Cynthia in Snohomish, WA writes to us: 

I lost my job last year on March 22, 2011. I still dont have a full-time job. I am trying and have had no success in getting a job. I am in the healthcare industry, but I am also 55 and I believe that is my issue. I do medical reception, patient registration and can do most any job in the financial counseling department.

I had a woman that I did a contract job for say it was pointless to go to school for the HUC certificate I wanted. Her reason was that I already have all the experience.I also think the industry is pretty hard to get into if you don't know someone.

In a few weeks, I will not be able to get unemployment, and still am unemployed. I really think that our country should not stop the extensions, but they have. We need help.

We invite others to write us or submit videos with their stories. Together we will amplify the voice of the Unemployed Nation.
