"@ Bill, as someone also in his 50s, the answer is two words: "AGE DISCRIMINATION". If you want a job, find a company filled with people (particularly in hiring positions) around your age. Very few companies filled and hired by young people…"

"Thanks. I've been told to fix my resume for each job, faithfully copying all the requirements. But I can't believe that recruiters don't see through that. Seems dishonest to basically copy the job description into my resume, adjusting…"

At a Loss

IANAR but am trying to understand why I haven't been able to get a job for almost two years. Out of the USAF I was a Systems Analyst for 5 years with a large computer company, then a Sr. Project Manager for 5 years with a larger one. I graduated to Director of Development with an energy management company, then Director of IT Security with a telecom company.Well that last company folded two years ago and I haven't been able to get a job since. I've sent out almost two thousand resumes over that…See More

Hi Bill:

My name is Matt Charney, and I just started here at Recruiting Blogs, but wanted to reach out to introduce myself. I'd like to offer to help in any way I can to introduce you to my network as well as the recruiters who read this site regularly.

I had a hard time finding you on LinkedIn, so I'd definitely say that'd be the place to start, since that's where many recruiters start looking for great candidates. Let me know if you need help setting up a profile, but definitely highlight the fact that you're a veteran with IT skills - believe it or not, both of those are in demand with many employers.  There are also some great resources for both veteran job seekers as well as recruiters at the US Department of Labor's America's Heros At Work Site (http://www.americasheroesatwork.gov/forEmployers/HiringToolkit) to help with transitioning veterans.

Please e-mail your resume to matt@recruitingblogs.com and I'll be happy to introduce you to some of my colleagues who have made the move from the military to leading recruiting at some of the biggest brands in the world, and I'm sure would be happy to take a look, too.

Thank you for your service.

Matt Charney
