Why there is no actual advice about the valid postings that I have read from AARP staff? People 50 and older are facing severe discrimination in the US needless to say to oversea as well. How does AARP protect us and help us to join back the job market and getting paid a fair salary not take or leave it salary? Please respond.

I'm having the same problem.  Been out of work for over three months since being laid off after a bank buy out.  Nothing pans out.  Spoke with a woman at unemployment office who agreed age discrimination is real but no way to prove it.

Job hunt challenges/how to downsize resume/job?

Message 15 of 15

56 yrs old. Been out of work for a year now. Several hundred applications sent as well as other out reaches. Resume is getting traction but have interviewed with close to 40 companies. 30 have had multiples interviews and finalist at several. The jobs are slightly below levels where I had been and even adjusting sal requirements doesnt seem to get it aacross the line. Seems after a face to face or video interview things change. I have never had this type challenge before - even after downsizings. Any thoughts or suggestions on the interview/interactions? I've gotten feedback and convos wiht hring managers post rejection but it's the always just short, would have hired both... willing and looking to relocate and have stated that dont need relo help.

 

Now looking to just get any job (not in my field - fairly specialized) and to generate some amount of income/healthcare. How do I amend my resume to make it employer friendly and not have an employers concerned I am just bridging or am way over-qualified?
