I got discontinued from my job last year after working for them for 10 years. I am 63 and have been looking for work ever since March 2016. First my unemployment ran out then my savings - now I am on Social Security but it is not enough to live on. I have no insurance and was told I am a Diabetic 3 day after I lost my job. I have been looking for an Accounts Payable job or any office job which is what I did before. I just recently moved to KC,MO because there were no jobs where I lived before. I do not have an established network. Can anyone help me out. I can do just about anything and will forward a resume if you think you can help me.
Hi Diana: I'm sorry to hear about your struggles in finding a job - is your Social Security similar to disability benefits? If not, I would apply for disability right away to help bolster your income, since having diabetes means you qualify for disability. Also, have you been following up on all the applications you’ve submitted? Try calling or emailing employers a few days after you’ve applied. It’s a great way to stand out from the online crowd.
