Want to feel invisible? Try hunting for a job at 50
Oops, it happened again. There I was, casually sauntering along through life, sending off job applications and foolishly expecting a reply but nothing happens. Not so much as a 'Thank you'.
How had it come to this? When had I morphed from experienced professional to an unwanted 'has-been'? Had it happened overnight? Well, it certainly feels as though I have become an overnight failure. Yesterday, my years on this earth promised experienced, talented, sought-after skills. Today, it appears those same years have somehow put me into a new, unemployable category.
I can't even boast grey hair talent as I am not that old. Instead, I exist in a dark limbo-land of invisibility.
