Make new skill sets. Never stop training your self and staying current. Ever.
You can’t. You’re “old”. Without skills? You have ... “experience”...in 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…
Meet Nailah and Martin!
Two different people who truly love what they do, which is driving a truck.
Sometimes in life, you need to think outside of the box.
When a friend suggested that Nailah attend truck driving school she stood in front of her in high heels and a dress and thought NO way was this for her. Today she happily says, “I am in a place where I don’t have to want for anything. I am happy. I don’t have bill collectors calling me…
700 resumes later and still Mo full time work. At age 48, tell me, am I just being bypassed because I'm pleasingly plump and 48 years old? Doesn't matter the years of experience now..this is crazy..so I put myself back into school taking a Human Resource course. Needless to say one test took 45 minutes for me to pass! Lollol. Anyone else out there experiencing the same thing? Restless in MD...
I want to just say, agism is real. Before I turned 40, I could apply for a position and immediately get a response. I have over 15 years in customer service experience alone in a variety of fields. All of my experience translates to any of the positions I’ve applied to. When I do get calls to interview, the recruiter seems eager to get me in to speak to me, (the few jobs that don’t find a way to figure out how old you are right away; some even…
AARP now offers a bit of resume advice and professional writing service to help baby boomers feel more comfortable applying and interviewing for new jobs.
- Writing a resume can be difficult for everyone, but for those 50 years of age or older, it can be even more difficult. Maybe they've been out of the workforce for some time, or they haven't been able to keep up with the latest processes and technologies.
Hi all, my name is Allana Akhtar and I'm a reporter at Business Insider.
I just published a report on how ageism, not a skills gap, is the biggest barrier to keeping older adults from high-paying work. (& I even got some help from Jobcase CEO Fred Goff).
I'd love to hear your thoughts. Here's the story: https://www.businessinsider.com/retraining-doesnt-help-older-workers-find-jobs-because-of-ageism-2019-5
Over 40? Over 50? Do you sense that your job is insecure? Or have you lost your job? You may think
age discrimination -- but is it your age? Or is it actually that you've lost touch with your industry -- and with your co-workers? Are you keeping up with technology? Or have you become complacent? Have you stopped taking care of yourself and your appearance? Did you start taking your job for granted only to discover nothing is a
I had an interview at Green Valley Ranch and casino for a promotional job. All the ladies in that position are up in years.and I thought I'd fit right in. I never heard from them so in the meantime I applied for other positions at different casino's . They asked me when.I graduated and I said 1947. They immediately said
thank you for your time and hung up. Does that tell you something? There is still discrimination in the working force…
I have been on 8 interviews and no job offers! I have an impressive resume but they always choose another applicant. I think I will commute to another State where jobs are plentiful. There is one problem, I aim over 50 yrs old but look under. What should I do? I really need a job!

We are assets and we will be an asset to any company.
After losing my position of 15 years at 53 years old, I found the job market tough. The search was so tough that I started to doubt my own worth. Back in the day, you were able to market yourself face to face. The process now is very different. I have learned a lot since starting my job search in December.
