Age Discrimination? I used to use that as an excuse too.


Make new skill sets. Never stop training your self and staying current. Ever.

You can’t. You’re “old”. Without skills? You have ... “experience” something.

Be knowledgeable about what you need to know for the job you want. There’s a laundry list of software, I should know if I want to progress and make more money. So I learn. On my own. I go to Meetup(s) to network and meet others doing the same as me. And when I think…

I’m 71 and I’ve been looking for awhile for a job. And I keep being told they think I’m to old

Gratitude: The Trait That Defines Perspective

Hey Jobcasers,

Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.

Gratitude is perhaps one of the most difficult things to muster up during a rigorous and harrowing experience such as unemployment, homelessness, and similar events, but I would argue that it is perhaps the most important thing to muster up--more than hope, more than tenacity, more than even…

Timely and important post Gage. I think we all naturally tend to focus on the negative emotions associated with being unemployed-…

Your never too old!

Hi. I just want everyone to know that you are never too old to find that perfect job. I just turned 49 a few weeks ago. Last week I started a new job cooking in a soup kitchen. I am the Meals Coordinator and have free reign to make whatever I want. I only see my boss during meals service. No one ever comes to the kitchen and leaves me alone. There is nothing worse, to me, than being micromanaged. I need my autonomy. Anyway, this is the best job…

Is it true??

I have read and been told that once you turn 50 I will have a difficult time finding a job that fits my experience level and education level just because of my age.

I am starting to believe this as I have been searching for months and nothing. I am not sure what to do. I am to young to retire and can not afford to.

Advice? Hopefully so....

I want to tell you what I have learned by first hand experience regarding job hunting... First of all I spent way too many hours combing through emails that I receive daily or more. I applied for many so called job recommendations from every Tom, Dick and Harry job website that I received and fit their qualifications. I felt much accomplishment for applying to 20 to 40 jobs a day. It would open up communication per my home and cell phone…
