About a year where I work, I'm still only part time. I am wanting to get promoted and have done everything in my power to get noticed, such as giving presentations and doing extra work. We are still on a hiring freeze and there's still rumblings about more cutbacks (as if we haven't had enough already).
Anyway, I've been laid off nine months (and couldn't find work) before getting hired at the job I have now. Even in the beginning for several months of working where I'm at, I was sleeping in my car. Now I'm sleeping either with the graciousness of other (under their roofs) or sleeping in the video room. I don't make enough for housing of any sort. I have been looking for full-times work ever since getting hired. Still, I'm unable to find some.
I've been all over the Internet looking for advice (including CM) and getting the same old, same old about retraining, commuting ,starting my own business, and so forth. Well, I don't have money to retrain (and I don't qualify for financial aid or grants), I already commute across state line, and I already have had a failed business that I lost money.
The truth is, I need to relocate seriously. I'm in debt & My daughter is in college & has already extended financial aid. I am very broke and really need to consider looking into homeless shelters.
What cities would you recommend that are homeless helpful and have plenty real job potential (meaning new job regenerative w/$40k & above)?
