Job hunting and dont know where to start

Ok same with most people I am looking for a job but I dont care what I am doing as long as I can work Nights and Weekends any ideas on where to look. I have looked on craigslist and nothing I qualify for. I dont have a degree or really and experiance besides with waitressing. Thank you for your advice and Ideas
The reason I need nights and weekends is because I cant afford to pay child care and no I dont have family to watch my kids.

  • I don't know where you live but a 24 hour restaurant like "Denny's"? Who will watch your kids on nights and weekends?

  • If you are interested in working from home, I can help you. Childcare is the main reason I am staying home.

  • I am having the same problem.. the exact same.I'm not qualified for much and i have no degrees or anything. I've been looking for months now and no one is hiring. I've put in applications everywhere.. but it's like I'm contagious or something! It's really very stressful! I don't have any suggestions other than to keep at it... but if you wanna talk and commiserate with me That's cool! Pm me!

  • (Original poster) My husband is home nights and weekends so he would watch them. My kids are 1 and 3 so not in school yet or it would make it eaiser plus I can only get our car on the nights and weekends since my husband uses it for his job.

  • I work as a telecommuter. You work day or night whatever hours you want. I have a group dedicated to telecommuting and a list of companies to check out if they would work for you. Let me know if you are interested in the link.
