Sallie Mae is double garnishing me now. They have two arms coming at me. So now working at my par time minimum wage job. I am being garnished 30 percent of my income. Thanks to my inability to get anything better. I am even poorer now.

Tell me again why college was worth it? That is even with me having a MBA and BFA in animation. College is a scam. It is not worth it. All it gave me is low wage work. Made me even more unemployable then I was... see more

I am not looking for a new job for myself but I work with staffing companies to help them share their open jobs with Jobcase. Most of the staffing companies I'm speaking with are not hiring or are not hiring very many people in January.

But from what I am reading online, it seems January is a great time for job search -- this made me think of the Jobcase community:

If you are actively job searching how are you managing your search? Are... see more

I worked my way though undergraduate school, mostly manual labor and warehouse jobs, and came out debt-free. Pursued a graduate degree, but was unable to finish the degree. Now I have tons of student loans which will be calling in soon, and no good prospects. Applied to about 15 jobs via online job postings (mostly labor and warehouse), and no bites yet. Any advice or recommendations?

Keep looking. Consider substitute teaching and use that four year degree. You can always finish you graduate degree... see more

After being unemployed for 7 months, I have finally received a job offer. However, due to delay in starting and the natural wait for the first paycheck, it will be at least a month before I receive my first paycheck. I am in difficult circumstances right now, and unable to pay my current rent. What would you think about asking my new employer for some sort of assistance in this matter?

You could ask for an advance, however since you just started this job that might set a negative tone William Snyder... see more

We all go thru experiences that can change our worlds for a moment..maybe take away that I can do anything attitude..which at one point we could..
How do we manage.not getting a job that best suits you or going deeper into debt.waiting for the right one.
We either go thru jobs and look silly because we have had to take what was there to stay debt clear..

We have all been there and it is not easy. I myself just make certain that my resume and cover letter... see more

When I moved to Atlanta, I already had debts. A low paying job doesn't benefit me especially when every month I owe $2,600 and. had worked 4 days a week was a disadvantaged to me. I expected. living in a big city would pay more, but I was disappointed again when I found out the truth. I don't undersrand why society in big cities cost more. and pai is SO LOW

I would suggest keep working those 4 days and go to school the other 3. Double win. A little bit of something is... see more
