Still frustrated....

My area is economically a low man on the totem pole. Meaning we have about 10 to 15 percent unemployment most of the time. Regardless if the economy is doing well or not. What that means for me is I can't get a decent job that would allow me to save up to move to a better work area. Where there are jobs. What jobs there are here where I live are mostly low wage retail work. So that leaves me trapped in a area I loath to death and have no way out…

Yes the economy is good for rich people not for the poor if the economy is so good why is there so many freaking poor people…

Gratitude: The Trait That Defines Perspective

Hey Jobcasers,

Today I'd like to talk about something that seems a little difficult in our search for the next best employment opportunity: Gratitude.

Gratitude is perhaps one of the most difficult things to muster up during a rigorous and harrowing experience such as unemployment, homelessness, and similar events, but I would argue that it is perhaps the most important thing to muster up--more than hope, more than tenacity, more than even…

A question about programming/coding training.

Anyone here have any good recommendations on coding training in or around the Puget Sound area? Someone has offered to pay for my retraining and I want to take advantage of the opportunity.

Depressed.

I wish I knew what it was like to make more then minimum wage. All I get is low wage work. People wonder why I hate having Autism. Why I loath all the debt I got into in college. It never ends. All jobs I apply for unless its a low wage job with no other applicants. I never get the position. It matters not what the job is. Or people want me to work for free.

I need help, please.

Like many others, I can't find a job. The bills are piling up, my husband has dementia and Parkinson's and I'm his sole caretaker. I can't collect unemployment because they consider me a transient worker ( I hopped from one assignment to another). So what's the next step? Do I qualify for State benefits? Where do I find info on that? Who do I ask? I've been sending resumes, filling out job applications,etc. I'm at a loss and I feel like crying…

I am at my wits end.

What do you do when the only jobs in your area are retail and they won't touch you with a 10 foot pole because you are not an extrovert? Its getting frustrating. Only jobs are the retail jobs and thats it. I don't have an option to move to a different area with other job options. They ether don't hire me because I don't fit their personality test or they look at my education level and say you are to educated or we view you as a threat to our jobs…

An introvert can have a very good person and even be charming. Plus be very intelligent about what they are selling. If you can…

Kitsap has had a drop off.

The Kitsap county are has had a major drop off in jobs.... Little disconcerting. Maybe its a sign of more economic trouble in my area.

At my wits end.

Tried raising money to start a local small business. No luck. If you start a business where I live you are seen as having a mental health problem or seen as a nut job. Aka no support. It is a common view here that you should be working for someone else even if that someone else won't hire you at all. Thanks to all the work being chain retail and base their hiring on if you have good credit or the so called right personality type via personalty…

I have no clue what to do anymore.

I am stuck in my area because of family obligations. My area is all retail, I have given my all to try to get hired by one of them. No go. Over educated for my local job market. Don't fit the personality type they are looking for ether.
