and now am sitting here waiting and hoping for a call - though fact of the matter is, there are zero jobs available in not just this temp agency, but
the other 8 around the vicinity. I live in the middle of no where as most know. Meh, I don't feel like rehashing my life and what I have and do not
have and why I can't just 'get work anywhere'. It's all legit issues and stuff.
Just feels great to be hired, yet cruddy to be hired yet zero jobs are available for the unseen future.
I'm putting in a resume for the local
library here in town for assistant librarian. 15 hours a week but it will definitely help out while I wait for that factory job to open to me. I hope
it's factory. Most all around here give 12 hr days 6 to 7 days a week at like 10 to 12 an hour. That's a LOT of money to me. A LOT.
Proactively seeking work yet zero to be found. I wonder how many are applying for the librarian job? I know that the moment mcd's or subway here in
town have an opening, they get over 300 applications for it. How do I know? I know the managers there. Why can't I get hired? Misdemeanor theft from
cashing a work check back in 2002. Like I said, I won't regurgitate my tale as it can be found easily from past posts.
I heard jobs are coming back.
I have yet to see this around here in Southern Ilinois. Matter of fact, THE biggest factory here in town is picking up and moving to Kentucky soon. My
town will be a ghost town cuz of that.
All I want to do is get off food stamps, out of housing, and be ME again. argh. Total argh. I'm tired of false hopes in the job front. It's too
ridiculous to have one or two openings and people from 70 mile radius' come to apply for them.
You know the economy is in trouble when that crap happens.
I had to call my kids grampa to borrow 100 dollars off him for necessities. I done sold all I own already. No movies, no books, no tvs in the home, no
radios. Sold a couch, a table, an old pc, printer, clothing. I really have nothing else to sell any more. What do I do now? Tried starting a house
cleaning business. This is a very poor town and no one can afford it. period. No car. No license. Gotta pay 1200 to get that back. I got one house to
clean a month for 35 dollars.
......................................................... one little break would work nicely. I hope the temp agency comes through OR i get that job
at the library. Something has to give. If one person tells me to sell my laptop, I'll e-kick them. That is THE only entertainment I and my son have.
I have a good imagination but seriously. I can't stare at the walls all day when not job hunting. No. Laptop stays. Grateful the neighbor lets me
leech off their net.
I had ZERO issues finding work in 2008. I even became shift manager at Arbys - and they knew of my misdemeanor for theft and still gave me a chance
and I loved the job. Was there til they closed and I had to move down here. A friend drove us down here. Since the job economy bs, I can not get hired
anywhere. til i found that temp agency, god bless em. So I'm in the door. Just waiting on work. Every day I pray they'll call me and tell me I'm
set to go to so and so and work.
God I miss working. I miss coming home exhausted. I miss the joy of payday. I miss the rewards of working hard. I miss my self esteem and respect.
I miss complaining about long hours too hehe.
Something has to give. I really am grateful for the food stamps and housing but seriously.
