I have been actively searching for a new position. Not that I do not love what do, but the nightclub industry is easier when you’re young. I have ran a very successful nightclub for 10+ years and have loads of experience. BUT……I ca not find a job. Where are the jobs in the Dallas area?! #careerchange #advice

I currently work for Geek Squad (i know…a joke of a job) but I was trying to use it as a stepping stone to a higher paying opportunity. I currently make $15/hr as a Consultation Agent (which is just a fancy way of saying Secretary) I basically teach people how to use their devices, basic troubleshooting and problem solving. I just feel like there has to be something better!!! What would I need to jump the fence into maybe a Help Desk or An IT job?? Degree? Certification? Just Experience?? Any answers are appreciated!! 🥰 #jobsearch #careerchange #motivation #JobChange

Question

During my divorce, and after a 44 year spot free record, I now carry a couple of MD charges on my background that will be expunged in 3 years. With out having a vehicle at the moment, I have been looking for WFH opportunities with-in the medical community that I have been familiar with for the last 20+ years. I realize that may no longer be an option for me at this time, which may just be what forces me into another industry. I am always willing to learn new things and looking for a place where I can put in to use the 20+ years of customer service I also have under my belt. Would appreciate any information!! Thanks in advance. #jobsearch #advice #healthcare #careerchange #interview

I have, for the first time, continually been told I was "too experienced" for positions where I met all of the qualifications and was very interested. No matter how well I may do in the few Interviews I receive, the strength of my references, testimonial letters, resume or how relevant the portfolio exemplifying my experience may be, this is an ongoing challenge. As a woman over 40, I have been reading this is very common. Even if HR asks me about salary or 'title' allocated to the role, and I assure them that I am fine taking less than I have previously earned and am not concerned with 'titles' only the role and company itself, I am left back where I started, nowhere. Some people have told me that, despite my willingness to take a pay cut, some companies are required to pay a certain salary that aligns with the level of the person they hire, making my age and experience a financial liability. If that is the case, that limits the range of positions I could even hope of procuring. I am unsure how to diminish my experience, go back in time on my age or undo being a woman or what else I can proactively do to allay any of these obstacles and procure roles I am more than capable of performing. Has anyone else faced this and, if so, can they offer any advice as to what my options may be? I have hired multiple Job and Life 'Coaches', had experts redo my LinkedIn, Resume, Cover Letter and assist in making my Portfolio look beautiful, yet even these actions have had no impact in my ability to change the inevitable outcome. Thank you for any suggestions! #jobsearch #advice #women #careerchange

I am a former educator with a Masters from the University of Virginia. I am looking for a career/company that will benefit from my experience as an educator of 17 years and a hotel and retail store manager prior to that. I am also looking for a company that participates in the Virginia Retirement System (VRS). #jobsearch #advice #transitioningteacher #careerchange
