As I have been out of work since Sept 2016, I've been trying on a daily basis to find a position in my field of recruiting for staffing agencies. In every imaginable way,I've been looking, but so far no luck. I've also, on a daily basis looked in other fields, but that hasn't worked out as well. I have a real passion and love for recruiting in the light industrial field because more than not, you are helping non skilled people find work and those that are having a hard time find work for many reasons. Students, people with criminal records, those looking for a 2nd job, etc,etc. It is quite a rewarding feeling when you can help someone get back on their feet and find employment. I still have that emence passion. It is so frustrating not being able to find any sort of employment , let alone in recruiting. I guess 18 years experience doesn't count for much. I'm not giving up and I know NYC is a tough market, but where does a 57 year old go to get help in returning to his passion, his field?
