Lacking Resume References
- Joel Spackman
What does a nice guy do about references for his resume when all he has done in his life are terrible production line jobs?
It has been either quitting to try and go somewhere for more money, or getting laid off repeatedly because I'm not 20-something anymore.
My best years peaked at 40 years old. Ever since then, all I try to do is the best I can do. It is hard to keep pace with the younger ones. I am 54 and try very hard, but keep getting laid off. At 10 dollars an hour it is very hard to keep a home.
I long for the outdoors and being able to be me, a nice and very friendly person. My wife, also.
What references could we use from people who never cared about us, just the almighty dollar?
Our dream is to work camp and be free from the rat race, and be able to serve others with a great big smile on our faces.
Thanks for letting me dream,
