please settle this between my husband and i..........PLEASE!!!!!

my husband get $1000 in unemployment a month. he has been looking for work but nothing so far. our rent alone is $900. needless to say, i need to get off my ass and get a job. i have a bachelors degree in travel tourism and business management but right now i will clean toilets to get a little extra income. my husband thinks that's a dumb idea. he thinks i should get a career in my field of study instead of wasting time with bulshit jobs. so what do you ladies think? should i wait around for the perfect job or get anything right now to pay bills but continue to look for a better job?

  • If you really need the help then at the moment get what you can get. You can always keep looking for the type of job you want, but if you need the help now then get whatever job comes around.

  • How do you manage on $100 a month???

    How about you get a night job... any job. And carve out a couple hours during the day for interviews to find your "career" job. That way there is money coming in AND you are working towards the ultimate goal of a career.

  • I think that even a job that is out of your area of expertise is better than nothing. I have done cleaning, pet sitting, baby sitting, and other jobs here and there over the years. There is no shame in doing honest work for honest pay.

  • In this economy... I say take what you can get and keep looking for that perfect career job. I know a lot of people that have many years of school under thier belt working at starbucks for income and benefits!

  • It's an employer's market, so grab the bull by the horns and take whatever opportunity comes your way. Good luck!
