  • The online sites are useless.. Seriously I did'nt start hearing back from anyone on them until 3 to 5 months later. As was the situation wiht my boyfriend. Try Craigslist. It's where we both got our current jobs from. You may have to read thru a bunch of bs before you get to anything worth writing to but there's ussually a few inquiry worthy ads.

  • Not sure where you live, but and have tons of jobs, and you can post a resume on-line as well. Most companies have on-line applications, but I'm sure they receive thousands/day - always follow up with a phone call, or a printed application/resume/cover letter.

    Networking is the best way to go - most people get in for interviews because someone they know knows someone somewhere! Hope he finds something soon.

  • I do not suggest filling out job applications online, as they never seem to get looked at! You are better off going to the establishments in person and filling them out there!
    I wish I had an answer for you about who would be hiring for you locally!
    Have you and your husband ever considered starting your own home based business?

  • My husband joined me in my work at home biz. If he fills out apps on line, he will have a slight chance, since about 3000 others are also doing the same. I can show you what we do from home if you are interested.
