Too old?

I would like to find a part time job since I retired from my position as a social worker at a long term care facility. Do you guys think that at 65 I am too old? Should I just be resigned to retirement or should I try to find something?

Hi Robin Rice retirement is entirely up to you, but you don't have to retire if you aren't ready. I do know that Target offers…

How Self-Reflection Can Help Your Career

You may think of self-reflection as more of a personal pursuit related to overall happiness and wellbeing, but being self-reflective can help you to get (and better keep) your next job.

When you reflect on your career, you can uncover some interesting truths about yourself like...

  • What motivates me?
  • Where do I want my life/career to go?
  • Do I feel satisfied with my life/career so far?
  • What kind of person/employee am I/ do I want to be?

Lost

One month ago, exactly, my lovely wife of 26 years passed in the night. But that's not all I lost. I also was a caregiver for her for almost 3 years Doing In Home Supportive Services. So when she died on June 23rd, I not only lost my wife but I also lost my job. It turns out IHSS does not pay into unemployment so I'm not entitled to collect unemployment. So I'm not only sad, but also broke and penniless. I'm having difficulties finding a job and…

Frustrated too!

I worked at my job for 25 years. I was let go without a good enough reason along with many others. I am 55 years old and was making a great paycheck. I do not have a business degree or any type of college education. However I have more experience at what I do than someone coming out of college but that does not matter. So tired of hunting for a new job and getting very nervous I will lose my home. These big corporations rather pay 3 young people…

Your graduation year...

Has a potential (or existing) employer ever asked you for your graduation year? If so, you are NOT alone. This may seem like a harmless question, but chances are the employer is trying to determine your age. Here are some things you should know and what you can do!

Ageism

I am 55. The only work I’ve been able to get are housekeeping. Which I did for 12 years, self employed. Can’t even get those jobs anymore because the market is flooded. I’ve had interviews at stores like Ross, where I actually worked before, group interviews with 3 or 4 college aged children and I have experience and one hour later got an email saying no thank you. Which means the 25 year old managers hired the 18 year olds. With no experience…

AGE MATTERS

Yes, yes, yes, I do believe age has everything to do with it. I held an Assistant Director position for 14yrs., I could not take the demands and stress, so I quit. Best as worst thing I ever did. I wish I used connections while working to line something up. It took me 2yrs. to finally get a job I like. Try contacting someone you know that may be able to direct you. I think today they want everthing thru emails and text. Like you said you…

I believe we can come together and a accomplish goals even though the chip maybe down but we are still in the game we need to…
