At 62 ,I understand the age thing all to well. I’m working a job that I like until management starts making it difficult to do your job effectively. Or their obvious favoritism shuts the rest of out of a position that opens up. I have been on a few interviews, attempting to better my situation but, no luck. The second I make eye contact you can tell they aren’t interested. But you go through the motions anyway. Can’t retire. I’m paying student... see more
I recently asked six different recruiters and hiring managers to tell me what the biggest mistake applicants make during the interview process is. If they repeated a mistake given by the preceding recruiter/hiring manager, I asked them to give me a different mistake.
Here are the six mistakes that could end an interview, or lead an applicant to not get a second interview/job offer...

But the job was very labor intensive & I developed Carpal Tunnel because of the work. (I... see more

I lost my job July 2015 and being over 50 have not been able to find a job since. I’m pretty sure that I was blacklisted by my last employer. My question is this: why when a person is obviously at their lowest with very little money does the bank decide to raise the interest rate on my credit card and lower the credit limit? Even though I’ve never missed a payment or made a payment late Why does my car insurance feel the need to base my car... see more
I have applied to many businesses all over my city. I have been told multiple times that I am hired at my interviews and then after my background check comes back I am dismissed due to my criminal record which has nothing whatsoever to do with any position I have applied and been interviewed for. I am on parole and having done my incarceration time I am just wanting to start my life over and move on but nobody is willing to let me or even give me... see more

I have been searching for a new job since the beginning of June. I have over 12 years in administrative experience. I am getting interviews but then get ghosted. Even by staffing agencies. One job stated that they went with another applicant as they live closer to the business. A staffing agency emailed me and said they would have to dig deeper to find something appropriate for me. I've had only 2 jobs in the past 13 years. Due to hard work &... see more
