Due to the pandemic, I've lost my job. I've worked my entire adult life without a break and in an executive position for the past 20 years. I have outstanding leadership skills. Now I find myself jobless. Although I am in my later 60's, I do not feel that I'm finished yet and want and need to continue to work.
I'm accomplished and my credentials and resume are very impressive and I get some call backs. Through discussions, once we get down to the wire and they figure that I'm "older", the discussions stop. How does a woman executive of a certain age get rehired in this volatile market? My experience is in the architecture/design industry, which has been decimated. I have cast a wide net and I would gladly utilize my skills in transition into another sector. Your opinion is much appreciated!
