New member Debbie Cruz raises some pretty serious concerns in her recent post Seeking advice on resume and frank discussion on age !.
"will anyone be interested in hiring me at my rather advanced age?"
Extended lapse in employment to care for ailing parents and/or Loved ones, re-entering the workforce in a new profession at an advanced age, finding work life or manageable work/life balance are a series of concerns affecting job seekers of all ages today.
How do qualified candidates like Debbie attract employer attention and remain competitive in todays impersonal and highly automated employment community?
Your suggestions, comments, and tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks in Advance!
Well, the next time I apply for a no experience job with a minimum highschool diploma, I will not add my Bachelor degree. That makes me disqualified for the job. Once, it was $100,000 per year in Boulder...... I was bloody over qualified. Only a person of lower education was qualified to do the job.
Hi Everyone, If you have a spare moment I am seeking advice on my resume' and employment prospects. May as well start with my biggest concern, my age! I am 67 yrs old. I am about to complete my graduate studies, I have a BA in Sociology and am completing my MA degree in History with a concentration in Public History ( with a 4.0!!) in a couple of months. I am quite concerned as I have not been employed for nearly 25 yrs., I stopped working as a Commercial Property Manager in Austin,Texas to care for my seriously ill parents, following their deaths I began university studies with the help of my husband's VA benefits. My strengths are in research,composition and working with people- my limitations are that due to my husband conditions, total disabled veteran, I need to work from home- I have completed all of my university studies online and been very successful. My questions to you:
- Will anyone be interested in hiring a person of my age?
- Do you think there are valid research positions available for remote workers?
- How should I address my quite obvious lapse in employment on my resume' ? I appreciate you rime in reading this and would be so grateful for any guidance- Debbie Cruz
