im 45 years old, with a job that pays minimum wage
i owe about 40,000 not including student loan(another 18,000)
made a mistake going back to school and getting a loan after getting laid off
i send about 10 resumes everyday ( 500+ so far)
looking to get a part time or another full time job to make ends meet..any will do
i can't declare bankruptcy we might lose our house ( went to financial councilor )
i can't get a loan to pay off debts coz of low income ( went to bank/others )
i live with my mom my aunt my sister who scrape by daily
im depressed everyday
death seems to be a good way out but then who pays for it
i don't have anyone to talk to
i don't really have friends to share this problem with
everyone else i know has a job they're clinging to
and don't really want to know about my problems
life sucks
then it sucks some more
then you are burried under it

Theres has got to be a better way...send me an email at ksaykey at we can brainstorm some positive ideas....

I truly feel your pain. A reporter wanted to interview me at a job fair today and I couldn't do it because I started to tear up just thinking about our situation.

There is indeed age discrimination. I had to quit a part-time job because it was costing me money to work - gas cost more than I made.

I am trying to volunteer at some places so I can get some hands-on experience with the new software in my field. I have started showing up places and handing out my resume.

Don't let them beat you! I can't commit suicide because it would upset my young nieces and I don't want them to see me give up.

Take care, hang in there and fight the fucking power that wants to destroy us.

yes fight the future! and capitalism.

A better way to send resumes out is to change each one a little bit to the specific job youre applying for...if you email it, using your name and the company's name in the filename will increase the chances of someone actually looking at it. if you keep sending the same resume out, a lot of companies will send you to the spam list
By anonymous at 13,Feb,11 00:01

I am the job fair person. I always tailor the resume to the position and ensure that the key words in the position description are in my resume as well as craft a new cover letter for each submission. I was also recently told to create a "dumbed-down" resume for jobs out of my specific field. I have never send the same resume twice and always have my name in the file name as well as the position title.

My crime is being 50 years old. When I interviewed for an Administrative Assistant position (well beneath my former pay scale and skill set) with Dick's Sporting Goods the staff members were sure to call me "Ma'am" with lots of sarcasm. Price Waterhouse asked me a backhanded age question by stating how much the city must have changed since I was younger, since I was a life-long resident.

I will survive whether Corporate America wants me to or not. :)

I like your attitude and pluck. You WILL survive and succeed, it's written all over your message. Best of luck to you. One foot in front of the other.

By anonymous at 09,Feb,11 23:53

Good way of putting all of that, mate. Life does suck for many of us. Indeed.

My life sucks too... Still we have to get over it and do our best:)

By anonymous at 22,Feb,11 22:14

I wanted to return and let the original poster know that I now have a full-time temp job and it should last until the end of September.

Please, please, please do not give up! There were so many times I fell into the depths of despair and I know how hopeless things can be.

There is a HUGE amount of age discrimination and it is heartbreaking to see so many of us suffering!

Take care!
