I am 50 years old and have had RA and have had various medications/treatments for 7 years. I haven't worked during this time but financial pressures mean that I need to return to work. The trouble is, having been out of the job market for so long and now there are thousands of 'healthy' people competing for very few jobs, I am at a loss as to know how or where to start in putting myself back on the job market. I used to work as a secretary but my skills are so out of date and I don't have many financial resources to retrain or update my skills. Does anyone here have any ideas where I should start and how I can make myself marketable in a highly competitive job market with a chronic disease like RA?
Thank you in advance for your replies.
