Jacquie Johnson credits job coaching and BACK TO WORK 50+ for helping her get a full-time job she loves. She lost her job by choice — the kind of choice most of us wouldn’t hesitate to make.
Jacquie was working as a supervisor of environmental services at a major hospital in Indiana when she made the difficult decision to resign her position so she could help take care of her ailing mother in Oklahoma, who had chronic kidney failure and had developed dementia.
Gabe Menvielle can’t prove it, but he’s fairly certain his age, 55, factored into his struggle to find a job. “It was an unusually low response rate. I’d send 50 résumés out, and I wouldn’t hear back from 45 of them. That would never have happened before, with my background. I have experience with software companies and nonprofits, good companies. I worked for the symphony, the Florida Philharmonic. I thought, ‘Am I invisible? What’s going on?’”
