I just lost my job at a veterinary hospital company known for hiring primarily 18 to 30 year olds. They are cute, cheap and easy to push aro und. After our last manager quit unexpectedly, tbey promoted a 24 year old tech to be manager. She immediately began targetimg me and found fault with everything I did. She would ignore my suggestions, but introduce them a couple of weeks later as her own. She continued to search for anything she could to say I was incompetent while making ridiculous changes to the long standing system every few days. Long story short she let me go. I was so stressed out by then it was almost a relief.
Since then. I have had 2 great telephone interviews and 2 great Zoom interviews (2 different companies.) One even invited me in to shadow their team for a few hours. I have not heard from either one since. I believe that it has to do with my age. I am 66. I was older than everyone in the bldg .
My confidence is shot and I don't thibk that I will be hired because I am older. zHow do I overcome this?
