Our local newspaper no longer prints help wanted ads, instead it directs you to a job search site. This site is incredibly difficult to navigate plus
you have to search by job title instead of categories. This means if you don't know the exact name of the position, you are likely to over look the
job posting, potentially missing out on job that you could have applied for but didn't because you had no idea the position even existed. The site
gives you the option to enter keywords and they e-mail help wanted ads that contain those keywords. The problem is, by the time they actually send out
the e-mail the position has been filled.
Job hunting is becoming more and more difficult as it is. Craigslist is filled with mostly spam and the legit jobs all want a minimum of 2 years
experience. I guess the best method for finding work is just to start going through the phone book and driving around town.
I actually had one job interview that asked me if I would agree to spend a minimum of 50% of my paycheck in the store. (department store) Several
other places I have applied at have told me they are only looking for people teenagers and housewives who are looking for extra spending money.
I have gone back to school to get a different degree but even then I don't hold out much hope. I think in this day and age you need multiple degrees
so that you have a larger pool of available places to apply too.
I have even looked into starting my own business but I have come to the conclusion they don't want people starting their own business so they make it
impossible for people who don't already have money or the credit rating of someone with a ton of money.
