It's the Economy. Period.

Jobs are very bad right now. I see it everyday, people with degrees in many subjects come to us because they have lost a good job.

People with 10-15 years work history are being let go because of their salary level.

There are no longer Career Opportunities... people are just happy to have some type of job to pay their bills.

I am so blessed to have always owned my own business and created a job for myself.

It is a very difficult time we all live in today. I just read this on another board, it is so true and also very sad.

Obama is GREAT at math.. He divides the country, subtracts jobs,adds debt for our grand kids to pay and multiplies misery for ALL our future.

When will it all end.

honestly I got recruited for my current job.. Company car,gas card and nice salary with benefits. You really have to knock interviews put of the park. As stupid as this sounds on the way to my final interview with my current company I talked to myself and practiced situations and how I would respond. I nailed it out of 5 other candidates.

So i'm being evicted in less than a month if i dont find a job. I've been unemployed for months.

On a daily basis sending out numerous emails to employers, agencies, websites, the works. As well as going around the shops handing in my CV.

At least 30 people apply for one job and the chances of me getting it is next to nothing. I really dont know what to do.

I have qualifications, dress well, the cliche you need to be employed but still cant fill the void.

Any advice is appreciated.

Don't give me this shit.

I have a MBA, a economics degree, and several professional certificiations...but since I lost my real job two years ago, haven't been able to find comparable employment. So now I work at a hardware store stocking lumber...sure, I feel like an idiot, but you do what you have to, to make things work.

More specifically, if you can't get a mindless job you're an idiot. If you are unwilling to do a mindless job, you're a slacker....and you don't deserve shit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22517012



Wow, awfully critical for someone who provided so little details. I live in an area where there are next to no 'mindless jobs'. I commute an hour a way to find a job that is supposed to not be mindless, but it still feels like it is. But if I were to try for a job here... I would be SOL.

Everyone always says to try McDonalds. It is actually DIFFICULT to get a job at McDonalds if you have ever tried. I've tried and never got a call back. They don't want to hire overqualified adults. They want to hire dumb kids they can push around.

Just like when someone posts they can't find a job, it's all THEIR fault. But when it comes to bashing Obama, unemployment is all his fault. Funny how that works!

Resumes are about the worst way to prospect for a job. People have been known to send out a thousand resumes without a single response. They should only be given out AFTER an interview, not before.

Look in the paper or online and call to arrange for interviews.

I always found a job at temporary job agencies which lead to full employment - but that was back in the '70s and '80s.

Always dressed the part, and knew the art of conversation. Through my contacts and associates, I found the job of my dreams and through THAT job, I found my spouse and am living happily ever after.

There's more than job hunting than a resume. You MUST be aggressive in your search. Dress the part, get rid of the excess body jewelry, tattoos, sparkly eyeliner, and weird haircuts. Be polite, be friendly, yet serious.

Employers hire people to make them MONEY. If you're not self-employed, this is the gig. Call it being a slave whatever, it's the way the world works.

North Dakota DOES look good. Are you ready to get your hands dirty? Go for it. Unless you're a doctor or some other type of needed specialty, you must be willing to expand your work experience in different areas no matter how many degrees you possess. Just sayin'...from experience. hf

oh i have 3 A levels from 1998 when it wasnt easy to get grade A. I went to university, (dint get the degree tho). Im a computer expert, a musician and smart. Still unskilled labour is the only thing going, unless you have experience in the field and are ready to jump into a top manager position to save on of the many failing companies right now.

We might as well legalize and import slavery. Sorry mother fucker but the working class has been the absolute backbone of this civilization and none of those technologies would exist without us. Now that we invented such a nice living style for the middle class and wealthy you're going to tell us to fuck off. Yeah I dont think so. The rich fags better start paying a decent living wage or there will be blood.

I'm sick and tired of attitudes like yours. "All you need is a radio. All you need is ramen noodles. All you need is a bicycle. All you need is one pair of pants and one shirt." People like you are going to be in for a rude awakening.

Knowing this person risks ridicule for doing so here yet still chooses to says much of his/her character to make a living and not expect handouts. I wish you were in the states, I personally have countless opportunities of very well paying jobs if you meet qualifications. Good luck in your quest. I hope you find an opportunity!

Dress nice, as for work every day. Follow up IN PERSON everywhere you have applied. Don't annoy people. Just ask if the manager is in and ask him if he's seen the resume/application you dropped off. If not hand him a fresh copy. If he has no openings ask if he knows who does.

Sometimes sales staff do not deliver applications to the manager. Always ask to speak to the manager when filling applications. Always follow up with a personal visit to meet the manager.

Treat everyone you meet with respect and ask everyone if they know of someone hiring. Anyone who makes eye contact with you desrves your best smile and that question. "I'm looking for work. Do you know anyone who needs help?" You never know what scroungy person will say "my dad needs a weekend salesman" or what dressed up businessman will say. "If you can run a photocopier and show up today I can pay you for the week. Its up to personel to hire you permanent."

People HATE sorting through dreary resumes. And they HATE working the phone to hear "yeah well my cat died its really not a good time for me" And they DREAD scheduling appointments with strangers who come in smelling funny, talking nonsense for a long time or just being weird.

So wear your work shoes WHEREVER you go--and be ready to look at a kitchen or file room or store and say "I can do this. I can start training now if its convenient". Be honest too--"you'd have to show me how to work this. It looks user friendly but I haven't done it before. The paper goes in here, right?"

Always close the conversation with "I'd like to work here."

If you are clean and normal and friendly and sensible and serious and personable and look and act like someone who wakes up clearheaded and showers and breakfasts and comes to work on time ready to work --and employers actually see you--you'll find something in time.

Lost my job 2 wks. after Obama was sworn into office. I'm a CAD draftsman in civil engineering. I haven't been able to find any work anywhere. I'm 58 yrs. old soon to be 59. Who the fuck wants an old man working for them. I'm fortunate enough to have a wife that works for a (sarcasm added) big bad pharmaceutical company. That pays her well as a research scientist. So we're not to bad off but we live from paycheck to paycheck. So now I just consider myself retired with no retirement savings. Lost most of it in the 90's crash and the rest in the 08 crash. So I just keep hanging in there hopefully I'll get job as a greeter with Walmart or Dicks Sporting Goods.

If its impossible to find regular work, you need to practice some skill. Enter the barter system, have or make something you know people want. Ive suggested buying silver and firearms since you can sell these later because it will allways be buyers and it will keep purchasing power in an economy going down.

Paint houses for people, help out with garden work, make jewelry, farming fishing and hunting, construction like super adobe houses - practically free to build and quite easy to construct but labour intensive, i'd sell my house if i owned it and had alot of debt i was in doubt i'd be able to make the payments and move into this to free capital to purchase silver and firearms, then i'd also learn a valuable skill by building so i could help others. You have to get out of debt if you have a house now.

In other words, you should enter system D:

If you suddenly find yourself in a situation where you have no work / income, no capital to invest in anything to generate an income i understand its hard and this is what will drive many into crime, but its what all of you have to prepare for, USA as you know it will never come back and i dont think most of europe ever will either.

October means hiring for Christmas Season.

Right now - well for the past few years, you are unhirable if you do not have a job. Yes this is a sucky situation.

So what you need to do is get a foot in the door, get hired on as seasonal help, then keep papering businesses/companies in your line of work.

If you are working at a job (flipping burgers, seasonal Christmas at a shop, etc) you improve your chances of getting into your line of work.
