The truth is I ideally know more than the Managements think.
You go in and fill out the application and answer the work experience.
The time spent with companies and why did you leave.
But no manager will understand, what you could bring to there company.
If all my year's of service don't matter why do they ask?
Older employees bring so much more, but experience can't get you to stay with them.
Listing that experience could help or hinder you.

Sitting here reading an article in the AARP Bulletin on, “Ageism.” The article has cleared my mind on why I haven’t being hired after so many interviews. Employers look at your age and think you can’t preform as good as a young person. Think about it, we won’t call out sick from partying all night, we won’t job hop, we are eager to learn and energetic. I have at least 15 more years left on a career and not hiring me is their loss not mines

Its sad how jobs go about things now, things were so much easier back in the days! Just keep going, dont stop here... see more
