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
I have been retired but now need some extra money for some extra bills
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?
I was wondering how hard it is to find a job at age 61
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.
