I have stage 4 colon cancer that was diagnosed in August 2008. I began my regiman of chemo Sept. 30, 2008. I receive chemo every other Tue. This regiman continues.
I was laid off my job in June 2010. The work I was laid off from I did for 14 years. My job search has pretty much been fruitless. I updated my resume'. I continue searching. In one phone interview, I disclosed my medical condition and was told to get back in touch with them when my treatment was finished. I have not been given a timetable for when my treatment will end. It's clear to me that I need to get in touch with a potential employer that can appreciate my skill set AND understands with sensitivity and compassion my treatment schedule and can work with me around it.
I don't have the time or money to go back to college to develop a new talent. I need to find a job that utilizies the 14 years of experience I already have. And I know there are openings in this field in my area. Unfortuantely, I don't get any replies to these positions when I apply for them. Not lately. I am starting to get discouraged. Where do I go from here?
