  1. any one on here like me i am 57yrs old and i apply for 5 jobs a day as required from my adviser at the job center. i have been unemployed over 5 years but i never get any interviews. i also did 4 weeks of work experience, a few weeks ago.my adviser says it would help getting work,but to no avail. my adviser repeatedly asks me why i am not getting interviews for jobs.i say i think its my age. they say age is not a barrier. i say it definitely is.what do you think.
  2. was at the job center last week ,and my adviser asked me what my barriers were to not finding work,i said my age i am 55 yrs old.and its harder for over 50s and school leavers to find work. as i had seen programs on tv about the subject,and i dont even get any reply's to my applications back. my adviser said that is rubbish and every one has an equell chance of finding work,is she clueless.she seems to think theirs loads of jobs out there for every one.
  3. The majority of over 50s are missing the best credit card deals and get charged interest unnecessarily, according to new research. Research from Saga found that a third of over 50s chose their credit card because it was with their bank, rather than look for the best deal available. The same proportion also ended up paying interest on their credit card after the interest-free period ended because it was "too much hassle" to switch or because they forgot. Michael Ossei, personal finance expert at uSwitch.com, said: “This is fairly indicative of consumers generally who can sometimes make poor decisions regarding their credit cards. "It’s vital that people shop around for the best deal for their needs and aren’t lured in by freebies or misplaced loyalty to their bank. "The fact is that there are some superb deals out there but consumers need to check the small print and also be prepared to move on again once a special offer, such as a 0pc introductory deal, has ended. This way consumers can make their credit cards work harder for them.” Link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/borrowing/creditcards/9997557/Why-over-50s-pay-too-much-for-credit-cards.html
