unemployable due to age??

  1. 0
    I have recently moved to Colorado Springs. I am a 58 yrs old RN. I am not getting call backs on my applications. I have a great deal of experience (13yrs ER, 4 yrs PACU, 9 yrs Radiology, Amb Surg and ENDO experience). I worked at my prior employer for 26 years. Is anyone else having this problem? I have heard of new grads not getting call backs, but I thought everyone wanted experienced RN's. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    I live in Pueblo and I am employed in Denver. I have 3 years experience as a nurse...one of those as a LPN. I filled out 50 (or close to) applications with 4-5 call backs for interviews, but only after I actually called the hospital recruiters directly...I think It is a tough job market out there right now for any age or level of experience. Keep trying...something will come up with your experience. I am sure of it. If you dont mind Denver or Pueblo, try in those areas as well. Good luck to you.

    Maybe they just don't want to pay you what you're worth...
