I am living as an anglophone in a francophone city. Technically it is bilingual but most people won’t hire you if you don’t speak fluent French.
I have been working with the government employment program to do a French integration so that I can get a good job here. I have been here five years and finding Anglophone jobs is painstaking and I have to take what I can get.
I’ve sent out more resumes and have been searching my neighborhood to find something close to my house. 5 days ago

I received a job offer from the interview I had yesterday.
The problem though:
It’s not at the office I had been told (it’s an hour away now).
The advertised pay was not offered, offered much much less.
The location is 1/4 mile from my ex boyfriend who is extremely troubled.
Sadly, I have to turn this one down. 2 weeks ago
Odd experience. I was one of those folks who supposedly did everything right. Worked my way through school, went to a good university, graduated with a decent G.P.A. had experience as a supervisor. Worked up to manager. Got other areas of responsibility. Ended up as a Director on a national trade association board.
Suddenly you have too much experience. And the degree is common now. You are older than most of your peers. And suddenly no one wants you anymore. You are too expensive.
So you look. You try. You apply.
Usually no answers.
When someone wants 5-10 years experience, they do not want 20-30 years experience. G_d forbid.
So you start doing odd jobs. One little consult at a time. You advise on development. you advise on OSHA compliance. You advise on meeting regulations. In your own industry. In related industries. In new industries.
And suddenly you find that your odd jobs are now a growing concern. With tax reporting. Record keeping. Trade Associations. Standards. All the stuff you used to do for others.
