I sometimes get a call to come in for a interview and once I get done with it they don't even try to contact me back to let me know if I got hired or not, it is disappointing waiting to hear something back.
Being Over 50 can land you a job depends on what type of jobs you're applying. I got hired 1 week ago.
Hired at 73. United Healthcare hired me at 73 years old. And they are hiring now. I work from home, 40 hours a week. The job ain’t easy but they don’t discriminate because of age.
I was recently told by my employer I needed to take a 2 month medical leave. I developed some health issues preventing me from being fast enough. I did not agree nor did I fill out FMLA or medical leave papers. They also hired a new candidate. I was told I could return in 2 months. I applied for unemployment. Been denied. Did I terminate myself by not filing out medical leave papers? They did not have any for me.
Depressed...If there are so many job openings then why are highly qualified people having a difficult time getting hired? Either the companies are running old postings that haven't been taken down. Or they are looking for a God like entity to fill these positions. What gives?
After a month, it feels like I don’t have time for anything at all whatsoever. I try to find time for friends, family, sports etc. and I'm too tired by the time I get home.
Need some #advice - should I look for a closer job?
I stopped working in 2018 after my children's father passed away in front of them. They needed me at home instead of working and I was lucky enough financially to be able to do that. I took a part time job for about 6 months, just to get out of the house while they were at school, then Covid hit and I haven't worked since April 2020! I have continued to put in applications for jobs I was interested in but have not been able to even get an interview. I'm assuming bc of the large gap in my work history. I said all that to say, I luckily was hired full time yesterday for a work from home position making $19/hr with 208 hrs PTO!!!! If you haven't been able to find a job... don't give up. Your time is coming. #workfromhome #jobsearch
