Hi Heather,

I am looking for a job and was intrigued by your comments. I would certainly be interested in finding out more information. But I did not want to just call you out of the blue. If you could post a reply I would be interested in talking with you more. Thanks Ryan.

Hey Bill,

Just curious? The 6:30 Evening News on television did a story about a laid off auto designer in Michigan a few months back. I believe they told the story about a man who couldn't find work and was delivering newspapers in the morning to make ends meat, and he was also having difficulty paying his mortgage. I don't mean to be a noseybody, but just curious if that person was you?

Either way, good luck with your job search, I wish the best for you and your family.

Biotech - brand new research campus being developed in Kannapolis.....from what I've read, there will be many jobs opening up within the next year - not all needing a biotech background. Would recommend staying away from the banks.

virgocalifornia in Moreno Valley, California said: I am looking for someone with heavy operations, research, industrial engineering and/or forecasting background. Incumbent will deploy and lead an operational team so management backgroound is important. Position is located in Charlotte, NC. If you have the background please contact me or if you know of someone who does please pass along my information. My name is Norman Harris and I am with the Bank of America staffing team. My direct line (909)390-5805 and my email address is norman.l.harris@bankofamerica.com.

Hi Norman.

It looks like you need managemente experience at a level that exceeds what I have to offer at this time. I have a profile on BOA's data and look through it periodically. It appears that with the heavy BOA lay-offs in Charlotte, you probably have internal candidates with the experience that you seek.

Thanks for your kind reply, and may you find the perfect candidate.

Looking for legal administrative/secretarial work in Charlotte. Relocating there mid-Sept. Didn't expect to find an apt before I got there, but I have so I need a job soon. I'm 56 and was laid off in April from a law firm NYC. Relocation to Charlotte was already a planned, but things are moving really fast now. I didn't think of my age until now. I'm a rather spry 56 and a hard worker. Let me know if you have any leads. I'd be most grateful. Also, I'm working with the following job sites I got from AARP, in case anyone is interested: RetirementJobs.com, SeniorJobBank.org and RetiredBrains.com.

I am looking seriously at relocating to North Carolina, Cary or CHARLOTTE, OR RALEIGH North Carolina to be near my military son. I have two degrees, An AA in Journalism and a BA in Communications. I have over seven years experience as a Medical Secretary as well as Sales experience. How does the job market look for administrative support. I am a Baby Boomer as well. Children all grown and gone.
I have excellent proof-reading skills and writing skills. I would like to become independent and work from home if possible. Any suggestions?

Hi. As you can see, I too am looking for administrative work in Charlotte. You might have noticed the 3 web sites for us baby boomers in my comment. I've been hunting online through monster.com and careerbuilder.com since June. Seems to be the online job search rules have changed quite a bit; that is, my experience for several years (I maintain a job alert agent at both monster and careerbuilder -- at monster since 2003 -- and the requirement used to be to simply find jobs you were suited for and click their apply button and the resume you set up with monster and your cover letter (if you choose) would be automatically forwarded to that potential employer. No longer. Now, perhaps because of identity concerns online, the responsibility for our personal information rests with the employer and not so much the recruiter. So, when we apply through monster or careerbuilder or hotjobs, for instance, we're directed to the potential employer's online application, which is now considered a legal document, whereas a resume by itself is not. I just keep hunting. Actually haven't been to sleep yet, up all night reading job opportunities in and around Charlotte. First time feeling the age crunch. It's a reality, but it won't bite me. I bite back. Join me in biting back. We can't fight with the same combatants the big dawgs have, but we can do one thing for sure: DON'T GIVE UP. Stay in touch. I'll keep you abreast of what I learn. If I connect with any substantial leads, I'll pass them on to you. Your credentials are impressive, and keep in mind also that only just this past week it was brought to my attention that many of these employers are demanding at least associates degrees. All I have are 30+ years in the legal industry and a plethora of software application experience, which would benefit an employer just fine if they'd let me in the door. I refuse to fret, though. Then there's also the virtual assistant. Be blessed.

Ray47, thanks so much for your comments. I am in the same age group--Empty Nester, & BABY BOOMER, and it has hit me regarding age as well. Listen, why don't we do our own thing. Collaborate together and start our own research/investigation agency. With your 30yrs+ and my 10 -15 years, we can make our own darn job? Are youg game?

My direct email is mickeymouse555@live.com...email and let's discuss details. I have great ideas that just need to be acted upon. Truly!!!!

raye47 Also, I just wanted to add that working as an Independent may be an answer, but I know in the meanwhile a steady paycheck is needed. Have the other Senior Job Boards been helpful at all? I will join them as well. The entire corporate thing just ain't my thing (to borrow a little slang) anymore. I want something that pays well without all the fuss. I have always wanted to work as a legal secretary, but lacked the experience in terms of legal. I've heard that just typing only for a law firm can pay pretty well, but getting in is difficult without previous experience in LEGAL... you get my drift. I heard a guy talk about his wife who was a Paralegal, who decided to go off on her own and provide Research services to attorneys, particularly targeting new attorneys or those large law firms that may be swamped with too many cases. She charges $55 an hour and it seems to pay better than she was making previously. So I am looking but also looking outside the box as well .... I have been unemployed for six months now and things are getting hairy, very very hairy to say the least. It makes me wonder why did I bother to get my degrees. They aren't doing me much good nowadays it seems. BUT I WON'T GIVE IN AND I WON'T GIVE UP and I am ready to relocate which seems to bea better thing to do and I have chosen North Carolina.... Stay in touch... GOD HELP US BOTH!!!

Hmmm...would think with the interest rate drop there should be a refi-craze going on. What that means is mortgage companies at least bringing in temps to cover all the excess. Just a recommendation - do some searching on mortgage companies in and around the Charlotte area, stay away from the banks.

Thank you for the reply...I am checking out the temp agencies now and applying for what I have seen so far. I don't see any banks really hiring until maybe next year (later in 2009) if that, they always have job positions open, but that really does not mean that they're hiring right now. I don't think we'll have a refi boom just yet with the economy the way it is.

Jacqueline Bauer in Albemarle, North Carolina said: Out of work at the age of 58 and being a white female the corporate world needs to look at whate they are hiring. The young kids are very unprofessional what they are hiring, plus they are not staying. If they hire the mature individual they are staying until they retire.

One of my background is in Collections/Commercial and Consumer; the other is Sub Prime Collections/Loss Mitigation with over 5 years.

I will travel to a job 1 hour, which mean Winston Salem, Charlotte and surrounding area.

Can someone assist me. The temp agencies are not even talking to me. Over qualified.

Thanks for listening.

Jackie Bauer

Jackie have you tried subscribing to Linkedin? and join many of the groups for your area? You can network with alot of professionals in your field and jobs are posted there all the time and many times by the HR hiring personnel and not the #@! vultures from the temp agencies.

A Secretary in Fort Mill, South Carolina

65 months ago

To all looking for secretarial work - this is the WRONG TIME to be looking for a position in Charlotte. With all the layoffs around town - at the banks, the big law firms, and tons of other industries - secretaries and administrative staff have borne the brunt of the bad times.

Whereas in 2007 you would have only 50-60 resumes coming in for one admin position, now employers are receiving 400-500 PER POSITION. Not only that, but because the market is flooded, salaries have dropped to HALF of what they were just two years ago. Whereas $45K was the norm for mid-range secretaries in 2006, it has dropped to about $32K in 2009 - for FULL-TIME employment.

At my company alone (which is a smaller company of about 100 employees), eight administrative staff have been let go over the past several months. And these are highly-qualified admins with a LOT of experience under their belt. NONE of them have found jobs since being laid off.

So if you have plans on moving here and finding work as a secretary or assistant - think long and hard about it, because it's harder than you think.
