The job market has never been better. Just take it from me, a fifty-year-old white man with seven degrees.
I’ve been a little bored at home since my kids went off to college, and I decided I’d change paths. I had nothing to lose. I own my house in Greenwich, Connecticut and have tens of thousands in savings. In my youth, I used to be incredibly spontaneous. In fact, my fraternity brothers used to call me Mr. Spontaneous. I’d fly girls out to Vienna and Paris anytime we’d get time off from school. Nobody else did what I did. And it wasn’t just because they didn’t have a trust fund. I was just Mr. Spontaneous.
And now, I decided to channel my younger self. I’ve been making accounts on LinkedIn and Indeed, and I tell ya, there are so many great options in my field! I was feeling a bit rusty, so I narrowed my search to ‘entry level’ positions. I was thrilled with the results. I can’t believe it’s this easy to find an entry level job! This morning I applied to an entry level job that only requires ten years of experience in my field! Fingers crossed the hiring manager takes a chance on Mr. Spontaneous.
