Yeah, once you get a job, hold onto it.
I'm working on getting a bartender job at the TGI Fridays right by my house.
I had an interview last thursday, I hope I get the job :3

Finding a part time job is proving to be very difficult for me...age seems to make a difference and there is very little going on in our rural community.  Also, not being a native is strikes against me as well.  Trying to find a work from home thing that will work but haven't found anything yet.  They say this is a man-cession (as opposed to a regular recession) but with the recored unemployment at more thabn 10% I think it is just going to stay this way for a long long time. 

Iagree with supptrashcan....if you get at job, keep it.  I quit mine after 25 years foolishly thinking I could get another and so did my husband.  What a couple of idiots we were!!!!  Well, supptrashcan, hope you got the job..

Having trouble find any kind of job-full or part time.  Yet they say finding jobs have gotten better.

The gov't says the job market is getting better, but people still have hard time finding jobs. I wish there are more jobs are available, and companies start hiring more people.

In my area, I can't find a job, part-time or anything. I've been trying to find a job for nearly 3 years now and no matter what, I can't find anything! It's getting really hard to stay optimistic about anything, anymore.

It's been two years since I last had a job; I'm at the point where I will get a full time job and just work around finishing school part time. I'd like to finish school, but no money for travel/food/etc is making the job a priority over my degree.

Not really.  I am looking for myself and have come up empty so far.  I am trying craigslist, but some of the jobs out there are sketchy.

I've pretty much stopped looking all together - either part time or full time. I've got money coming in from the different freelancing sites online, but that's it. I don't see it getting better any time soon, which is why I'm so thankful to sites like this one.

Try caregiving. Always jobs for any of your scheduling needs if you do not mind elderly folks and are not grossed out by the body or cleaning of the body. It doesn't pay well and it isn't prestigious but trust me you can get a job in a hurry if you are willing to do what is needed. This is a very high demand area and a high burn out rate.

My advice go into home care if you take this route since you will be working one on one instead of taking care of 15 people at a time.

I'm a college student as well, struggling to pay tuition. (kicking myself for choosing an expensive school  :BangHead: )

My small-earnings plan for the next 4 years  (it's actually losing me $ currently) is my blog and forum  blog.nvsounds.com and forum.nvsounds.com  It's a place to talk about Music and Philosophy, as well as many other various topics.  If your interested on Music or Philosophy, check it out!  :peace:

I'm eventually planning on selling Custom-Built speakers (I am an audio designer) on the main site, but I have been too busy with school to have time to build.

I agree. I have a full time job so i shouldnt complain, but my husband cannot work. we lost about a third of our income when he stopped working. My job is really flexible so i could work something part time as well, but finding something part time that is also flexible had been nearly impossible. Many of the jobs i have run across researching online, are pretty sketchy. sigh

I've been searching ever since I graduated high school. I'm presently going to college, but finding a job, let alone one that corresponds with my schooling hours, has been ridiculous. Even without experience, they'd say i was over-qualified because I'd do well on tests they'd give (places like Home Depot) or that 'they weren't presently hiring anybody' even though they've had a "We're Hiring!" sign outside of the building for weeks.
