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

Great Inspiration!! Thanks!!

'Tips from Todd'- How do I prepare for a face to face interview?

Hello Jobcasers! Ok, let's talk about what we all want- the face to face interview!

I will walk you through how I have 'prepped' candidates for 20 years fo a f2f interview. Please forgive any misspelling etc.. I'm a Recruiter, not a writer. Second, join my group! Ask a Senior Recruiter anything! No question is dumb and I answer all questions. I'm not seeking a job- I am seeking to give back and help! Try me.

So, you are going to your f2f (face…

Im not too old, yet.

I'm only 62. Not in the grave yet !!
Have put my application out all over this area. I'm trying to keep close enough to where I live so I don't have to drive too far. Only looking for part time. Always loved all the people I've met where ever I've worked through the years. But....its been a long wait so far. I look around and see alot of younger people working , I'm proud they are but don't forget we older citizen's have a lot to give yet .

I'm 63 and have exactly the same problem been looking for a real job since 2013, all I could find was contract engineer, I would…

Age and Relocating

I have been seeking a job as I am also doing freelancing work. I spoke to a cousin who I had not spoken to for a few years. He was so happy in Florida and he encouraged me to just take a look at job market there. I come to find that there are many more opportunities and am thinking to relocate for a few years if I can find a job. Apparently Florida attracts retires and companies in Florida are not so quick to dismiss the idea of hiring older…

Bus times & age

I live in the burbs of Chicago and am seeking employment. Here's the issue, I don't have a car and everything that would be a good for for me is too far away by bus. One position I know I would have been perfect for is 32 minutes away by car, BUT 6 1/2 hours away by bus/train/bus and walking, another position would have me leaving my house at 8:45pm to get there by 7:15am, I mean what the hell, when would I sleep, or even eat!! Please don't…

Found work after a lot of prayers

I just started a new position last week. I had been looking for work for 6 months. I didn't have a lot of faith in finding a new one, but I did. I am 73 years old and have been a bankruptcy Paralegal for close to 30 years. I am working for a creditor now instead of debtors in their legal/bankruptcy department. For all of you out there looking, don't give of hope. Like I said, I am 73 years old and got a high paying fantastic job. Good luck…
