This was the job he had 3 intervieuws for.......reason he did not get it: to old.....(54) well he was 54 when they met him......so unfair, we had such high hopes......


So sad......

So very sorry to hear this news. I know what you are going through. My hubby was out of work for 2 years before he got his current job. Talk about pulling in the purse strings. Have faith it will all work out it did for us. We still have a long haul back to right things after that long with no real income but one day at a time, stay positive.

So sorry. It always hurts so much when you are hoping for something that doesn't come through, especially a job that you need so badly. I am praying that something even better is right around the corner for you all.

That is sad news but a least they called him with it, many times they don't bother to let the candidates know they weren't chosen. Know it is hard to do but you two need to keep the faith and we here will keep the prayers coming for some Good Luck knocking on your door soon.

I am so sorry to hear this, after he had such great hopes, and obviously was highly considered for the job. I hope something else shows up on the horizon and quickly. I'll be praying for you!

If age really is the reason, they are just plain dumb. A person in his 50s has many productive, useful years ahead, is usually much more reliable than a kid out of college, has much more experience, etc. I think that is just an excuse they use. They are the losers. Hang in there. I know it is tough. We, too, have had to face some age discrimination and unemployment. Someone will recognize his skills and dependability. Keep the faith!!

Age is what gives us our experience and expertise. I am so sorry to hear he did not get this position. I am sure he would have been an awesome addition to their team. I send blessings your way for that next opportunity to show up quickly.

This really just sucks and I'm so sorry to hear it. Too old at 54?...this is ridiculous! When my daughter and her family moved back from Colorado she was turned down for a Teller Job at the bank because she had been a Supervisor at a large bank in Denver and she was told she had too much experience...are you kidding me...she didn't care, just like your husband...she needed a job!
I pray that your dh finds a job soon.

(((Jan and Klasien))) Sorry to hear this. It's seems to be the norm out there for us over 50. We're too expensive, too old, too experienced for many of the current hiring managers. Don and I have been dealing with this for the last 3 years. Sure hope that it's going to be easier for Jan in Holland.

Prayers for both of you...

Huggers, Ruby and Don

So sorry that Jan didn't get the job. I know people here that would be filing age discrimination lawsuits if they were told too old was the reason they didn't get a job.

Wow. I just knew he was going to get this one. I am saddened to read that his age played a part in the decision. He still has a lot of work years ahead.
Blessings to you and hugs, dear girl

Here's a thought; What does he "Like" to do?
Just like what you are doing....turn something you love to do into something you can earn a living at!
Continued prayers for you both.....

I am so sorry this one didn't work out - you would think if it was age, that they would have figured that one out at the first interview. Continued prayers for both of you.

Ah Klasien, so sorry to hear this. It just isn't fair for them to build your hopes up like that, and then use that as an excuse. Praying a door will open soon.
