I have been applying for dozens of jobs, with a very good resume and work history with no gaps and long term employment. Not a single bite,,I'm 57 and in excellent health.
You got the job offer, you are so excited. But did you really get the job offer?
Companies that are on the up and up will always, not sometimes but always do the following:
Send you a job offer, and what is included in that letter is Critical;. Keep that letter, make copies. Hopefully, you will not need to point anything out that is not being done.
Job offers can vary but they should at a minimum have the following information.
... and to ALL of you for that matter!! If you are not actively networking with friends, family and other associates you may be missing THE opportunity to land that new job! Let the people in your circle know you are looking for work and ask if they have leads or can introduce you to business owners or hiring managers.
It IS who you know -- and you'd be surprised at the introductions and referrals you can find just by asking. Who should you…
Hi all, my name is Allana Akhtar and I'm a reporter at Business Insider.
I just published a report on how ageism, not a skills gap, is the biggest barrier to keeping older adults from high-paying work. (& I even got some help from Jobcase CEO Fred Goff).
I'd love to hear your thoughts. Here's the story: https://www.businessinsider.com/retraining-doesnt-help-older-workers-find-jobs-because-of-ageism-2019-5
I'm 57 years old getting back into the restaurant business boy do I feel like I've been punched in the gut!Discrimination is so real these younger people are so horrible made me feel like I'm stupid .The computers are not my best thing but I can keep up as far as taking care of customers and then some .How many of you are feeling my pain?
Was on the phone with a job recruiter 2 days ago and he went through the normal questions and routine of a phone interview and had asked me when I graduated college. I told him 1999 and he told me I was from the
Anyone else ever get these kind of remarks? Any feedback or advice would greatly be appreciated.
I am an Honorably discharged Veteran, and I am 69 years of age. I am in need of employment! Social security doesn't pay the bills. I don't have my own vehicle, so that limits my search. I have applied at the businesses in my neighborhood, and I have been interviewed many times.
I have to walk. I walk with a cane. I am clean-cut, I answer their questions.
Honestly, I wonder if it is my speech, my silver hair, the way I dress, my age, or my cane…
For most of my career, I was a transportation specialist. The road took away from me more than it ever gave back in terms of my health. I never slept right ate right or got enough exercise. I developed type two diabetes and suffer from arthritis, however over the past several years I have made considerable strides and am considering entering the job market but so far have been unsuccessful. I am a self-starter, relatively intelligent, honest and…
One of the biggest barriers to finding employment is a preconceived notion. Yes, while age discrimination does occur, it isn't automatically the reason you're not finding a job. Chances are it's something else.

So confused, frustrated, blue. Had an interview last week for a prestigious position but I'm not holding my breath. Will hear by end of week next week.
Been searching for more than 2 years and I'm at my wits end.
So few opportunities in my area to apply for and even fewer interviews. The interviews are good ones with big name companies and with people with good reputations in startup companies but it ends with an interview and goes nowhere…
1). College Graduate.
2) 35 years of uninterrupted employment.
3) numerous skills.
Yet, I cannot find a job. The only places that hire me are <$10/hr call centers. Forget big companies, they want young and dumb. I'm logging my work searches and seriously considering hiring a lawyer to file age discrimination lawsuit. Tired of imbecile young manager interviews. Email with your thoughts.
