I hate you...that’s how I feel about it. You discriminate against elder computer illiterate, technologically challenged, digitally disabled people like me (who has every door closed against him/her) and will never get a job again, because he/she is elder, can’t get on line or any such assistance . It’s like being swept under the rug like a cockroach. I hate you all of your perfect millennial, utopia, digitalized I-phone-in-your-eye balls generation , that is everything as intolerant and racist as prior generations. Where are my civic, civil , human, and United Nations rights. Silenced,

Hi Bart,

I definitely understand how you and others like you might feel excluded by the new online job seeking systems that have become so common today. Though these systems were ultimately designed to be more convenient to job seekers and employers, you’re very right to mention that, depending on your level of comfort with using this technology, online job seeking systems may make it much more difficult instead.

I really thank you for your honesty about how this makes you feel. I’d like to personally provide you with some information that may make using technology less stressful for you. I did a bit of research and found this excellent (and free) resource for you called Learn My Way. This website offers courses on every aspect of how to use computers and the internet so you can become more savvy and feel more confident when you look for jobs. You can click the link here to be directed to their website.

You may also be familiar with the AARP, who also have a great website dedicated to senior relevant topics and advocacy. Since this is a subject you are passionate about, I would recommend you check out their website by clicking the link here.

I really hope these resources can provide you with the skills you need to feel welcomed into the internet age, rather than excluded by it. Jobcase welcomes and includes people of all types and skill levels and we’re always happy to help and provide for our members.

If you are in need of further assistance, please let me know!

Best, Laila

Oh, but wait there is still a need for real human interaction. What may I ask are your special skills.
