  • You both should continue looking. Whoever finds a job, have them work, and if it doesn't seem to working out, the person who is staying at home can continue to look for a job. But I would definitely check out the newspapers, craigslist, anything for job opportunities. There are always people hiring. Check out tips for interviews. Make sure when you go to an interview, you have the company researched. Ask questions. Research about the job that you're applying to. First impressions are so important. Good luck!

  • Go get on assistance, then you can chill on CM all day and still get a paycheck.

  • I think that you should take turns each day going out to look for work, like him in the morning and you in the afternoon. Whoever gets a job first goes to work.

  • Try going to a Temporary Agency around your area. Often they can help find jobs a lot quicker than you doing it own your own.. I've had good experiences with them and would recommend..just don't go to one that makes you pay for anything.
