The older you are regardless of your experience vaccination status and education they want to low ball you. My advice if you still working and considered middle or upper middle income stay where you at or just retire. I am not ready to retire but I will never work for half of what I am making. My job was not one of remote but physical presence required. #advice #ageism

Difficulties of being hired when your older.

I've been trying to find a job for a year now, but I've not been hired. Time and again I'm turned down or my attempts go unanswered. I've been a teacher for 17 years, and in the past I never had any problems getting a job. I'm in my 60s now and suddenly I find myself unhireable. There is not supposed to be discrimination, but despite the laws, employers unspokenly engage in discrimination all the time. In the meantime, my skills and experience are being wasted this indifference.

Ive never had a problem getting work

I cant cry about work...I'm 60 and I have work since I was 13...and I never had a problem with getting a job. I've been an electrician CV fan and maintenance tech since I came out of the army in 82...and I've worked since then. I've lived all over PA and worked in PA Ohio Maryland Va WV NY and NJ. And nobody has ever said anything about my age once and Ivalwaysworked and made good money.

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!

Why can't I find a job after retirement? Does it have anything to do with not searching for one?

I am happily retired now after having worked for 30 years with the city. It's been 7 years now without work. Why can't I find a job since retirement? Is it because I'm not looking for one? #advice

Too Old to Get a Job!!!!

After years of looking for a job I've finally decided I think I need to give up. I apply and it's like my application goes into the ozone never to be seen again, I never get the courtesy of a response, even if it would be 'your too old' (which I know they cannot tell you if that is the reason). Any other older job seekers feel this way?? You know the old saying 'misery loves company'.

Check with your state unemployment office. They should have assistance for you to find jobs compatible with your skills, and classes you can take to upgrade skills or go in a new direction. In Texas it is Texas Workforce.
