Age-ism?

3 years ago I was laid-off from my employer as we were purchased by another company and there were many others at the purchasing company doing what I do (Senior Staffing Consultant; Recruiter; Talent Acquisition). Overall, I have over 23 years experience doing this type of work across various industries. I was on my last position for 10 years, and 2 1/2 years at that company as a contract Consultant prior to that. I have been applying for…

Should I ask for a raise?

I hope this doesn't seem insensitive because I know most of you are searching for work. Believe me, I was in your shoes not so long ago and I remember the agony and heartache but I need opinions. I can't post to Facebook because I broke my own rules about not friending people at work. So...

I will start by saying that I really love the company I work for and my job, though it was not without some problems early on. I was hired for a position…

Discriminatory Environment

I have been in the car business for over 14 years. I admit 11 of those Years were fair and worth it, but the last job was Discriminatory. They have been training me for Inventory while my job title was Lot Attendant. I did not mind being cross trained, but when the Inventory Manager quit, they put another clueless individual for the job instead of me. I had to train him from scratch, and he just doesn’t learn on doing things on his own…

Age Discrimination? I used to use that as an excuse too.

BE RELEVANT

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…
