I am a fifty year old woman who has been unemployed for just over a year. Although my most recent experience is in the IT industry, I have been unable to interview for IT jobs due to the lack of a degree (which I am working on remedying). Instead, I’ve been trying to return to doing Administrative type work and I can’t get interviews there, either. I would also love to work within Change Management again, if so given the chance.
I also believe there may be some ageism issues as well. At this point, I am now trying for part-time clerical positions at my local college just to get my foot back in the door to the working world, confident that once someone works with me that they will see my potential.
