Do not miss or be late for your first interview you will be marked as no-show and can't apply for that position for 6 months ,
I think some companies look at age when they shouldn't. I am experiencing some of the same problems. I have very good background and experience, but it's 5 months now with no job.

I have an interview there tomorrow at 2pm.. I will let you know how the in person goes, already did a virtual interview..
I just had a interview and really want this position. they said they would reach out in 2 weeks it’s been a week. Is it good idea to write the interviews or recruiters a letter? If so any suggestions advice?
I think it's good practice to write a brief thank you email after an interview. Regardless of what happens, it's good to take initiative and be courteous. But yeah sure it's good to be excited to work for a company...one time I was working for a golf course and the golf instructor who wanted the job brought chicken soup to the HR lady who had stomach ache. I like to leave a small greeting card with their name on it. I feel like it's just a nice way to say thanks....
Never Give Up, Never Give In
This post was inspired by a Fair Chance to Succeed group member, James. He is a new member & I want to thank him for reaching out & sharing his experience with us.
It's about working harder for less, thinking things are looking up & then getting passed over even when your performance deserves recognition & the rewards you've earned are given to others instead.
This is a hard situation to be in, no doubt about it. I could give you all the cliches about staying motivated & hanging in there but they don't alleviate that feeling of injustice do they?
It's frustrating to be that person. WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO DO MOVING FORWARD is one thing you have complete control to make choices about. That is what can make or break your endeavor to be successful.
I used to refer to what I called the "Rug Syndrome" when assisting my clients to build better lives for themselves. It's what people experience when they're at the point where they think things are going in the right direction, they're feeling pretty hopeful & their feet are planted solidly & then someone or something comes along & jerks the rug out from underneath their feet. To make matters worse, it seems to happen when we least expect it. It can feel like a devastating blow after all the effort put forth.
Truth is, it happens to most everyone. The hard part is getting back up & moving forward. We have to remember that life doesn't owe us anything & some of us have to work harder than others to get our needs met. Our worst enemy is the negative self-talk we allow ourselves to indulge in when feeling defeated.
Never give up, never give in! Keep pushing. It is for your benefit after all, no-one else's. "Your time will come" was a phrase I heard frequently along my journey & I never believed it but I kept pushing myself through the frustration & rejection & I did get what I was striving for in time. Not MY time-line mind you, but eventually. "Eventually" could be tomorrow or a year from now but giving up or giving in will change "eventually" to "never".
Where can I get basic computer training
Community colleges have good training programs and sometimes have grants for workplace training. Meeting with an advisor is a good way to start.
It may help if you were more transparent in your request in finding a certificate of sponsorship to relocate to.
A Certificate of Sponsorship is not a paper certificate or document, but a virtual document, similar to a database record. A Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) is an electronic document that will hold your personal details and information about the job that you’ve been offered. Once the CoS has been granted, the hospital will assign this to you and you’ll be given a CoS number.
Do you have this number? The Certificate of Sponsorship is an electronic document confirming the personal information of the applicant and details of the job offered to them. Each CoS has a unique reference number for use in the applicant’s visa application. Certificates of sponsorship can only be issued by an employer with a valid sponsorship license. The Home Office’s register of sponsors, known as the Tier 2 Sponsors List, details all those organizations currently operating with a sponsor license. For more info.
Well, the question now is where do you want to relocate to?
