First just want to say thankyou for all the suggestions from everyone. I have been listing myself on several of the online employment agencies ,looking at the number of jobs they all claim to have it would seem theirs enough jobs for every american in this country to have atleast 2 jobs lol. Iit seems that i have a lot of work ahead of me to find a good match for employment of the position i want and being on disability , but words of hope to all , Never Give Up , and like my grandfather use to say employers arent going to come knocking on your door and say hey Mark your the guy we been looking for we have this great job with big big money for you please come to work please. Lol. Nope he said. You got to do the foot work and the phone calls and now the computer searches. When I was a young man when you could actually fill out and application and immediately talk to the person doing the hiring in person and sell yourself face to face it sure was easy for me, I got the job I wanted not bragging I was just good. Lol. Anyway I think I might have missed a interview online with manpower that was refered to me by someone on here because i didnt check my mail on time , I had so many I had to rest staying up all night working on computer , I forgot im not 18 anymore lol. But im gonna see if that window is still available with manpower. Thanks for reading. Have a good night
The biggest mistake is when I was getting dropped off at work with no ride home
