i didnt land a job man, i already have one. i just get so sick of these limp wristed liberal types who infest american colleges, and i see a post like his and it literally makes me want to vomit. if he really wanted a job he could get one, he just doesnt want to work. period. i dont know why it bothers me so much but i guess i just get the feeling that those types are destroying america and no one is raising a voice, they have all been handed participation trophies since they were four years old and feel entitled to everything they have, i'm sitting here working 100 hour weeks and going to school, and its not that i hate them or have distain for them, it would just be nice to know that when i get out of college i could be dealing with people who have their head on straight, but you dont see it any more, they dont even know how to carry on a conversation face to face

Re: i'm unemployed and applied at 50 places this week and landed a job
When you have leftovers of a good meal, what is your complete, predominant decision/priority tree?

For examples: do you repackage the meal in basically the same presentation for a lunch the next day? Or do you typically aggregate for making a soup, casserole, breakfast fry up? How concerned/paranoid are you for different food types before you get them refrigerated? If you transferred things like condiments from store packaging to table dishes, do you put them back in the original containers, store them in the tableware, or move to resuable plasticware?

Thanks OP!

Re: i'm unemployed and applied at 50 places this week and landed a job
OP has no idea what it's like looking for work. If you have worked for many years and are then laid off, and you spend your days applying and interviewing and talking on the phone and meeting people in person and preparing for an interview for a week only to be dropped for a person on an H1B visa who may be less qualified but who can be paid much less.... Well, it's stupid to make a blanket statement about folk here who want to work but for some reason can't get hired.

Maybe it's because
-they are over 40 years old
-they don't look pretty or young enough
-they have been out of work for a few months
-they are missing one skill that the job description requires and the company isn't willing to train
-they live in a town that isn't hiring
-they don't speak 3 languages
-they look a little desperate because they've been interviewing for months
-their clothes are a little ragged because they're out of money
-they look a little tired because they've not had a good night sleep in weeks since they're worried about paying the bills
-their credit report sucks because they have no income
-they move a little slower since they have been sick and have no health insurance...

You can't just assume people are out of work because they are lazy. The world is different now and getting a job is not so easy. You are lucky you are working. Be grateful. Some day it may be you who gets laid off through no fault of your own.
Then you will understand.

listen, i'm 22 ok i'm not some elder, you work when you can, never turn down money that you can legally earn. you will have to sweat, you will have to lie motionless in your bed at night because your body is so sore that you cant move. thats all part of the experience. if you want to be happy then go bust your ass at work. you wont start out being a millionaire but if you have the right work ethic, you will find a way to make a comfortable living for yourself and your future family and maybe even becoming a millionaire. thats the american dream brother, that if you bust your ass, you can make it, you can survive. you may not be driving lambriginis but you will be happy

Lucky you, at 22. You still have your health and few obligations. Wait until you are older. People will look at you differently. They'll see you as a liability. As someone who may get sick more often, or who may need higher pay. You will find yourself let go from a job after working hard for years.

Re: i'm unemployed and applied at 50 places this week and landed a job
last year i was job hunting and saw a help wanted sign at a gamestop and i know games so i applied. About 1111 people showed up. There were 2 lines one for part time cashier and one for full time manager so i applied for the full time position. Out of those thousand or so people i was one of 8 people who made it to second interview. But i didnt get it.

I have a high i.q. And a college education but the jobs in my field are nonexistent. Im an artist and art jobs are few and far between in a tough economy. I expected to be some sort of advertising executive by now. Im still paying that college loan. I currently have a full time factory job with benefits but it pays about what the average mcjob pays. Times are hard. Try not to be a dick if you are fortunate enough to have a job.

One thing Ive noticed is that after a couple of rejections from job applications and interviews some people feel very bad and start applying less and seeking out less.

They dont like rejection so they become less motivated and start blaming everything else but themselves.

Getting a job is easier than keeping one (or, getting a ~good one).

I personally think jobs are passe; it's time we all start our own businesses, and be our own bosses. The government should help us out with that, as much (or more) than they do the Corporations and the Bureaucrats.

Since Bureaucracy and Corporatism fail, it's time to shift our national resources aways from those leeches and start funneling it into Individual citizens. That way, we ALL get taken care of -- for realz, not just for pretendz.
