Seeking a new source of employment.

Good job but pay is not making the cut. I can't live on $11.00. An hour and rent has gone from $930.00 TO $1100.00 PLUS my utilities and car payments and insurance. Taking public transit doesn't help because the scheduling does not work with work schedule nor does it run as much in my area. Is there a better way to solving this issue? I know I'm not the only one dealing with this issue. Thanks

jarvis,

For starters, thanks a bunch that you come and talk about your issue that you're having, we're more than happy to help out. Here's that I would recommend for you: Sit down and lay out all of your expenses, every grocery bill, rent, electric bill, any type of payments that you're making, write them down or put them in Excel (which I think is a whole lot easier). Next write down all of the salaries that you're making (if you have a significant other that's with you, put that in if he/she is living with you). This way, you can visually see what's going on, what needs to be done, and this helps out in seeing if you need to make a short term investment or long term investment. For example if you're going to pay 1100/month on rent, than you have to calculate how much you're making during the week and calculate the difference. If you're putting in more for rent than anything else, than I would recommend in moving rather than staying there. Find a place that would be cheaper, but in a good location. DO YOUR RESEARCH (not yelling, but emphasizing the point). That way you can make the right adjustments needed and not wasting time to find a job. Sometimes you will have to multi-task, but if you can do it, than you can get not only a new job, but start making the right investments in order to have a better area. Finding a job is one thing, but making the right adjustments first will help you out in the long haul. If you're still wanting to find another job, than you will have to "double" up on tasks to make it work. I will say, it will be overwhelming at first, but if you keep going and keep applying at companies, you'll find one soon. keep going and we're all in this together. Good luck and happy hunting.

You may have to think outside the box, and really figure out what do you want to pursue in life, if college research a college to attend and if you do not have the funds sit down with the school financial counselor, maybe you want to start a business, also for jobs look for work at home jobs you may have to work several depending on the income you are looking for, try Live ops, arise, TTEC, Nexrep, ACD Direct, contractworld.jobs, working solutions-website-http://vyne.workingsol.com, Sutherland has some work at home jobs, Websites to sign up for for work at home jobs-Rat Race Rebellion, Real Ways to Earn Money Online, I could go on.
