What should I do?

I've been having a bit of trouble for the past two months finding a job, every job that I've applied to here in Michigan did not contact me back. I used to live in PA where I had experience in warehouse working and I had no problem finding a job then but ever since i moved back here its been a struggle because my aunt was so kind enough to let me stay here she just wants me to get a job and I'm searching still and nothing for now and I dont want her to feel like im not doing enough or trying hard enough cuz I'm not a lazy guy, I take care of my business and whats needed. Ive also been battling between picking a job or starting my own career with my art and start creating T-shirts and such but the only thing to keep that is going is I need a job to fund that possibility. I don't want to let people down and I want to make something of myself and let that bright star within me shine. What should I do?

Hi Dontez Lee , there's a few things I can recommend to help you with your job search!

1. Fill out your Jobcase profile

Having an updated profile with your location, work experience and skills really helps the community assist in finding new opportunities for you. Employers are looking every day for new talent - make sure you are on their list! :) If you need a little bit of motivation or encouragement, take a peek at Jobcase's #hired hashtag, it's full of positivity and great tips for landing your next job!

2. Use our job search tool

It’s easy! Just follow these steps:

  1. Click on “Jobs & Companies” at the top of the page, or head over [here] (http://www.jobcase.com/jobs/search)
  2. Enter a job into the search field where it says “Job Title, Keywords, or Company”
  3. Include your location + click the magnifying glass to search
  4. When the list populates, click on the ones that sound like a good fit to learn more + apply

First of all, Michigan is an awful state, Pennsylvania is a better state to live in. If you can, move back to Pennsylvania. I would apply for jobs in your area, all of them, until you got hired

It is more than likely your resume' is not passing the automated scan and just being kicked out of the process altogether. I was taught a completely new way to draft a resume' at my commercial driving school - it made a huge difference! And is totally against the traditional methods of drafting a resume'. It's going to the website listed and literally highlighting, copying, and then pasting the exact verbiage onto the resume'. Check out the picture I've attached. Read the directions over a few times and it will make sense. It works for ANY job type you are trying to apply for, not just a CDL driver job. Do add college degree info if not applying for a CDL driver position. Again, this is not my invention, it's the method my driving school came up with. The school also working with the military to start using with soldiers leaving the military, because it has been so effective. Give it a shot, it worked for me and it can't do no harm. Go back to the other way if it doesn't work for you.

If there is a State office of employment services oh, you should be able to go there and get some assistance in looking for a job and how to look for job, help with your resume, Interviewing skills, etc. In Ohio this office gets jobs that aren't posted anywhere else so and we give you another resource. I know you probably don't want to work in fast food, but it seems like at least around here they're always looking for people and it would give you some money to maybe start your t-shirt business or at least give you some money until he can find something better. Good luck to you!

Try not to get discouraged and keep on grinding. Maybe try asking friends and relatives if their jobs are hiring. Go into fast food restaurants and businesses where you can fill out an application on the spot. Hang in there and good luck.
