Last year was a lot I will be honest. I was laid off in December '21 due to pandemic affecting business I was also undergoing cancer treatments at the time . So in Jan I had cancer, needed a liver transplant and was unemployed. 2023 I am cancer free thanks to a transplant last year! So I am very grateful.
I will be 62 soon and trying to get back to work as medical bills are tough and had to dip into savings. I am not ready to retire but I am overqualified for a lot of the jobs I would like to do as I was a Director of IT. The combination of being overqualified and older is causing me a lot of issues. I have had several interviews and applied to over 50 companies but it is getting discouraging.
Any advice for this grateful survivor?
