The toughest part about landing a job right now is...

My age, I don't get alot of responses. One recruiter asked me " how many years you got left in you"? I said F*#& you and hung up.

Hi, Mark...

  1. I'd like to have a discussion with the recruiter. No matter how you cut that question--it is illegal. Just like asking a candidate about his/her/their last salary (in many jurisdictions) is illegal.

  2. I'd like to have a conversation with you about how to answer that question...even when you are so frustrated that you can barely hold your temper.

I'd bet a Starbucks Grande I've got you in years; I NEVER get asked that question--I don't give away any clues...I stop my resume at about 12 years ago, I don't list my dates of graduation from ANY of the several universities I've attended nor my high school graduation.

Ageism is pernicious; got to be both wise and canny...and ILLEGITIMUS NON-CARBORUNDUM. As we used to say...

Bill--who has walked that mile many a time...

Do you know if we have to complete any forms for our unemployment benefits prior to them running out?

How can you expect to find work when you're not attracting employers? Your résumé is blank. How can an employer know what can of work are you looking for? What are your skills? What is your experience in this field? What is your education level? There's this successful fellow in Kentucky who goes by the name of Dustin Wunderlich. He says that people don't get what they want, because they don't know what they want. In your case, you want a job, but do you know how to get one? Start with a résumé. It will populate your profile.

Is Harrison a city, or a store chain? If the latter, many would love to work for Harrison, but doing what? I looked at your profile and résumé. One thing is to be a mystery shopper, another is to be a mystery job candidate. Both your profile and résumé are blank! The first thing an employer will ask, is what can you bring into the workplace. What is your job experience? What are your skills? What's your education level? These are key questions, because no employer will hand you a job for the asking, not even in a "right to work" state.

Prepare your résumé, and do it in detail. Print it and bring it with you to the stores. Chain stores don't take paper applications anymore. They sit you down in a booth in the back of the store, right by the layaway counter and you type your application... in a computer. If you have a "thing" against computers, you can ask for accommodation and they may give you a paper application to fill out. But if you're afraid of computers, I'm afraid you may not be hired.

The most important thing is to gain experience. You can do that by either volunteering for an agency or being a part-time employed caretaker, or respite provider for a family or agency. Adding education helps you to progress in a more responsible position.

A woman in a male industry

I get so tired of having to constantly fight or prove that I know what I'm talking about! For instance, today I needed some material unloaded in order to keep one of the machines running so I went to our receiving coordinator and told him which trucks I needed unloaded first. I let everyone know in our production meeting what was going on. Our Superintendent (to whom I no longer report) comes out and tells me that he looked for those trucks and didn't see them and I must have had it mixed up with something else. I was in the middle of something else so I couldn't stop but I tell him I know what I saw this morning. He says he's going to have something else set up on that machine and goes to my boss and says I was mistaken and he is going to have that machine run something else. As soon as I was able, I went right back to receiving and pulled the paperwork I saw in the first place and took it to the Superintendent and showed him. Do you think he went back to my boss and told him that I was actually right and that he was wasting machine time by having them run something we didn't need?

If I go to my boss and bring it up, do I look like I'm whining?
