Over 50 and You Can’t Find a Job?
Still, I’m sure you have heard well-meaning musketeers and family members say,” you are too old to find a job” If you’re over 50 and are job stalking. What if you noway heard that you were too old? Would that change the way you went about chancing a source of income?
I heard those statements but noway believed them. I looked at the number of businesses there are in this country and the chance of people that are always leaving their jobs. I didn’t let the fact that 000 masterminds were out of work in my area. I knew I could find a job at 50, and I did. I also knew I could find a job at the age of 61, and I did for further plutocrat than I was making ahead( well, I confess, I really did not suppose about how old I was. I just wanted a job).
So what makes me so different from anyone differently? I guess it’s the fact that I would not accept the fact that I would not be suitable to find a job for the pay that I wanted. I’m not saying the job popped up incontinently. I’m saying that perseverance, creative job shopping, and clarity of what I was looking for brought me the perfect position to me.
The first time I was ever laid off, I was 50 times old. The trauma of being rejected lasted a long time( 5 times). It isn’t easy to accept that the” if” isn’t particular( it sure felt particular!). Fortunately, my hubby was working, and we were suitable to get along on the reduced income. It’s incredible how important going to labor costs is. We still live our life the way we always did, with many luxuries being pushed away.
It took me nine months to find a job. I was not in too crucial of a hurry as I was subconsciously hysterical about being burned again. Once you have been through a layoff, it’s tough putting yourself in that position again. But time does heal, and life goes on.
There was a bright side to the whole experience, and that was that I entered training for an entirely new skill that I would no way have done without being forced into it by being laid- off. That training changed the path of my life permanently.
This is how I made the stylish out of the nine months while I was out of work.
I donated to work with a group of masterminds in an incubator for entrepreneurs. I’m a mastermind, an organizer, and a womanish. ( I had a mama hen complex) It sounded to me that a lot of the masterminds that had been laid off during that period of time had great ideas and just didn’t know how to move forward to take them to request. I decided to grease their trip because I had possessed several businesses up to this point.
Trying to organize masterminds is like trying to collect turtles. They don’t move. They get lost in detail and veritably infrequently go beyond the idea. There were a lot of entitlement plutocrats available in that time frame for technological invention. It sounded like a great idea to try and get a group together and introduce ourselves.
The organization didn’t work relatively, but there was a downside to this experience. I was constantly uniting with the folks at the county-employment center and got to know them veritably well. It was these connections that led to the training and new job.
I took advantage of all the training that I could. I explored new areas and did a lot of allowing about what I wanted to do next. Again I was networking and forming connections with everyone I could. I knew the stylish way to get a job was to see a lot of people. Referrals really work.
3 Learned About Me
Veritably infrequently, we get the time to consider who we’re and what we want to do with our lives. I had been through the everyday trials and agonies with life in general, but being laid-off successes you to the core of your being. All the confidence of who you allowed
you were( I allowed
I was the stylish thing since sliced chuck
) and your feeling of tone- worth vanishing overnight. This is incredibly delicate if you have a family depending on you for food and a roof over their head. The pride really hates to be stomped on, and that’s exactly how it felt.
4 Wrote My Perfect Job Description
I spent a lot of time deciding what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I really enjoy problem-working and gathering data, so I knew I was still a mastermind, just not sure what kind presently. I was a process mastermind for a door clump plant, and I, well enough, decided no further manufacturing for me, but that’s where all my experience was, and it didn’t do to me that perhaps the chops I used for manufacturing engineering would transfer into another area. I love talking with people and participating in ideas which isn’t a typical engineering tendency.
5 Went to the Job Counselor
I worked with the Job Counselor to tie down the effects I loved to do and brainstormed what druthers
were available to me. Fortunately, I had a counselor that allowed
outside the box. She set up training for me in a field that was pretty new at that time, Quality Auditing. Hey, problem working, talking, participating ideas, what further could I ask for? So I took the class. It was five days, and I had to pass a test. Giggle! I was on legs and needles for a week. I was so agitated when I set up out I gave the class that I danced with the canine. It was at that time that I knew I would get a job, and I would love it.
One month after I passed the test, the job counselor gave me a business card from a company in Houston that hired quality adjudicators. I lived in Tucson, Arizona, at the time, and for whatever reason, I knew I had to call the company. One month latterly, I was working in Houston and exchanging back and forth to Tucson every other weekend. Taking that job set the stage for my getting a job when I was 61. But that’s another story.
The intent of this composition is to give someone a stopgap to take action and press on. Whatever you do, do it with excitement. If you’re depressed, you won’t see the openings that you’re passing up every day. Be thankful for what you have a moment. Focus on what you really want to do and start making new musketeers. They will help you find that particular job that you have written down.
Good luck in your pursuit of the coming great adventure in your life. You can find a job if you choose. However, you will not, If you decide you can not find a job.
