I have lived in NC for a month and a half now, I have had no success with getting a job. Although I do have a small monthly income from my early retirement from my job. Less than 1000 dollars though, I have also taken custody of my 2 grand daughters. So you know my income is not sufficient. I have been to some interviews but has gotten no response back from anyone. I seriously think there is a lot of age discrimination going on here. But I just... see more

Things don't always go as planned especially when it's a big day! My car started overheating the night before the interview. No way was i going to cancel an #interview as those are few and far between for me. I checked google maps and saw the location is 9 miles away. Luckily for me i still had a bicycle in the garage. I brought a few bottles of water and my interview clothes in a bag so they would not get sweaty. I found a bathroom a couple... see more

Well, last March 7th I was called into Human Resources in which I was retired. I had worked at this hospital for almost 15 years. I was 63 at that time. My boss retired after 40 years service, and was replaced by Dennis the former director of our respiratory department. Also, a couple other co-workers retired and this was very depressing to me. I usually handle change well but the new boss was somewhat difficult. When one employee wanted to quit... see more

At 62 ,I understand the age thing all to well. I’m working a job that I like until management starts making it difficult to do your job effectively. Or their obvious favoritism shuts the rest of out of a position that opens up. I have been on a few interviews, attempting to better my situation but, no luck. The second I make eye contact you can tell they aren’t interested. But you go through the motions anyway. Can’t retire. I’m paying student... see more
