After my last termination around 10 years ago, I fell into a personal great depression. Even now there are days where I just want to cry. I do not have any relatives or friends who could help me find work. I don’t have a face to face network of any kind. All of my friends are anonymous online chatters, and even they only think about me when I am online. When I am not talking, they are probably not caring where I am.
I have not had a significant job in my life. The longest I have held a position is about two years and have always been terminated. With this long hiatus from my last position to now, I don’t even know what employers are looking for anymore. What would I write on my cover letter to explain my long hiatus? I could write after my last position ended I decided to focus on my domestic situation. It may sound good, but any potential employer could see right through it.
If I get as far as an interview, I still have about a dozen hurdles to clear. I am a fat, limping, older, and ugly woman. I am afraid a potential employer would take one look at me and decide against me immediately. I might not be obese, and more people are overweight these days, but if even one of the other candidates is petite; she would probably get the job. When an interviewer calls my name, and when I stand to walk forward my hip could seize up causing me to limp badly. (It does that to me often. Even a short trip to go grocery shopping causes my hip to at least twinge as I step out of my vehicle.)
Who would hire me?
