1. Reading things like this make me want to throw a massive temper tantrum. The problem is AGE DISCRIMINATION. I can certainly do administrative/bookkeeping jobs IN MY SLEEP. But I am constantly passed over becuse of my age even when I meet 1000% of the requirements.

    It is so infuriating I want to SCREAM.

  2. I would like to know what constitutes full-time school on a weekly unemployment claim (in NJ). Is it assumed to be during full-time working hours (approx. 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.), 12 credits as defined by the colleges or some other definition? I would like to attend and answer the questions on my claim honestly, but I don’t know how to answer.

  3. I feel that there is a certain amount of age discrimination. I am qualified for several positions but being 59 I have been passed over for interviews. I have been unemployed for over two years even McDonalds says no. I’m overqualified. My question to you is about a new career. I have exhausted my unemployment benefits. If I return to school will I be able to collect benefits until I finish a course to become certified as a paralegal. I have some credits at school towards this line of work. Please advise.

  4. Hello, work as a freelance in IT, took a leave for over a year for family reasons in Mexico, now I’m back in Chicago, have both citizenships, member of the Mayor’s Workforce Training Program in 2001, obtained my A+, Network+ and the MCSE Certifications from Microhard Inc. My question is: I would like to update my old Certifications for new ones – same School or others – in order to compete with new Gen’s, I’m 58 with over 38 yrs in IT since the IBM 370/145 OS/HASP etc. “Not broke yet, but there soon”… Have a test” thank you State!
