You may either be searching for a job or know some one who is. The Ladders.com, a job site for $100K job seekers recently posted an article for mature job seekers, “How to Overcome Age-Based Excuses.” Glad the Ladders is addressing an important topic.
On the flip side, and with a dose of laughter for this “economic winter”, there is a job posting of sorts for those of at least 60 years of age. OldJewsTellingJokes.com also require the joke-tellers to be Jewish and to tell their favorite joke.
“Storytelling is a Jewish tradition. You’ve probably seen Fiddler on the Roof. Whenever they ask the Rabbi a question, he tugs thoughtfully on his beard and says “let me tell you a story.” Then they sing.
Jokes are like stories, but shorter and funnier. Old jokes tend to have a stigma, but they only last if they’re good. Some of the best ones provide a window to the culture of a bygone era. They can reveal the concerns of a generation or even the generation before. Anxieties of coming to a new country, of prospering, of assimilating, of having families, of fearing and worrying about, well, everything. Humor was and is the ultimate anti-depressant.”
Laugh and enjoy – it is good for your health.
