Years ago I was laid off in my 50’s. I was blindsided and completely unprepared for all the changes in the job market. Not only that, I ran into ageism because I was over 50. I was out of work for many months. Now I am in a position to help unemployed people get back to work without having to go through everything I did. This blog will give you all the tips and techniques you need to become more marketable and get back to work at a decent job with a good salary. Here I will show my latest articles. 

I also help unemployed qualify for either  a federal grant that will pay for them to get trained, certified and placed in their field, or a no risk option that will do the same.
