I've been laid off and have been applying at temp agencies, work forces, department stores, restaurants and fast food restaurants. My last deferment request had been denied on my student loans. Just today I found out this bad news. I'm in overdraft in my checking account because of the withdrawal. I have no money.
I have networked where I live and the surrounding cities, but no one knows of any open positions. My daughter is in college and she even asks me for money since unemployment is 12.4% where she is at.
I'm getting frustrated and sick whenever I'm hearing of military dependent preferences from ACS and other employment agencies. I am so sick of military wives getting jobs solely because of who their married to (venting). Us civilians need those jobs DESPERATELY!!
Anyway, I've been going to charities, getting free food (but this doesn't pay my rent). I've been trying to get charity money for rent, but I haven't heard anything. People tell me that the process is very slow.
Quite frankly, I'm days away from being homeless (& I've been a bookkeeper, web designer, event coordinator & a consultant). Still I cannot find employment.
I've been harboring for months an idea of just leaving to another city in the middle of the night to find better economy and opportunity.
No, I don't have family. I was invited to move in with my dad in Midland, TX, but he kicked me out because he didn't want tennants that he couldn't have sex with (no joking)! He offered me one month, but this wasn't from his heart, but from law making him, so I went back to the state I lived in.
I am in very deep trouble. So I need a real job, not a work at home job to save my soul.
I need info about being homeless, where is the best place to live in a shelter and get a job, best place to network, and so forth.
For someone who's really been through it all with homelessness, what would you suggest for me to do?
Yes, applied at temp agencies, have not been picky (fast food), and networked my butt off! (Not to mention the huge amount of gas I've spent driving around just filling out applications)
