Cynthia's Story - As a former Senior Center Executive Director, I often claimed that my best career move was turning 50 years old. But after losing my job in 2013, I discovered that age discrimination was alive and well in the USA. During my job search journey, advancing to the second and third round in the interview process, I found it difficult to secure a position at the age of fifty-four. I was often asked why I wanted to have a position that I was clearly over-qualified. This served only as a reminder of how many professionals in my stage of life are still vibrant and desire to make a contribution to society. However, most times we are over looked and simply passed over because of our age. And for this reason, I dedicate my life’s work to advocating for the 50Plus and others in diverse communities here and beyond.
Anita's Story—Walking a mile in your boots…WHO-RAH!
I served over four years in the U.S. Army, and when I decided to get out and get married to an active duty soldier—I couldn’t find work. Even after completing my Associate and Bachelor degrees, I was unable to secure gainful employment, deciding to settle for jobs that I was over qualified for, if working at all. I know the struggle to build a career, or to even get a “job” to make ends meet. Being able to help my fellow comrades, those that may have physical ability challenges as myself, as well as joining the ranks of the “mature job seeker”, is my passion, and I work diligently to serve in getting America back to work!
