thinking your too old for a position

Age is a state of mind, if you have the current skill set required for a position , then there is no reason to avoid adding your resume to pot!

You are never too old to work, unless you have savings or you like to depend on somebody for your living. As Clint Eastwood said, do not let the old man in, jajajs

Also change your career plans, nursing, teachers, computer programmers, medical assistants, anything else medical is in demand. The president's plan to pay for 2 years of technical college will soon be in existence and it will be TOTALLY FREE. Take advantage of this upcoming educational program offered soon by President Biden.

Temporary employment agencies DO NOT care how old you are, just that you have experience in whatever you are applying for. Mainly word processing, typists, phone operators, factory workers are all in demand. The are listed in the phone book listings or on your computer. They pay weekly pay and it is a way to get your foot in the door, where you might want to work long term or not go work there again. Just do a good job, as 70 percent of them eventually go permanent and you replace those who are on sick leave, annual leave or an employer is in the position to hire permanently. If they see you will work part time, then you have a much better chance to apply for something once it comes open permanently. Any employer will remember you working temporarily for them, will see what kind of work you did for them, so you can get your foot in the door also with an employer. Some libraries in Columbia, SC offer FREE word processing training in WORD, EXCEL and POWRPOINT programs. You work at your own pace learning it. Check out your local library and see when they offer such programs. Also if you volunteer somewhere, like a hospital, large agency, etc, you can gain experience which does count towards working experience, even if you did not get paid for it. Good luck......................

My state of mind is NOT the issue. It is the state of mind of the hiring manager. They are the ones with the negative view of older workers. My positive state of mind has no effect on the hiring managers negative state of mind, When will people start realizing the fallacy of "The Law of Attraction"!!

@Jacqueline Janis If you want a Job or even really need a Job it's not about what you want. And if the Job Requires someone to be able to Speak Spanish then you Need to be able to Speak the Lamguage Required for the Job. And that means Spanish so that means Taking Classes even if you don't want to.

As I said it's not about what you want.
