My husband needs a job

My husband is in his late 50s and he has lost his job since 4 months, which was sudden and unexpected only because he stuck to work ethics. . He was liked by his juniors and they looked up to him for guidance and help. He had to take decisions at work and he would not allow anything that he thought was unfair to society and went by rules. Our daughter is still in the first year of university. My mother-in-law is unwell and she needs full time two nurses to look after her. I do not know how we are going to manage funds. We have no state pension either. Some jobs coming his way seem a perfect fit qualifications and experience wise, and he feels he can contribute a lot to that job, yet after he applies for it, we just do not hear from the recruiters or employers. Its only God and prayers that can help us at this stage.

  2. know how you feel

    My husband is right now where your husband is at. Finds jobs that he is qualified for and has had some really great interviews, but to no avail. He is in his early 50’s and we’re beginning to wonder if his age has a lot to do with it. He offers great experience and a work ethic that many do not have now. It can get very discouraging when you’re applying and searching for work and they don’t call you back. We will pray for you as you and pls. pray for my husband to find work as well. The scripture says, “He owns the cattle on a thousand hills” and also, “my God will supply your every need.” Praying………….

  3. God isn't helping us

    We have been unemployed for 2+ years. God isn’t helping us and neither is the economy. I don’t qualify for aid, because I don’t meet the poverty level. Why? Why are we not being called in for jobs. i have 25 + experience in an industry that is thriving and hiring all the time. i get called for interviews, but have been matched up to “someone younger” and more “qualified”. Tell me how a 25 year old is more qualified than a person with 25+ years or more experience? I do not have a degree, I am a 48 year old male. My fiancé is fed up, and tired of seeing me down in the dumps. I applied to McDonalds and other food service, and was turned down, because I am overqualified! Even for entry level positions. This is not right. Who do I turn to? where do I go? Jesus is not my answer, nor is praying. I don’t see money falling out of the clouds. My faith is down in hell…and its getting worse everyday. No you can’t comfort me because I can’t afford to listen to what you have to say!

    But, I am glad I wrote it down today!
