A Question For the People who say there are jobs everywhere

United States

Some people say there are jobs everywhere to be found. All you have to do is look for them. Yes it is true that I may be able to find a job in a larger city but the question is how am I going to get there? In a smaller city such as the one I live in, there is no public transportation other than taxis which are expensive. Subways and buses don't exist here. If I have been out of work for a while, how will I be able to pay for the gas to drive to a larger city? There are bills that have to be paid with the little income we have coming in already. I can't disregard bills such as water,electric,gas or car insurance. The businesses in smaller cities such as the one that I live in are closing down every day. This is just a hypothetical question for those who throw those kind of questions at me and it is the reason that I am doing sites such as mylot to make an income from home.

there is some type of honesty in what you said, i do believe that its harder to find a job in a small city than a big city. do you think that you can make an income from site as mylot? cause for me its just to spend time a improve my communication skills, how can you make that possible?

It is why I do multiple sites at the same time. As I am doing triond, I am doing mylot. Earlier, I was doing instantcashsweepstakes at the same time that I did unique rewards. I won't make an income off just one site but each bit at each site is money to put towards these bills.

I like uniquerewards,triond,pinecone research and the survey sites. I do the best from taking surveys. Others say associated content pays well so I just signed up there and I will be checking them out soon. The survey sites that I use are mysurvey,pinecone research, synovate,valued opinions,myview,and zoomrewards.

The US is facing unemployment rates that were last seen during the great depression. California has an unemployment rate of 12% and 7% of the workforce is not even legal. One thing we as Americans need to do is bring jobs back home! Support local companies and the small guys. I respect you, you have not given up on finding a job and expecting the government to bail you out but you are trying to bring in any income you can. Keep it up and I hope things improve for you! Have you ever thought about maybe selling online?

I have thought about it and my husband and I have talked about it, but we really don't know what to sell from home. We are looking at options and trying to find a way to make ends meet.

If you have friends that buy off Amazon often you can become an affiliate. Its pretty good pay if you ask me but depends on your traffic to your site, who you cater to etc.

The truth is that there are hardly any jobs in this new economy. Small businesses and factories shut down in small cities and big cities. Obama claims that he's trying to create jobs but he's really killing our economy even more. This man doesn't care about anyone but himself. The sad part about it is that many Americans won't realize how bad everything is until they're homeless and out on the street.

To tell you the truth, you won't get much in a big city either. I should know because I actually live in the suburbs of the big city shacked up with my dad. I was at a hospital job for about two months and because there were no job openings as the job training site I was at my last day ended on February 25th. I was happy because the job ended at the end of February but I'm a little frustrated because I've been doing all I can to stay afloat. I've basically given up on finding a commute job and that's why I chose blogging, but I wished I could have done blogging months ago or years ago.

Linda, I am so with you on this one. I do have some interviews tomorrow. In the last year and a half I have only had temporary jobs. I am out of unemployment. I have done some freelance work and contract labor. There are jobs everywhere, but most of them I am physically unable to do. You wanna see me harvest corn in 107 degree heat? Or work inside a warehouse with no a/c? Wish me luck. I just revised my resume.

I hope your job interview went well. With my health condition, I can understand because I am not supposed to sit longer than 30 minutes at a time or stand longer than 30 minutes at a time. The blood pools in my feet and causes the blood pressure to drop. It is a heart condition. I have been trying to get SSD but good luck with that one. I do have lawyers working for me.

Hi, lindaharding627..! :) In my opinion, It is true that jobs are everywhere, there are a lot of job vacancies in the newspaper, and there are a lot more if you search online. The fact is, honestly, we are not looking for a job, instead we are looking for the money. Thats why we find it hard to get a job.. :) I have gone to this seminar about financial revolution, and the coach told me that money is just an idea. If you are looking for money, then you should think about what can you do in order to get the money come to you. Then you will learn how to buy things you want even if you do not have the money. :) I hope you will find a way to get the job that you want and be happy with that. Have a bless day! ^^

There are not many job vacancies in this small city. It is true that we want the money, but the jobs that are around here are mostly skilled jobs and you have to have the college training for them. The city I live in is smaller and most companies are leaving here not coming here. By the way, I am in college and will graduate soon.

Quite true that there are added expenses to finding jobs in larger cities and away from home. Sadly too is that there are probabilities of finding some sort of job but the pay is too low and the expenses in getting their are not feasible. I certainly can understand as I have never worked closer then 32 miles from a job, so to and from was a weekly gas expense of $180.00 in itself and that when the gas prices were low. So yes a great deal of disadvantages in looking for work in a larger city when you do live farther away. It is not easy in the city either as many are willing to sacrifice the larger expense to have a job, so the job market in itself here is quite scarce.

People who have no sympathy for those who are out of work don't try to take an individual's situation into account. Don't let them get to you. Gas is nightmarishly hard to pay for if you're broke. Not everyone has a relative or friend that can help them, nor can everyone afford to pick up and move or any of the gazillion suggestions those without the problem like to throw at you. You're wise to be working online right now. Have you tried writing articles? Article writing for the Yahoo Contributor Network (used to be Associated Content) can bring in a pretty good income.

I think the best way is to relocate. You need to seek more opportunities in another area. Looking for jobs is hard because you are not qualified to do some of the job vacancies. Just don't lose hope and keep looking. God will help you if you do something for yourself too. Have a great day!!

If you are amenable with having as an option by going for online jobs then you can search the web for freelancing jobs. That's where I get my bread and butter from. Sorry though that I cannot state the site since that is not allowed here in Mylot. As for your bills issue learn to take each problem one day and one step at a time of you will feel overwhelmed as I did a few years ago. Even if I have a day job, when I lost my side job, my day job cannot shoulder the expenses that I have. The result is a set of countless loans. I am glad to say that I am paying for them one at a time. And by early next year I have settled almost 2/3 of them.Happy job hunting. Just prepared your resume and cover letter.

I think the only way you can get that job is to relocate to that city. You dont have to take your whole family with you. Just rent a cheap room or apartment in the city near the place you work. Preferably near public transportation lines if your company have bus or train stops near it.
