    • My ideal job is a receptionist position within a care home for the elderly and those living with dementia. There would be additional administrative and organisational elements alongside the core duties.

  • Job search 07-Oct-2017

    It's so hard to find a new job especially if your over 40! Employers need to appreciate the over 40's more. We have a lot to give. Lots of life experience and work experience. Employers please take note and give the over 40's a chance! Thank you from A. Rice

    I worked as receptionist but I lost my job because the company went bankrupt.
    I'm 45 years and I don't know where to find a new job. I’m Spanish native and speak English, Italian and Portuguese.
    Where can I find a new job?

  • Hospitality Last updated by gorge james946: 09-Jan-2017

    I work in a hotel. Up until this month, we were on short hours (needs of the business). This will be my second Christmas at work, and yes we will be working all over Christmas and New Year. We don't have a celebration. What's the point. I took this job as it was meant to be full time! I am an experienced Receptionist but am too old at 57 for a lot of companies so I have to put up with rotten hours and work conditions. What are your thoughts?

    • It is a hard to find a suitable job when you are unemployed and over fifty now! Prospective employers do not seem to recognise or appreciate work experience and skills gained, and if you are not working it is even harder to get a foot in the door.

  • Languages to work Last updated by john macey: 07-Dec-2016

    Hello all,
    I’m looking for a receptionist job. I saw different jobs and a skill is languages. But not define which languages are more important.
    What languages do you think are most important for this work?
    Thank u!

    Add comment
    • Hey! I think in this kind of job every language you know is an advantage. Because the tourists come from everywhere. But the most common are French, Spanish, German etc I guess

  • Unemployment and facing Homelessness Last updated by shadow: 05-Dec-2016

    I am an above average educated person. Due to unexpected circumstances, I now have 2 suitcases of possessions. I lived in my own home with every comfort any human being could want. I started my working life at 17 as an Air Hostess. I studied during my working life and now am capable of almost any job. I have tried to get employment but I always get the response of being "over-qualified". No one is "Over qualified" to clean a floor or work as a Receptionist. Especially if I am an going person and excel in working with people. So I am unemployed with no possibilities right now, although I still try. I am living with my son and his wife and granddaughter. We live in a small flat and my sons' wife is having another child. I have to leave this accommodation but have no where to go. I have contacted certain authorities to no avail. I am willing to work for my board and lodging to get on my feet again but cannot find any such safe arrangement. I have 2 weeks to find a solution...preferably on the South Coast (Devon). I am 57 and cannot live on the streets. I have not mentioned the emotional trauma i.e. even having to give my dog (who I loved so much), away. Who can help me. As mentioned, I am not looking for hand-outs...I am willing to work for my survival.

    • This is so unfortunate Elaine. I lived through similar circumstances and it's truly very tough, I soo feel for you. In my case, I opted for taking any job available even if it wasn't in my own field. As a matter of fact before I finally got a job in my area I worked cleaning offices and shopping centers, I didn't love it but it helped me stay afloat for a while. I wish you all the best!
