When I moved here a year ago with my husband as his 101 Mother's declining health, and still living independently in her own home, I didn't think I would have much difficulty is finding a job. I worked for Premera Blue Cross in Mountlake Terrace WA for 5 years as a claims processor. Although I have applied for jobs here, I'm still unemployed. It seems 95% of businesses here go through a staffing agency. I understand it's economics on the businesses' part, as it eliminates the taking of applications and resumes, and sorting out potential employees, but it's disheartening because I know I'm capable of doing the job, and I can't get past the staffing agency. Older persons need jobs too, not just young adults out of school.
Thanks for letting me vent a little. 8 months ago
