Should I go back to work yes or no ?????
I am returning to the employment field. Any constructive criticism on getting references when you have little to no recent work experience.
Just want to post this so some of you don't give up hope. My last day of work was Jan 31, 2016. I am 60 years old, post divorce and shortly after that my latest significant other passed away of cancer,, then 3 months later my mother passed and my then a few months after that my aunt. I have lost evrything I worked for my entire life-busines-home-contentsyou name it. I am now the matriarch of what's let of a family. I have my own health issues from going through everything and was working temp jobs to keep a roof over my head.
I have applied for more than 800 positions. Now the payoff! Offers coming in --I have accepted a position this morning for a late July start date. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Hang in there and don't give up....what I have learned from everything I have gone through is...you must always charter your own ship. No one else can do it for you. Take charge and keep plugging away till something changes. You can do it!
Good luck to all who are still seardhing.
