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.

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…

Has anyone over age 50, with diverse job experience, looking for part time work, experienced age discrimination in work place? Most jobs go to the younger employees with advancement opportunities. I just want supplemental income at this point. Any advice to ace interview?
