It is very hard find a job, even part time, especially full time. I am working 2 part time jobs now. Both in the medical field, which is big here in NY.  Try looking into a job agency. You could also look into group homes. They need direct care counselors or direct support specialists on every shift - a.m., p.m., overnights, relief, weekends. . . .  I work weekends only at a group home. You have to be able to work with people with special needs; most run a criminal background check & u have to have a driver's license.  The pay is decent, some offer medical benefits to p/t workers who work a certain # of hrs.  Good luck!   :thumbsup:

I'm a full time student, and am currently having a HORRIBLE time finding a job.  No one is hiring!! It is very frustrating.  Anyone know of any companies that are currently hiring??

I was having a hard time also until I realized I[ needed to try harder, I called every place in my area and also walked in asking if they were hiring. You gotta let them know you're out there and willing to work, you gotta call people every couple of days and keep reminding them. Don't just keep trying for one place, try for as many places as you can, someone is out there who will hire you. Have confidence, all hope is not lost.

I finally found a part-time job after two years of looking, so I know how hard it is out there, Have you tried some of the retail stores, they don't pay alot but many hire extra people for summer help. Good luck to you, hope you can find something ! ;D

I wish I did. I have been out of work for at least 5 years. I looked for work for about 2 years and then had to stop looking. There just wasn't anything out there for me and my health had declined further which didn't work in my favor when applying anywhere.

Really?  Are you just discovering that no one is hiring?  Where have you been?  The economy has stunk for years.  Good luck on finding a job.

Any luck finding a job yet?  I noticed that it has been a while since you made this post.  However, since it is getting closer to the holiday seasons you may have a good shot of finding employment at department stores.  A lot of department stores hire extra staff to help through this time of year.  They may let you go afterwards but in the meantime it is an income.

When I was looking for a part time job I had a hard time. I finally had to take a job that was only 3-4 hours a week. It was barely worth it to even go in! In the next month or so all the tax places will be starting to hire, I worked for Jackson Hewitt when I was in college.

No, I so hear ya.  I can't find a part time or full time job and the only ones hiring are for manager possitions.  I was talking to this one friend who is a manager in the produce section and se was talking about how she was training these people for three years and they still don't know what to do but when I asked her about a job she told me she only trains for a month and if you can't do the job by then they let you go.  I still can't figure that one out.

Sounds like she doesnt want you ask her for a hiring favor. :(

I have always had a job so but sometimes have been hard when I had a lot of medical problems.  I have set up at flea markets in the past but they are not doing good now.  I am now making fried peach pies and they sell good.  Think outside of the box and you will find something that you can get some extra money.  My son and daughter in law lost their jobs on the same day as their plant closed down.  I had to help them and her family did too.  Hope everyone has a good day and may God bless each of you and keep you safe.

If you have a job now, hold on to it cause jobs are HARD to find. I never had a problem finding something to do but now , this is crazy. Been looking for 3 years all i got was temp. jobs, 90 days max. and i'll take anything right now. Without a car makes it worse. Good luck  :thumbsup:
