I am 55. The only work I’ve been able to get are housekeeping. Which I did for 12 years, self employed. Can’t even get those jobs anymore because the market is flooded. I’ve had interviews at stores like Ross, where I actually worked before, group interviews with 3 or 4 college aged children and I have experience and one hour later got an email saying no thank you. Which means the 25 year old managers hired the 18 year olds. With no experience...
I just got a position with Amazon without an in person interview. I think this is the best thing to happen to ageism in years. Don’t give up, and if you can find a company that will hire you online, go for it! I love Amazon!
