I don't think it has anything to do with your age....the company I work for just hired 2 women both over the age of 55. Maybe it's your computer skills..... make sure they are up to date. I am 53, and we didn't have the advantage of computers in school

Sorry for my absence, but I've been deep into college studies since Fall of 2019. I do have an associate degree, from DeVry nonetheless. This one, alas, was heavy in electronics and too light in computer technology. Therefore, I went to Cuyamaca College to earn Associate of Science in Computer and Information Science - Networks, Security, and Systems Administration - Enterprise Business Administration Emphasis. Knowing that an associate degree wouldn't be enough for growth, I added the California State University General Education Breadth to my curriculum. This way, I'm completing all lower-level general education requirements at community college prices. And being that I'm my own secretary, I'm completing a Certificate of Specialization in Business Office Technology - Office Software Specialist - Level II. How about them apples? My goal after graduating from Cuyamaca is to enroll at National University for a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity - Computer Forensics. Thank you all, and hope to not be remiss.

Eighteen years ago I was in a bad place. I had issues with drugs but alcohol. Since then, I have gone to rehab, changed my habits, and eventually got my teaching certificate. The problem is that some schools, when they do a background check, see my 2005 arrest. It is a charge of DUI with a child. My son was not hurt; we have a wonderful relationship. However, I can’t find many schools that will give me another chance.

I have tried to rebuild my life. I felt so horrible about that incident that I never drove again. I Uber or carpool. At what point will I be allowed to use my sobriety and education? I have paid my dues in every single way. Sometimes I am so depressed I can’t handle it. I have a Master’s and a Bachelors, and my state certificate was awarded to me After my brush with the law. So Texas is fine sponsoring me as a teacher. Why can’t any one else give me some latitude?

I have 20 plus years coaching women Basketball but the only thing holding me back is I do not have a degree. But then my age IS another reason they do not hire me. And Coaching at Saint Joans was the best time i had in Coaching.
