  • You need a job, join the club. There are over 600,000 people that are on unemployment right now. That isn't counting the millions that don't get unemployment and are out of work. And it will get worse in my city when the Chrysler plant shuts down for good, add 700 people to the 1000 that are already jobless.

    Sorry, but you won't get help from many people, there are too many that are in the same boat as you are.

  • I agree with the above posters. You could make good money at a home business. There are hundreds to choose from. You just have to be willing to treat it like a job.

  • Do you have a strong resume? Do you have more than one resume, each tailored to different types of position? Is your resume a boring laundry list or a narrative of what you have accomplished? Do you write a custom coverletter with every resume, letting a specific employer know what you can do to help them? Do you have a strong Linkedin profile? How are you conducting your job search? Do you check the "big three" and hope that something will appear? Less than half of the available jobs are posted on the job boards; Some of the others are on corporate websites, a growing number are on Linkedin.

  • What kind of home businesses have you tried? Did they all involve sales? I have a list of jobs that dont require any type of sales. Email me if you'd like more details.
