Sometimes I feel like I am not going to get another job because I'm 55 yet I do continue to try. I have filled out 4 applications in 2 months, one employer has already stated no go yet have not heard from other 3. I also feel like not trying. Unemployment is still tough here yet I know I have to try. Right now I am trying to find a job close to what I was doing before yet realistically I will have to look at jobs that I may be "over qualified for" which is kind of demeaning and a stressor in itself because lets face I am not a young man anymore. The key I guess is to keep looking if you don't apply at least look.
