It's best to love your job than to hate your job because you will make the most of it because you enjoy/love your job you're going to do whatever it may be to the best of your ability and feel good about doing it while you do it. Valerie Black

There's the saying you can't teach an old dog new tricks. I'm curious if anybody has surprised themselves by picking up a new skill / hobby as an adult.
Mine was typing. I am still not all that great. I just advanced with time and now I do not use just two fingers to type. I also can navigate a bit better on the computer. Again, I am no pro but better than I started.
I taught myself how to tie a bow tie. Not exactly a life skill but something that I wanted to learn how to do for my own personal style.
After working retail and now in the bartending and waitressing field, I realize I have untapped talent with regards to my people skills. I have received job offers recently on the spot, most are sales . Looking for more options regarding hotel management or party planning. My gift of gab and ability to multi task are an asset.
I was let go from my previous job in March, had surgery on my shoulder for rotator cuff repair in April. Since being released from medical follow up and therapy I’ve been searching for employment non stop and always make it to final rounds of interviews only to be passed on for other candidates. I have over 18 years experience and have only listed the past 10 years on my resume. I’ve taken off grad years from my resume and it’s strong showing all of my deliverables as well as my team work and leadership skills. Ima at my wits end, money is running out, trying to figure out how to pay all the bills. I’ve registered with temp agencies as well as placement recruiters. Have gotten plenty of response though nothing pans out. I can only assume the interviewers look at my exp and well it’s not hard to see I’m over 50 and that last where it ends. I don’t know what else to do to secure employment. I hear I’m overqualified and tell them I’m looking for balance in my life and not climbing the corporate ladder. Lots of employers aren’t looking at my transferable skill sets. How do you stay motivated when everything seems to be crashing down around you?
