I was laid off back in December.
I'm 62 and I have applied for 115 jobs since I was laid off.
I've had 3 interviews and no offers.
When my unemployment runs out ,I will have no choice but to apply for SS.
If you are over 60 ,your chances of landing a job, ANY JOB, are less than zero
My father was a TV repairman who recycled televisions-he would find them on the street , fix them and give them to friends and neighbors. We didn't have a color TV until 1969- and it was used.
ok- I'm 62 and if I went with my 'natural' color, my hair would be gray! I'm working in a corporate environment, so that doesn't work for me. Once I 'retire' (lol) , it will be an option.
