❤ speaking to my soul sis! I relocated to FL a few years ago and experienced the same thing. It was humiliating to be rejected for no obvious reasons, to receive no response from employers when you know your resume and skills are a perfect match for their generic job description, or to go through the interview process only to be told they can’t afford to pay you your worth. Ageism is real in the field, and job hunting during this phase of live is depressing. I still feel like I’m 30 and can do anything, but my resume says otherwise apparently.
