It's hard

Executive, Operations and was laid off last March. I was employed with my last company for 22 years before they eliminated my position.
It's hard out here. I have nothing but respect for everyone going through this struggle. I actually had a company ask me (third interview) to create a 15 minute presentation on what I believed they needed to work on. I did this, and they even said I nailed it and yet they went with an internal candidate.
I have…

Same here I’m thankful for the job I have but I want a better one I quit my last job and they won’t hire me back I was there14…

Really over my employer

I have applied for 18 positions at my employer and I have not received any promotions.Long story short, if you are not in the clique of the good o’l boys, you will not get promoted. Doesn’t matter if you are qualified and have an education. My employer goes as far as changing the qualifications to get their buddy in that position. Bottom line, I AM DONE WITH THE GOOD O’L BOYS MENTALITY.

possible upcoming situation

one thing that seems to be happening to companies is that they need workers and the ones who want to work are to old meanwhile the workers that companies want [the younger ones] don't want to start at the bottom - unless there is a quick promotion. the big question to ask about this is will there be a day when companies can't find workers due to this cycle.

I think it depends on the profession and also the employer Roy Veteto but you're right in that the cycle does exist in many cases…
