About the over-50 sub-forum . . .

Post by worrywart on Fri Apr 22, 2011 11:38 am

Hi to all of my Brothers and Sisters of Displaced American Workers United,

I'd suggested the idea of a thread (or of a sub-category) to help come up with some job search tips and best-practices for our job seekers who are over-50. I feel this to be an especially important sub-topic of unemployment and job search, because finding re-employment after 50 was already a tough business even before the wheels came off this economy of ours.

It may be well to have our golden-members begin by coming up with a list of relevant questions, questions that DAWU as a whole could then seek to address (e.g., "should I apply to a position I qualify for . . . even though objectively I know that were I the hiring manager for that opening I'd probably be seeking someone younger?").

As for what WW intends to post, I have begun contacting a couple of local people about this subject. Also, I will start asking a few more people (from my church) this Sunday . . . people who went through the "unemployed and over-50" struggle in 2004-05, back when I led the job-club for church elders. Of course, times are tougher now than they were in 2005, but I take and sort and weigh and integrate such counsel as I can find.

I anticipate that I can probably come up with an article for the "Five-Os" sometime in late May. Unfortunately, my articles can take quite some lead time to prepare, and I have the feeling that this article is going to take me longer than most of the others I submitted on the Original Unemployed Friends Forum..

Finally, it is both my hope and my request that DAWU members of all ages will contribute to this DAWU sub-section as best they can, furnishing any information our over-50 job seekers might be able to use to improve the efficiency and/or effectiveness of their job search activities. Por Favor???

Hi worrywart:

Question I guess I am having one of my SENIOR moments at age 52 because I am totally missing what you are saying in your post.

Why do you need to form a subforum? It is hard enough keeping up on this forum(lol), now you are talking about more "clicks" and trying to figure out where stuff is...

And where is your subforum?

Thank you,
