I am in my mid 50's and was out of the job market for 10 years, I kept busy with volunteer work in my community. I attended a 12 week accelerated HUC training program in my city of Cincy OH - not only did they teach me to be a HUC, they offered me a solid job search and it included resume/cover letter writing as well as interviews with 3 top hospitlas in the area. Also, a very important part was I was able to do 2 weeks of clinical work at one of those hospitals, they wanted to hire me on the spot! I ended going with another hospital even closer to home and I just love it! Good luck and do your research.
