Sorry about your loss, I went thru that this past September but have adjusted some things. At 61 I'm not in the top rung when they go to hire, they won't say it in so many words but I am to old for most of them to consider me.

Age...ain't it great. They want our knowledge and experience but are scared of the "health" issues. They never ask about your age but all they have to do is look at when you graduated on the resume.

Good luck Rob......hope you find something soon.

Rob-
Sorry to hear about your job. Best of luck with your search for a new one, with Racine's unemployment over 10% it's not gonna be easy.:( I'll let you know if I hear of anything...

Never put graduation date(s) on resumes and don't go back more than 15 years on job experience unless it's STRONGLY related to the position you're applying for. My high school and college grad dates are >25 years apart, which one would an employer put more weight on?

Sorry for the bad news, it's really tough out there. I'm hunkered down and am doing what I do, we're so busy that we're hiring another admin person. Good typing, database, and phone skills anyone?

This really sucks Rob, we talked about this last night over a few Coronas, and some very special tequila got for me by one of my very best brothers here. I dont remember ever seeing things so crappy. 2008 was definatly the worst year my wife and I ever had. I think if she would have been in school one more week even we would have been lossing everything. It is still bad but we are atleast holding are own right now, and even maybe by next week strating to chip away at some more crap we need to pay.

Well that really sucks, I hope things will work out for you.

I work at a Toyota auto dealership. I work in service so even though things have slowed down a lot, I'm still working. Dont know if you can translate your past work history to another career but keep the faith.
