  • have you filed for umemployment? That would help until you found work. Have you gone to the temporary agencies. I swear by them. They pay good money and the larger companies use them to screen potential long term employees

  • I'm sorry. I'm not really an expert on that subject but the website,, seems to help with things like helping credit. The website, to shorten because it was way too long), is very helpful for finding good jobs. I wish you the best!

  • Try if you aren't looking for Work From Home. If you are looking for WAH I have a list of companies that hire home workers on my site

    I would usually tell someone to look in to a home business because they will earn you a great income over time that will pay you forever, but I don't think that's what's best in this case. Home businesses take time and cost money, neither of which you seem to have. So, if you visit my site, skip past the businesses and go for the jobs.

  • I know how you feel. I repsonded to your last post regarding this. I looked everyday all day for 6 straight months! I finally was offered a job last week. I was 1 of 70 applicants for this position! Anyway, can you get on unemployment? Are you getting cash assistance from public welfare? What kind of jobs are you looking for and have you applied for. I was on unemployment so I wasnt that stressed but I can tell you this, if I wasnt I would of been a waitress and worked my tail off because they really do make decent money and its quick!

  • How are you conducting your jobsearch? Is your resume current and well-written? Are you writing coverletters for each position you apply to? Are you on Linkedin?
