  • Depending on what skills she had to match the entry level position. Everyone needs a chance in my book.

  • Im interested in this question as well, since I am almost 25 and have had 2 jobs, working at the gym daycare, and an office job for 1 month! Yikes, that'll be me in 10 years! Heres a bump!

  • It depends on the job and the requirements. It also depends on her availability and reliability... just like any other applicant.

  • yeah, i would hire her before some teenager, and places hire irresponsible teenagers all the time. shes probably never had a job because of motherhood or something like that. maybe all her kids are in school now and shes bored. i know when all my kids are in school it will have been 10 years since i worked and i hope someone out there will give me a job.

  • yeah, why not..i'm sure you could train her..she may not demand as much in pay starting out as someone with experience would
