It is always harder to find a job when you reach a certain age.  A female lawyer, almost 60,  has submitted 1,000 applications and has yet to find a job.  According to the ABA Journal report, she has applied for everything from day care worker to clerk.  The former shopping center lawyer was laid off in January, 2009.  She has not even had one interview.  She compares finding a job interview to looking for a unicorn…..

Many of my clients who lost their jobs in their 50’s typically take a year or more to find a new job.
