Receptionist/Hostess

I was Laid Off from my last position 4 yrs ago. Since then have been looking for a job to help supplement my income> I am a Senior Citizen with what I feel is an excellent work ethic. I am dependable & reliable. I know Word, some Quick Books, phone, office machines. I have submitted resumes everywhere but no success. I have even tried WALMART & I was informed I did not pass their assessment test - Really? Guess they don't want anyone with brains & Common Sense

Hi Mary Joan, Welcome to Jobcase! I know it can definitely be difficult to find a new position, especially when they can be looking at your age. Keep going and I know you will find something that will be a great fit! I did do a search in your area for some receptionist jobs, which you can check out here. I hope this helps!

Why is it so hard for someone to find jobs if they are not young, I am 56 and very able to do any job and never given a chance I build diesel engines and no one will give me the time of day, And have many talents in the work force.

I once worked at a US government agency as an EEO Asst. and learned how NOT to ask questions related to age, gender, religious belief, etc. My search for employment over the lat few months have been plentiful and I have received an average of 15 calls a day as a result of my public resume. My problem is that in each call the 3rd question is "how old are you" or "what year did you graduate high school."
What is the answer to that question and /or should I call the Dept of Labor?

Unfortunately you can't do anything about it because it's basically a general question. Anymore before taking any further steps it's no different than doing a WOTC which tells your gender age and so on. Qualification is the key and anymore that doesn't help. I thought outside the box on some of there questions when I've interviewed over the phone stated my age doesn't matter but I'll be happy to let you know know. Good luck with the job hunting

Are you freelancing? If I was in your position I would submit articles to magazines and other news media. Promote yourself as a correspondent? What about a resume or letter writing service? Writing is a dying art. People today don't know how to write like your generation does. Thought about creating greeting cards? Have you tried blogging? Many people are making good livings as citizen journalist. In the digital age a skilled writer has endless possibilities.

Retired. Looking for a few hours a week of work.

I am 62 and have been retired due to add one health problems for awhile. Would love to work a few hours a week or so if given the chance. Looking for something in the Rio Vista shopping center that I can ride my adult sized trike to and from. Was always dependable and a hard worker and very much a team player. Thank you.

Hi Corinne Booker If you have found that you are not hearing back from jobs or landing interviews, the issue might be your resume.

If a company uses what’s called a [applicant tracking system] (https://www.thebalance.com/what-is-an-applicant-tracking-systems-ats-2061926) your resume could be slipping through the cracks.

The ATS is a program that companies use to sort through 1,000’s of resumes to find the best possible ones. If it doesn’t recognize what it needs, your resume will be cast aside and likely NEVER be seen by an actual person at that company.

To avoid being passed over, utilize [keywords] (https://www.jobscan.co/blog/top-resume-keywords-boost-resume/) in your resume. When recruiters search for them, they are looking for certain skills in your resume that match up with what THEY need.

Say for example you are applying for a job as the manager of a hotel restaurant, a recruiter may search for phrases such as “restaurant manager” and “hotel restaurant” or search for the word “hospitality.”

Recruiters are not going to search for words and phrases such as “outgoing” and “hard worker.” This is because keywords highlight your skills, not your traits.

Take some time to make a list of yours and add them to the work experience section of your profile so your resume is noticed. Not sure what skills you should add? Check [these out] (https://www.thebalancecareers.com/list-of-the-best-skills-for-resumes-2062422).

Here are [8 companies hiring] (https://www.jobcase.com/conversations/7e70975b-5775-5592-a21d-8d5e75f572c4) now for the holidays for you to check out!

Best of luck : )
