Rejection letter from K-Mart

I got a rejection letter from K-Mart.

I'm 45 years old. I guess they aren't interested in hiring me. The letter said they decided to "pursue other candidates." I can only assume they mean younger candidates.

I was figuring on supplementing my meager farm income with some part-time work. At least I would be able to get a house. I guess not.

On the upside - I passed the civil service exam for a position at the University of Illinois, however, I'm 3 points from the range of qualifying candidates.

I'm not perfect and I'm not so undereducated that I can be exploited either. I guess in Springfield, Illinois you have to be one or the other to get a job.
