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…

Fedup, frustrated, Depressed.

Only jobs I seem to be able to get is part time minimum wage work. Does not seem to matter what my skills are or my education or past successes. Its been that way my entire working like. I can't seem to get anything better. People around me act like I have never worked a day in my life. That the current job is my first job. Low wage work then long periods of unemployment. So tired of it.

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…

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.

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.

Frustrated.

What is the point in being smart, well educated when most of the employers around me only hire based on how well you do on a personality test?

It's a bias way to rule out ppl who don't fit culturally.
