I relocated from CT and have had nothing but bad luck finding a job. I'm overqualified for simple CSR jobs. I worked in NYC, am older, and educated. My clients were C-level execs. A recruiter advised removing my degree & "dumbing myself down - I intimidate young mgrs." I've tapped out every large co. I'm seeking $25/hr, small co. Thoughts?

I’m in the same boat. Moved here last summer, I am older, highly educated and have had difficulties finding work. I also worked in NYC, my clients were also C-level executives and I am in the communications field. I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life. I’ve been interviewing with mostly people who have degrees from Texas schools, who are under qualified to be in their positions or who have never left this state. Not sure if they prefer hiring their own kind.

Some of the job listings and what they are looking for are totally disjointed. I was at the top of my field and was always the top candidate. Not sure exactly what is going on but know you are not alone and I wish you the best in your search! Will be praying something great happens soon.

Hi everyone! I’m just preparing for the real world outside of college with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, but I’ve been stuck in between going to grad school or entering straight into industry. I want to lean more towards the area of computer science to further my studies and career, however, I’ve been advised by some to just learn it on the side and go straight into the workforce and find another role eventually down the road. What are your thoughts? I have little coding experience btw.
