42. I'm one of those millions in the same boat.

It'll be a few years before I hit 55, but it's the same damn thing for those in our late 40s to early 50s. I thought I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I applied for a job recently that was IDENTICAL to the one I was in for 20 years. The research was a little different, but I don't think there are many people in my field with the experience I have. I thought I was a shoe-in, especially since the person doing the hiring told me, as well as all my references, that I was a "strong candidate". Well, I checked my e-mail at lunch today, and there was an e-mail from this person. I thought, "Oh look! She wants to arrange for an interview!" Then I opened it, only to find that the position was filled. She didn't even give the courtesy of a fucking interview AFTER telling me I was a "strong" candidate. It's been like this for five goddamn years. I am so fucking sick of this shit, I can't take it any more.
