Sorry about your misfortunes brother. Kind of in the same boat (no pun intended) minus the bad record. I haven't held a real job since I got out in
2008, instead, I mentored for two years, did some school for that GI money and got sick and tired of it, and have written papers/done other peoples
homework, and done odd jobs here and there for money. But now I am tired of doing that and need to find a real job as well, but I can put these things
on my resume and don't have a record like yours. I hope you are able to find something and make ends meet/find a way to sustain yourself.
Here are some ideas I have:
1: Keep finding and doing as many odd jobs as you can on Craigslist or wherever you find them, it is still money.
2: Find and nab free stuff on Craigslist and other sites and turn around and sell them (this is actually quite popular and people have been known to
make a killing doing it...I would, except I live in the middle of nowhere).
3: Maybe write some articles for websites that pay by the article, there are many out there. (I am looking to do this myself as a starting point into
4: Have you used/do you still have your GI Bill and are you eligible for the Post-911 one...it pays E-5 BAH. I am assuming of course your seperation
did not take away that benefi, if it did, I would find a rep and appeal it. I have a friend that got kicked out for an alchahol related charge
(refused counseling/treatment after an incident with a cop) and he had to fight for his GI Bill.
Hope these ideas help.
