-in-2016) for the skills most in demand. In order to get these skills, you can Google where you can find these skills - note that EdX, Coursera and Udacity have some great low-priced courses that you can check out.
