I’m too old...

Hello everyone,

I guess I’m too old for the positions I’m applying for or could it be that I have Masters degree and that intimidating bug bites them? I’ll find something very rewarding

As I was walking back to the trailer with her she made a comment You know as you age your body slows down and you can not walk as fast as you used too . I am 55 years old

Sick of interviews

Has anyone had this problem. You nail the interview but, your too old to get hired. I am qualified for positions but, I have been on 5 interviews. Out of the 5 interviews, three of the interviewees were 20 years younger. I am 49, I didn't think that is too old, but, if your manager is going to be in her 30's , she might be intimidated. Or maybe I am overqualified. Praying hard. Anyone else experience this???

I agree, the entire system is broken. Might as well write a resume on a handkerchief or typewriter like what our ancestors would…

Age Discrimination

Are there many of you out there that feel as though you've been discriminated against because of age? I am getting the impression that it is happening to me. I have qualifications and have applied for several jobs that are in my field, but no one seems to be interested except marketing firms...which I have no interest in. When I review the marketing firms' websites, they always have people who are young and physically fit. Not someone like…

Too Old to Hire

I thought I had it in the bag. Education? Check. Experience? Check. Great Interview? Check. Offer? Nope. It's hard for a 66 year old. Believe it.
