Did he separate recently? Is he a reservist?
Why did he leave active duty? Did he have a job set up that fell through? I have heard that happens a lot. It sucks. How long has been out?
Quoting Missdaminate33: No he reserve now he use to be active duty
Maybe he should consider going back active or perhaps moving if the job market is stale in your area. I know it must be rough. Sorry your family is having a rough time finding a job. Another suggestion would be to go to the bases airman and family readiness (or whatever your branches equivalent is if you have a base nearby, if no base perhaps try the unemployment office in your area), they may have some leads on some local job fairs or employers looking for employees. Encourage him to put himself out there in the community and have him volunteer or get involved in your local area having connections really does go a long way. Lastly, if he doesnt have an education this would be a good time to explore colleges or trade schools or look for another skill perhaps. Does the reserves have TA or GI bill? What about you, do you have any goals?
Quoting Missdaminate33: We wasn't together when he was active . He Finnish school n collage . He did and doing everything but no luck . He been in the reserves going on 3 that's how long we been together
I understand, I did read where you said that he was "over qualified". A person can never have to many skills or to much education. I started out as a radiology tech but when we PCS'd I couldnt find a job for a year in my career field so I went back to school and became a nurse. Sometimes when life gives you lemons you have to make lemonade as the old cliche goes. Perhaps he can build on his resume or skills in some way to make him more marketable. Use what he knows already to his advantage. Employers today like employees who are diverse and well rounded. I know it's tough but tell him not to give up! Take advantage of this time to improve himself and continuelly look for the next opportunity. Also, I read your other reply. I understand being a stay at home mom is a great deal of work and many families functions very well that way. However, if he continues to be unemployment you may need to sit down and reevaluate things and decide what you each can do to turn things around. Best wishes.
Welcome! What is his experience and education/training in?
