Wilmington Jobs Market is Pitiful

Try being in your 60's and finding a job. Any job in this area is completely at the whim of the manager. No matter your qualifications, experience, education jobs are who you know, not what you know. Being a senior citizen in this town is very frustrating and definitely businesses are not conducive to hiring of those who have worked all their lives and have the experience and know how to prosper. Businesses in this town practice age discrimination and anyone in the job market 55 and older can tell you plenty of stories of job applications with never a response. Alot of us, myself included are College Educated with Degrees, Veterans and still viable but cannot get the opportunity due to age. I can definitely vouch that one large business in this area does not cater to Veterans like their website claims, Sears. For a employee who got outstanding job reviews from the Supervisor I never received more than 5 hours in one week until laid off. Others who were younger, not neccessarily wiser were given more. Just an example of lack of jobs in this area!
