As I think I've mentioned here before, my company has announced it is relocating from NYC to Atlanta. I am seriously considering going, but I am also seriously considering not going.
If I don't go, I still need a job. I'll be 60 once the move occurs.
I do have a great resume and, once I submit it to appropriate positions, I often receive a phone call, often followed by an interview or two. That said, there's quite a difference between getting a phone call and being offered a job. In fact, the last time I was unemployed, it took 11 months to find this job. (If that happens again, I'll start a new thread called, "Anyone Ever Gotten a New Job at 61 Years old?")
I also have a lot of contacts in my field in NYC who will keep their eyes out for me -- in fact, I'm having lunch with someone on Monday who might soon be leaving her position, which I'd like to take over.
So, great -- great resume, lots of relevant contacts, good experience. Will anyone offer a job to a 60-year-old?
