I was let go from my previous job in March, had surgery on my shoulder for rotator cuff repair in April. Since being released from medical follow up and therapy I’ve been searching for employment non stop and always make it to final rounds of interviews only to be passed on for other candidates. I have over 18 years experience and have only listed the past 10 years on my resume. I’ve taken off grad years from my resume and it’s strong showing all of my deliverables as well as my team work and leadership skills. Ima at my wits end, money is running out, trying to figure out how to pay all the bills. I’ve registered with temp agencies as well as placement recruiters. Have gotten plenty of response though nothing pans out. I can only assume the interviewers look at my exp and well it’s not hard to see I’m over 50 and that last where it ends. I don’t know what else to do to secure employment. I hear I’m overqualified and tell them I’m looking for balance in my life and not climbing the corporate ladder. Lots of employers aren’t looking at my transferable skill sets. How do you stay motivated when everything seems to be crashing down around you?
