At my wits end.

Tried raising money to start a local small business. No luck. If you start a business where I live you are seen as having a mental health problem or seen as a nut job. Aka no support. It is a common view here that you should be working for someone else even if that someone else won't hire you at all. Thanks to all the work being chain retail and base their hiring on if you have good credit or the so called right personality type via personalty tests.

Leaving me very few employment options. Mainly work no one else will do that is a dead end job that pays minimum wage with heavy labor. At my age I can no longer do that kind of work.

On top of being over educated for the local job market.

So I am back at square one. Very frustrated. Have no idea what to do anymore.

Jade, I like that you want to work and pay your own way, which makes us feel positive and better about ourselves. I own a staffing company in Harvard Sq and we have jobs. Call my Express Employment office at 129 Mt. Auburn St. Our # is (617) 945-9751 to schedule an interview. Tell them Carolyn told you to call. Think about what you can do and what you will not do. We have good jobs available for all skill sets.

Fast food is always good as a "get by" job while you're looking for something your really want to do. Without knowing your qualifications, I'd say that burgers pizza, etc restaurants are a pretty safe bet.
Hope this helps

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 as managers just based on education. That includes the food service end of retail.

Who cares my degrees are worthless degrees, the bottom fell out on the animation world, unless you have major industry experience when you graduate college and no one has that. Employers see MBAs as wasted degree now. As it does not prove you know a thing in their eyes.

People tell me to start a business, but that is not an option. No money and even if I did. My counties business regulations make it extremely hard and expensive to start one. (They wonder why they have 10+ percent unemployment rate here)

I am at my wits end.

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.

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.

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.
