Join us at 1 p.m. ET Thursday for a coronavirus tele-town hall on staying safe in changing times. Find out more.
So I was unemployed before the pandemic so now my job search is more dificult. Any sugguestions ?
I don't have specific suggestions because I am out of work too.
And it isn't just my age that is a barrier to employment.
I have enough education to satisfy most job requirements, not all jobs require Master degrees.
But my salary requirements are healthy and normal.
I need enough to live, to pay for healthcare, my car, home, retirement.
Many employers now, with this pandemic, will use it to clean house.
And wages will remain suppressed.
I think many of us age 50 and over are going to have an enormous time, if what we're looking for is a healthy, experienced level salary.
