older workers

i was laid off when my company closed here in Wilmington. At 58 years of age, it took me four years to find a full time job. during that time, i worked temp jobs continuously. alot of companies will hire you on permanantly if you start out as a temp and do a good job. i work with two ladies that are going to be made permanant soon and they came in from a temp agency. it is tough being an older person looking for work because there is a tendency in this town to hire the younger worker, not to mention the competition for jobs. he should go to several of the temp agencies around town if he already hasen't done so and put in that resume. many companies hire from the temp agencies and do not hire directly.
