Q: Do you have any job searching suggestions for a 59-year-old with no degree? I have been unemployed since September 2011. I have been seeking administrative/clerical work and general labor. I have applied for countless positions and I've had two interviews in eight months. Maybe there are resources I'm overlooking. I would appreciate any ideas. Thanks for your assistance.
A: I would suggest that you visit the One Stop Career Center in Roseville. The services are free and you can work with a career coach who will be able to assist you with employment resources.
You might also look at training programs that would increase your computer and clerical skills in order to be more competitive and qualified for administrative positions. If eligible, you could receive a grant to pay for program tuition. For more information about the Roseville One Stop Services, visit www.goldensierrawib.com or call 916.865.2440.
