How does a 44 yearold woman get job?
I am 44 years old and have been trying to get a job for more than 2 years now. I have even approached employers and offered to work for free to gain work experience. I've done community work which never leads to anything and I've also done hospitality courses but all the advertised jobs are for young people not people my age. I've been considering going back to school to gain more education I just think that I am too old to be thinking about going back to school. Any ideas.
