My dad is turning 65 soon and yesterday he told me he’s super unhappy at his job bc he’s not getting promoted. He feels like his talents are not being utilized. I feel for him but he’s so close to retirement and he’s the sole breadwinner for him and my mom (brother and I offered support but they decline). Has anyone been in a similar situation? I feel like he will get discouraged with his job search if he doesn’t hear back from places and will be even more unhappy. Anyone have any leads on (con)
