I don't want to sound like or be a pessimist, but I haven't gone on an interview in the 5 months I've been looking for a job since my layoff. I had an interview scheduled a few weeks ago......I was all excited, but they called the evening before the interview and said they hired someone who just interviewed.
I DO believe my age has a lot to do with it. It is obvious from my resume, even though I tried to "hide" it that I am near retirement age. I don't think companies want to hire a senior who won't be in the company for long.
I am staying optimistic...the RIGHT job is out there, but I do get discouraged occasionally.
Life is Good.
I don't have a runner's body, but I have a runner's heart - and that is all you need.
