Hi Darin: Thanks for posting to Jobcase! First of all, let me start by saying I'm sorry you lost your wife. It sounds like you're making a big transition, so the community is happy to help you find opportunities in your new town. As for your main question, I think a lot of agencies approach it from the perspective where education can be a fantastic tool for getting a better job, be it through a certification program or a degree. It's totally okay to let them know that you're not interested in continuing your education - you just want to do a job search! In the meantime, here’s how to see who’s hiring near you:

  • Double-click the Jobs button at the top of this page
  • Enter the type of job role you're looking for
  • Click the blue search button If you see something that looks interesting, just click View Job and follow the instructions to apply. Let us know how it works out for you!

Sorry to hear about your wife Darin. I'm facing similar challenges after being losing my manufacturing job I held for over 20 years. I understand schooling and training is tough to hear when you're facing financial obligations but it's not a bad idea to pursue some of those career training opportunities while your looking for a job. I found jobs fairly quickly through a temp agency. The assignments are 2-6 months but the jobs are consistent. The agency is labor ready and they have national offices. Try it out - http://www.laborready.com/jobs/list?city=elk-grove
