I too am job seeking and feel ignored by many due to my age. I am 47.
I have sent off many, many applications and never hear back and have not had an interview for ages.
Like you, I am a hard worker with many years of experience. I don’t want full-time work but would love a couple days a week to help keep my family afloat in this economy.
Prospective employers; please don’t overlook us – the older ones.
We still have a lot to give, if given the chance.
