We see a lot of comments coming into the platform about challenges that people are having with unemployment benefits. Which makes a lot of sense; there are millions of us that are out of work and overwhelming systems that aren't designed to pay out but rather force you to look for work. So looking at the other piece of the problem, the job search during a pandemic.

What are the challenges you're facing during your job search? What information and help would be most useful to you now for you job search?

It seems that the employers don't believe that I accomplished so much in the military. They don't understand that in the military at an early age people are rotated to each position in each office and can manage multiple millionaire programs per year. This is the equivalent of several positions per year. They increase more responsibilities every year also and you have no choice in becoming a leader. And yes you can still be 20 or 30 years!

Program Manager at Project Support Services Assigned To The United States Marshals Service

I recently turned 63 and have been unemployed since December 31, 2020. I have applied for quite a few jobs and have been interviewed for most of the roles, making it to the last round in most instances. I have felt quite good and confident after each interview; however, the jobs go to women and men in their thirties. I strongly believe I am a victim of ageism in most cases. What can I do to overcome ageism in the job search process?
