(Right) Rae Lynn Schneider, 61, looks at job fair literature with a Loyola University graduate intern before a motivational discussion and support group at the National Able Network in downtown Chicago, Illinois on March 24, 2009.  A retired former Chicago Public School teacher, Schneider returned to the workforce last fall working briefly in sales at American Girl Place, a job Schneider said she loved but given its seasonal nature Schneider has been forced back into the job market and is retooling her resume and building her skill base with the assistance of National Able Network programs.
