    ...when I get the "overqualified" reply, In my mind I want to get up and punch the interviewer in the face. It's just a bloody excuse to duck the fact that they don't want ot hire me because of my age. 

    I have people telling me to forget getting hired and to start a business of my own instead.  I've tried that route before years ago, ended up working more for the taxman than for myself (and had less free time than I did in my previous job).  Besides, I am terrible at sales.

    This is why I am pushing for SS Dis/Retirement instead. Yeah it's no luxury lifestyle, but it should keep a roof over my head and food in the pantry.  Then I can maybe do some book covers and illustration work for spending money on the side without having to file all the bloody self employment paperwork.

    Excellent that you are able to get around again. Hoping that one of those leads come through.  Supposedly Portland is growing as a tech centre and fertile ground for startups. Good transit and good beer here. You could probably get a reduced fare card like I have so you can shoo the youngsters out of the front seats.

    I am not saying it was not ageism, but one big reason they don't like "overqualified" people is that they are pretty sure the person will be looking for something that is more on par with their experience and pay level, and when they find something, they will leave.  Companies don't like to spend the time training someone only to watch them leave for better pastures.  And they are mostly correct about that.  These days there are plenty who are willing to take huge pay cuts just to have money coming in, but that thought of them leaving when they find something better is always there and that's why they try to avoid hiring the "overqualified".  Hiring someone younger with just a little experience is a win-win for them.  They can pay them less, and they don't have to worry about them leaving for a while.

    For where I've move to, it's ABC anywhere but California) lol!  Right now all I see in the Portland area is at Intel, and it's all contracts with no relocation pay.. so that's kind out for for me, for now.

    It's ten years before I can retire on full SS, so that's not an option.. sure wish it was. indecision

    Yep,  get the feeling they were really looking for some zealous young punk who would work lots of overtime and weekends.. which isn't an issue for me, I told 'em so but they were still "you're going to be bored".  Feh.  I'm starting to feel that ageism thing coming on, hateful hateful hateful.

    I've actually started my own game development company TWICE!   Am I a slow learner or what?  But I figure it would be a very short-term thing, like a year or so, before I could jump back into working for one of the local mobile game companies here in Austin unless I put out a title that sells millions of copies (heh).  Hard work yeah, the tax thing sucks, but  the exit strategy would be to get bought out.

    We'll see how things go.  Just have to keep pushing on...

     

    ...yeah Intel recently announced another corporate wide layoff, 12,000 employees, they've also been petitioning for raising the cap on H1Bs.  Not sure just how much that would affect us here.

    There are a few other fairly prominent tech firms like Nvidia, E-on, and Autodesk HQ'd here.

    ...true, the latter is part of it but it is also often also used to avoid hiring older workers for the same reasons as some are a afraid older people will ask for more because of their "life experience". Crikey, I just wanted a job that would cover the rent and expenses here, not be able to drive around in a Jaguar XKE or Tesla.

I went for body wash and a gift for a friend's birthday but got two body washes, a shower pouf, three air freshener refills, some hand sanitizer, a hand sanitizer holder and a body lotion for my friend all for a good price.   I got the body wash for a little over three each so I thought everything was a good deal.

    We'll see how things go.  Just have to keep pushing on...

     

    ...yeah Intel recently announced another corporate wide layoff, 12,000 employees, they've also been petitioning for raising the cap on H1Bs.  Not sure just how much that would affect us here.

    There are a few other fairly prominent tech firms like Nvidia, E-on, and Autodesk HQ'd here.

    [Crikey this spell checker is bad, worse than Firefox in what it suggests.]

    Intel is in major reshuffle mode, for sure.  Probably not a fun place to work right now...

    Back to the job search, urgh...

     

    ...yeah, the actually are one of the tech firms that has a poor track record when it comes to ageism.

    I went shopping at bath and body works because they had a great sale and I needed body wash. I went for body wash and a gift for a friend's birthday but got two body washes, a shower pouf, three air freshener refills, some hand sanitizer, a hand sanitizer holder and a body lotion for my friend all for a good price.   I got the body wash for a little over three each so I thought everything was a good deal.

    ...as I understand sanitisers are bad as they make your system more sensitive to germs.

    ...stopped off at a fiends place after ourt game session tonight.  Frank strawberry Margaritas (with real strawberries in the blender) and good quality whiskey.  A little drunkapated tonight.

    Leela kicked butt again, taking two of the bad guys out in one firefight while all the other characters, including the spell slingers, kept flubbing up. So of course, they saw her as a the real threat and shot at her including tossing an HE grenade her way (fortunately she survived).

    Last week she disarmed a really nasty bomb that was designed to spread a bad military grade neurotoxin in a stadium saving the day (if you can set up demolitions you can also disarm them). We finished that mission in record (real) time, 1hr 45 min.
