I am 62 going on 40. Believe it. I have so much enthusiasm that I have to remind myself to draw down a bit. While in an interview I traveled 350 miles for, the discussion of drug test came up, I agreed with it. The interviewer, while looking over at me in a non lit room as I was filing out a mound of paperwork on the corner of her desk with ALL my information included, proceeded to tell of an applicant that didn't pass his drug screen, and was... see more

It can often feel like you are being passed over for younger candidates when on the job search - especially when you hear that they are no longer interested after submitting information that could show your age.

Here’s what Robert said about it:

None of us are immune to the effects of a changing job market - no matter what kind of experience we have. Just ask Billy, who spent 72 days unemployed before getting an offer:

I am 60 years old. I am a baby boomer with too much education, I made too much money and I had to settle for 30K less than I was making before. I now make only 1/3 of what I made before the recession hit. It amazes me that in 2019 experience and education does not... see more

For the past 35 years, I have also excelled at encouraging high school students to take pride and ownership in and of their thinking and verbal expression, ultimately pushing them to reach for mastery rather than... see more

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a part-time employment program for low-income persons age 55 or over. Program participants work at community and government agencies and are paid the federal or state minimum wage, whichever is higher. They may also receive training and can use their participation as a bridge to other employment positions which are not supported with federal funds.
