Where are all the jobs?

I just moved back here from moving to wisconsin for the past 6 years. I am a Interior Designer by trade and would love to get back in it. I need to find work quickly as I said I just moved back here from out of state. I had no choice but to leave my younger son with his dad because of the state laws. I was a stay at home mom until by husband would get a bug and kick me and my older son out with no where to go. So being unemployed and no money saved...I need a miracle to happen NOW! I'm very smart and love to work and I'm very responsible, I just need to prove to myself and my husband I can do this without his help. If anyone knows of a place that would even be entry level or is in the field of Design that would be perfect. I'm also daily on all the 'Job" sites. I thank you for your help. Christina

  • Perhaps you should email this question to the President. Not being rude, just keeping it real. He said he'd create 3 million jobs and turns out we've lost over 7 million jobs. (he said that last night on tv)

  • You might offer your services on line with your own web site. At some point a house or business will need to be show cased for a sale.  http://www.indeed.com/q-Interior-Designer-jobs.html   The real in demand jobs are Web Design and Programming. Check with Realtors trying to sell homes.

  • Have you researched at home opportunities? i am a member of www.bendmoms.com
    They are why people are able to make extra income and eventually work hard to work 100% from home. Just a thought :)
