Age Issues
Hi. I’m in my 50s & I lost my job in March in manufacturing sales. I sold to retail but was let go due to the financial strain the pandemic would have on the company. What I am worried about is my age . I had just landed this Job & was shy a month it being a full year. I did a great job & my boss will tell you that. You couldn’t guess my age, I’m a long distance runner so I have lots of energy & very clear head. My skills are pretty updated. I was pretty depressed after it happened because I worked so hard. I have kept putting off sending resumes because I was scared of being rejected ( I do not know if anyone reading this has felt this way). Who would even think a pandemic of all things would take my new job away. Can you give me any advice and what to put on my resume? I know you change it according to the job deception but I’m really worried about my age. I do not think in any way shape or form I am too old for a job. Anything info on this would be helpful. Thank You
