Attention: seeking job in Miami, Florida

Hey guys! So first things first im new and so im still learning how to use this website. Now i personally am looking to find a job in the 33179 area. Right now i have a job but its not that great. I dont get paid as much as i would like. Im making 9 an hour and i definitely need to make more money to live here. I am looking towards the 10-12 an hour mark. As of today i only have experience in lifeguarding and being a call rep. My lifeguarding license are now expired and im working on getting it again to better my future. Just wondering if anyone knew any places that are hiring in my area. I have no car and no license. Im 22 and i just moved down here in miami in December from NC.

Full time position

I am looking for a full time position in San Antonio, TX and am frustrated by low wage offers. Doesn't anyone value 10 years of call center experience?

I used to ask myself the same question but I'm finding out that a high percentage of the job opening for senior career job seekers with 20 or more years of industry experience typically go unadvertised. Company's use a very different recruiting process for those positions if they choose to recruit outside of the organization; and that's a big if! These are very limited jobs openings with a large candidacy pool so the competition is high. What's the specific feedback your getting from your job applications?

Please let me work...I can do practically anything

I am a single mother and had brain surgery and couple years ago. Until recently, I was unable to work and my memory is spotty to say the least. I just began earning a little money online from freelancing and I need help. I am willing to work extremely hard and am tired of being told I'm a liability. I have taught myself to create websites, I have been in Virtual Assistant/Clerical environments and put my all into everything I do. I love helping people and here's what I need your help with please. My grandparents helped my son and I so much financially after the brain surgery. My 93 year old grandpa is gonna have to get heart surgery on February 24th, 2016 and I have been unable to become successful or even get my son and I a place to live and I promised myself I would do everything I can to show him and my grandma that their help means the world to me. I need them to know things with my son and I will be OK and that I can take care of it.

Does anyone have any suggestions or jobs that need someone's immediate help? Anything that pays will do, I can do almost anything and I will be grateful for any work.

I'm sorry, but I have only a week and I know people have their own problems t deal with and they probably don't think someone who had brain surgery and is considered a liability to most would be of any use. But I am desperate and will never forgive myself if I can't put his mind at ease knowing we'll be alright before his surgery.

I will make everyone who is nice enough to help proud to have done so. Please forward to anyone who might let me work immediately. I work online so I can virtually assist anyone in the world. If this goes nowhere I still can't give up. I will make my success out of nothing but determination, hard work and always continuing forward.

Thank you in advance to anyone that has taken the time to read my cries for help. Please feel free to respond with any info. Thank you.

Rock Bottom has NO Spring!

Thought I finally found water but only ended up with more dirt! I sharing this in hope that people can avoid making the same mistake out of desperation. After months of searching for a job in management and coming close to wiping out my entire savings account I chose to dumbed down my resume and apply for a job way below my qualifications. October marks my 3rd month for a small company overwhelmed with bad management, disgruntled employees, and a poor career outlook. My self confidence, attitude, and hope of getting back on my feet again is fading into darkness and affecting my mental health. I feel stuck! I think I would have been better off waiting a little longer for a more suiting job opportunity. How can I overcome spiritually, mentally, and physically from this rock bottom situation I feel I’m in right now?

How can I overcome regrets over settling for a low skill job?

After months of job searching I took an entry level maintenance job which I’ve had now for about 3 months. The hours and pay are okay but I keep thinking that I’m wasting my education and potential. I fear being stuck here for the next 10 years with no career growth.
