I lost my job back in October 2008. Can any help me find a job?

I'm a single mom of 8-year old. I am 44. I'm getting unemployment & food stamps.
I know I am not the only one in this predicament. Any suggestions? I only know retail. Was working at a convenience store for 4 years. Dept. store 3 years.

  • Do you have full time access to the internet? You can work at home if you do. It's not quite like full time income, but you can make a couple hundred dollars a week if you put the time into it. There are no fees. or

  • I know it isn't what you want to hear, but fast food places are always hiring, or grocery stores. It sucks, but it would be something for a while until you find something that you want to do.

  • It is possible to stay home and make money. To be able to start your very own home business for less than $30 is worth taking a look. I stay home with my 4 kids ages 5 and under. I've teamed up with a wellness company. They've been in business for over 23 years and they've been helping families escape the financial rat race. If you feel you have between 5 and 15 hours a week to work a business, then you can make money. It's tough raising a family in this day and age. I was tired of scraping by; I was tired of saying "no" to everything. Now I don't have to. I'm not saying I make millions but I do earn a decent amount.

  • Hi there!! We are looking for more online chat hostesses. Pay average is $35.64 PER HOUR or more chatting online. The pay is every two weeks. You would be an independent contractor and would work at your leisure from home. The categories are adult and non adult. There is no cost to you whatsoever, just an online application to fill out. You will need a webcam for this. The next earnings check goes out on March 16, 2009 and if you hurry you could have nice money on that check. I have been doing this for 7 months now and is my only source of income so I know it is real and the money is super fantastic!!!

    If this is something you might be interested in then copy and paste the link below to be directed to the application and FAQ's Page.

  • I am a work from home mom and I am partnered with a Wellness company that distributes eco-friendly products. I do not sell. I do receive a check once a month. I do have a website that you could go to if interested......

    This company is a member of the Better Business Bureau.
