Hello Community, I've really tried to keep an open eye on issues around ageism, especially since I"m no spring chicken myself, and since I was made aware of the trend via this group. In my efforts, I've not only spoken with co-workers who hire but also 40+ friends about their job hunt challenges. I wanted to provide some perspectives, I think will be helpful.

Before I do, I want to say that although potential solutions can be on us, that... see more

For anyone struggling to find a job, Amazon can be the answer as it has a number of opportunities that don't require an interview or a resume. While getting the job is easy, it is no secret that the work itself can be very demanding. With that said, building a work history with a well-known company like Amazon can unlock many opportunities in the future.

I also was unexpectedly let go from my job 3 months ago after 15 years. At 61 I am finding the job market pretty tough. I have numerous resumes out and have had a couple interviews but no callbacks yet. The thing I have found to get through and keep the bills paid is a food delivery service. I won't mention names but there are several available. The hiring process is very quick and the work is pretty easy. If you don't mind driving, this can... see more

Uber, Uber eats, Lyft, Roadie, Shipt, Instacart, worked 2/3 PT jobs, these are a few things I do until something more in my field of work happens, sometimes having some $ is better than none and it relieves the pressure to some degree and helps you not to be frustrated with the process.

Trucking has changed so much since I retired back in 2003. The quality of drivers are not as courteous and not as professional as before.The reason is the Electronic logs and the rate of pay have been reduced. The amount of training required to obtain a CDL has dropped. I would to get back on the road but the body say I’m too old.

Hello All,
I would like to revise my current resume to include most if not all nine temporary positions held from 2 months to 21 months. Should I not mention my 2 mos. 2x of loading delivery trucks, because that is not my forte? Ever since 2015 lay off of a decade of working for same employer in administrative, office assistant and customer service, then and thereafter, most of the temporary positions were interesting and gainful experience. I... see more
