I have been unemployed for six months and am having a really bad week I am typically optimistic but my inner cheerleader has abandoned me. I have had my resume reviewed by a career coach and adapt each cover letter and resume to the position I am applying to but no job so far. I gave 150% to my last position but they decided they wanted someone else in my role and just tossed me aside. I am doing all of the right things, networking, LinkedIn profile etc but so far I have not secured a job. I am also applying for part time jobs but no luck there either. I just need support from people in my same position who understands what it is like to be unemployed and over 50. I know I have a lot to contribute and am not useless but sure am feeling that way right now.

@1972Pam I'm so bad at keeping track of those kind s of embellishments/lies, etc...
I agree I don't want to work for a deceitful co but haven't come across too many honest ones LOL
If I do....there always tiny, mom n pop places where you get no hours and no benefits!

I just don't have many job skills that matter. I thinkI'm going to have to bite the bullet and do some training again...ugh I hate office work.
