Odds of finding a job

I've been a stay at home mom for the last 8 years,I now have to find a part time job because our land lords raised the rent.

I have no collage education just a high school diploma,my resume doesn't have any refences (the have all moved on or the place has closed down.) I can only work 8:30-2:30 as I have to pick up both my kids from school and drop
Them off.

I'm willing to work fast food,clean toilets anything really. What are my odds of finding a job?

Depends on what's available in your local area.

No I've never volunteered for anything. I didn't know that could go on a resume.

Your "willing to do anything" attitude will certainly help, although I'm afraid you face an uphill battle.

How many hours per week are you needing or wanting to work? What were you doing before you became a SAHM?

Slim to none with the specific availability. As someone who hires people, I can get over lack of experience if you have a good personality. At least for an entry level position. I can train almost anyone. But, I would never work with that availability.

Not much,it's mostly a large oil town and right
Now only a handful of places are hiring. I hope that changes once the kids go back to school.

Your best bet might be fast food, with limited availability it might be hard though. Is working evenings/nights and weekends a possibility for you?
