I also was unexpectedly let go from my job 3 months ago after 15 years. At 61 I am finding the job market pretty tough. I have numerous resumes out and have had a couple interviews but no callbacks yet. The thing I have found to get through and keep the bills paid is a food delivery service. I won't mention names but there are several available. The hiring process is very quick and the work is pretty easy. If you don't mind driving, this can... see more
Things don't always go as planned especially when it's a big day! My car started overheating the night before the interview. No way was i going to cancel an #interview as those are few and far between for me. I checked google maps and saw the location is 9 miles away. Luckily for me i still had a bicycle in the garage. I brought a few bottles of water and my interview clothes in a bag so they would not get sweaty. I found a bathroom a couple... see more

- Use keywords - look at the job posting and use the exact language that's in the description, including titles & acronyms. Be true to your own experience (don't... see more
Hello Community, I've really tried to keep an open eye on issues around ageism, especially since I"m no spring chicken myself, and since I was made aware of the trend via this group. In my efforts, I've not only spoken with co-workers who hire but also 40+ friends about their job hunt challenges. I wanted to provide some perspectives, I think will be helpful.
Before I do, I want to say that although potential solutions can be on us, that... see more
My advice is give yourself one night of feeling sorry for yourself and complain and maybe even have a couple drinks. But when you wake up the following morning that is it! You get up no matter what the situation is and PUSH FWD! Many of my friends didn't get it or understand my philosophy on that concept but it was that my dad taught me growing up.
