Imagine wearing a multitude of hats in a history of jobs. That is what I call a living resume; a diverse background worked many positions. You would think that many will seek you out and hire you, but with approaching the age of 62, a question arises, am I marketable?
I love my job at the courthouse. The primaries just passed, we have a new clerk, and he plans on reassessing and reinventing the clerks’ office.
I invested eight years of my life; I love what I do, and to be perfectly honest, I don’t have the desire to start over someplace else, but if I had to, I would.
The following are my past employment: HR Business Analyst ( current ); HR Administrative Assistant; HR Administrative Aide; Special Projects Administrative Aide; Special Projects Administrator ( demoted from this position due to budget cuts); Elder Affairs Cares Assessor ( it was not a good fit); Pharmaceutical Recruiter; Treatment Coordinator; Targeted Case Manager; General Manager. And adding to that lineup is my educational history: I have a Bachelor’s in Business Administration, a minor in Human Resources, and an Associates in Community Mental Health, and there you have it.
There is no solution for this situation except being realistic, be proactive and look for work by dusting off my resume, and prepare myself. I will keep you all posted.
