MESSAGE TO THE BABY BOOMERS

Just when we feel the world has no more use for us because our age has finally caught up to us. Then we begin to feel frustrated, and that we are being treated unfairly. Prospective employers don't seem to want to hire us not even give us a chance. Its become apparent they think we are to old, but you know within yourself, and with every fiber of your being that you are still extremely viable. What exactly should we Seniors do that are not…

Yes, you can be hired at 58 (or any age)!...

I thought my fellow Jobcasers would be encouraged reading this story:

A few weeks ago, I received an email as I was found through an online search to see if I would be interested in a newly created position. I did a quick check of the organization, was impressed and replied back.

In turn, I received a reply, had a phone screen, was asked to go in for a first interview, a second interview and then a third interview. I met with 8 people total. A…

What’s so wrong about hiring a senior?

We know dedication to work. I don’t whine about working nights and weekends. My age should not have anything to do with it if I can do the job!!!!

The future of Irving’s senior citizens

Seniors in Irving, TX need jobs, not seminars, to ensure a secure foundation.
Emma West, an Irving resident, asked city council members. “Why is there so much focus placed on financial coaching seminars and workshops,” “The number one need is jobs. That will help seniors so that they will not consistently need assistance, food, and shelter.”

West said. “One of the job programs she attended was at Irving Cares called Invest In Yourself.”

  • West…

So true! And I, for one, have more natural energy then my own sons who are 42 and, 36. They themselves tell me constantly.

Older worker? Become "age-neutral" in your thinking!

If you are an unemployed older adult, it's easy to assume ageism or age discrimination when you're turned down for jobs time after time. Yes age discrimination does exist but it is not the barrier EVERY time. Don't let a presumption of they'll think I'm too old hold you back. And don't let it cloud your thinking and your analysis of what you can improve in order to become a more desirable candidate. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/should-age-neutr

I think once you get it into your head that you can't do something and that others will treat you differently that is exactly how…

Feeling very let down

I got excited about something called ticket to work for disabled people and seniors. I applied for it and later went to a potluck lunch with someone and the higher-ups asked me to fill out an application so I could be part of their team. It involves driving and in the past I hadn't paid much attention to a driving score. Doing the last four or five years I lost my dad and my husband and during those times I received tickets during each occasion…

Hi Teresa McNease I am so sorry for your losses. Perhaps you could go to court to have one of the driving offenses removed. In…
