What to do if what's out there (job wise) is not enough?

What to do if I'm head of household or just on my own two feet when I cannot fit into the available jobs?

I don't qualify for disability.
Work at home jobs are not sustainable enough for me.
I cannot move because of lack of support or money.
I need more immediate returns than starting my own business.

I just need to find a job that's right for me in an area with high unemployment. How do I do this?

  • Well for one I think honestly, you're looking at the wrong WAH businesses or jobs. You need something with a HIGH necessity, but without the HIGH EXTREME effort, that pays well.
    Although most of the party type businesses are fun and real, they dont generally pay more than fun money...for example I have a gal in TX who asked me for info, she said she has a successful biz with Scentsy, she cleared 450.00 last month..I replied I make that in 1 hour.
    Where are you located and what are you will to do or not to do. I really do make a FT income working about 20 hours a week, and I am home....I will be replacing not only my income but my DH's income as well...I ws just rewarded yesterday with consistent 12 mons Players Club consistency from my company..what does that equate to ..well a 300.00 a month cash car bonus allowance.

  • Do two part-time jobs. If you have nothing and need to support yourself, then you need to drop your expectations and stardards. If you NEED a job, then you should be willing to work anywhere for anything.

  • Expand the area of your job search and have a longer commute. Or search for jobs nationally that offer relocation reembursement.

  • There are lots of jobs out there, you just might have to move to get them. I live near St. Louis and the market is such that they can't find enough people to fill the jobs. Also, I heard that Pepsi in Marion, IL is actually hiring for drivers and providing the CDL absolutely free. What a great thing that is.
