Serioulsy looking for a job after my husband died in Nov. 2009

I have been seriously looking for a job after my husband died on Nov. 15, 2009.  I am 54 years of age and have 26 years experience as a receptionist.  My daughter's Liisa husband Grant advised me to be open to other kinds of jobs.  I am figuring maybe I am not getting the job offers because of my age  It is an important factor that is for sure.  I have to be open to other kinds of jobs especially when my age is a factor.  This job hunting sucks when  you are 54 years of age.  It is not fair at all.  It is hard at any age but over 50 there is so much prejudice.  I thought it was interesting so I thought I would share it with all of you.  From Diane

Diane - i think this has to be a nightmare - grieving your husband and looking for a job. My job was the only glue holding me together and I\'m so blessed to have a job I love. I really hope you find something and soon. Good luck and much love - Lisa
