Out of work for six years
I don't know what else to do. I am 55 years old. I don't look my age but my grey hair doesn't help me. I have a master's of science degree in Organisational Management. I have years of management and five years being a Project Manager. I feel I am comfortable and confident during my interviews. But I can't get any job offers. Not to mention all the job posting are paying about half or less then what I was making. I do know of a lot of people that have had to take jobs at half what they have been making, but I cannot even get any offer. I present myself well and do all the things you should do during an interview. I have been sitting home for six years now and I can't take it anymore. I must get a job. I look for jobs everyday for about four hours on my computer everyday. I also have a vocational job support group that helps me every week. I think each position has so many candidates applying for the same job that someone my age does not have a chance. Please let me know what you think I could do differently. Thank you and if you are out of work I hope you find something.
I have 17 plus years of Project Management experience and have not been able to land a position for six months. I ideally want to get into the healthcare field but find it hard to break through without any or minimal health experience. Any suggestions?
Over 20 years of experience in construction residential and commercial. Managed more that 40 employees. Currently I perform energy audits on homes in the the Johnson County, KS area and looking for project manger position..
Does this Help?
I applied online to several reputable construction companies for a Project Manager position. Thinking back, I should have included a cover letter with each application and resume to stand out with corporate recruiters. Does anyone read cover letters anymore? All my experience and skills are on my resume but I still have time to go back and add a cover letter if that’s going to boost my chances to get an interview. What should I put on a cover letter that isn’t already on the application and resume? Suggestions??
Project Managers or any type of technical Telecom opportunities
