  • Looking for 8 yrs? Im sure if you were looking you would have found one somewhere by now. Try McDonalds, Burger King, your local unemployment office, and I dont know maybe daycare in your home? You dont need any exp to do what I just listed.

  • You're not giving us much to go on. What are you looking for? What are YOUR expectations? What are your skills? Have you been on interviews? Have you ASKED why you didn't get the job when you're turned down?

    Go to your local employment development department (unemployment) office. They can provide you what you need...go TOMORROW.

  • Like the other poster said, go to a BK or Mcd's. I was so freaking bored before my last was born and my mother was living with us I just got a part time job at mcd's to get out of the house. Even though they don't pay good it also felt good to have that extra spending money for my kids and I was able to meet some new folks.

  • I have been in the same boat , about 4 years ago. I am a single mom and I am self-employed.
    It all depends on what type of job you're looking for. If you are in search for a work at home position or opportunity. Here is a link of a great company that has helped me for 4 years , now.
