Where does a women that just turn "52" find a job? I have been out of work for almost a year, and I am about to go crazy. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice, and living in Detroit where the police department cut hundreds' of jobs, the state went out on strike because there was no money, automotive industry has all but shut its' doors, casinos' have laid-off some employees, Michigan has the highest foreclosure in the country,and if you are looking at the news, you will see that Michigan has the highest unemployment rate in the nation. I need some help from anyone who is willing to give me a JOB, so I can PAY my bills.

HELP,
Debra

Hang in there. I'm a 54 year old man with 20 years of management exp. in cusotmer service. I was laid off a year ago. I have applied for over 50 jobs, many of them entry level, I'm so desperate. I have had a total of 5 replys. I too, am frustrated beyond belief.

Thanks Steven, I am hanging in there. I quess we would have to open our own business. With your management experience, and my supervisor/accounting experience. Don't forget we are the baby boomers, and the way this economy is going, retirement is off the table.

It's not easy. I'm in a similiar boat. Sad thing is that as each month goes by and your unemployed, employers look at you like what is wrong with this person, why can't they find a job. If only they were in our shoes and sitting on the other side of the desk. I went for a job for a supervisory position at a local newspaper (Times Record) and the District Manager couldn't understand why I was out of work for 6 months. I almost lost my cool. It's not easy to find a solid job unless your name is Kennedy, etc.. I've tried alot of creative ways to get my foot in the door and then to get the position. Oh, by the way, I have outside sales experience so maybe I can head up the sales dept in our new company. What is the product or service that we are selling? Best of luck.

I will take a chance... If I don't find something I will not be able to communicate with any of you, because my aol access will be shut down.

Thank you,
Debra
