What to do when you feel that maybe you are not in the right path but do not know which one could be?
I've been looking for a job for a while.. have been freelancing on and off for several years. Had some interviews.. got a couple of contract work out of this search... but nothing permanent. Do you think I should continue? I feel life goes by and I am in the same exact place.
I have been struggling with work over last two years. I am a painter by trade and have discovered some clients will look for the most ridiculous reasons not to pay. Its hurt my family when it has happened. Last two jobs they asked for refunds for things that had absolutely nothing to do with the painting I was hired to do.
Fellow Freelancers! (Graphic Design)
Hello, I am a Freelance Graphic Designer brand new to the Las Vegas Area. I am currently working as an Independent Contractor for a design agency in Summerlin and things have slowed down a bit. I started working for them 5 weeks ago part time 5 days a week and now they barely have enough work for 2 days a week. I know as a contractor things fluctuate work wise and a lot of smaller agencies hire contractors to simply "Catch Up". My question is outside of Freelancer, where do you find the most success picking up side jobs? I have been interviewing for several salary and full time positions but in the meantime I would like to stay busy and supplement my income. Sorry for the lengthy post! I appreciate and suggestions or insight in advance. Best Regards!
Unemployed once again...
So after finally obtaining a textile design job in October, I was wrongfully terminated on Nov 5th. HR’s reason: I asked too many questions and that I wasn’t the right “cultural fit.”
So, without any income whatsoever and no unemployment compensation, as they forced me to resign, I am left without any income to survive on and the holidays are right around the corner.
2018 has been my worst year ever as I’ve been unemployed for 6 months, only to finally be employed and then unemployed again...
In addition, I have clinical depression with recurrent thoughts of suicide so this whole situation is making me feel a whole lot worse. I've been in bed most of the time, I hardly have the energy to do anything. Some days I may have enough to look for work, but the moment i get rejection letters, the heavy wave of fatigue comes in and i'm back in bed unable to get up.
I am a graphic designer with over 10 years experience in the field, in addition, I have illustration and e-commerce skills as I run my own blog called cosmic funnies. I started this a side hustle but the income isn't steady.
I have student loans to pay which i can't even afford at the moment and my mom can only do so much as I await the savings from my retirement to come in the mail which will take 6-8 weeks to process. Until then, i am left with very little money from now to mid January so I hope someone will hire me even if it's a retail job..

Seeking Freelance Writing
I recently found myself unemployed from project management. I am seeking full-time employment, but meanwhile, also open to freelance writing and/or illustration jobs and obtaining or earning project management certifications to hopefully make myself more marketable and pay bills. For instance, I recently wrote and illustrated my own kids book (Here and There book): http://www.higginspublishing.com/store/products/category/69/childrens-books. Does anyone know of paid opportunities that I can draw from?
