Most places wont look at my resume with the number of jobs I have. But I keep applying hoping someone might, and Im sure I will get something eventually. I was telling my friend I applied to a local vet office it says evenings, and some weekends and students welcome. She was saying I should quiet one of my jobs and get a better chance. I told her unless she will be paying my bills than no I wont cut that income out, just to possible be looked at for a job.

It is really a mind blasting to find a perfect job. I am sure you will have it soon. As they said, it will fall at the right time and place.

That is very true, sadly in the time waiting you need to work your butt off to support yourself.

Why how many jobs do you have? Maybe if they pay you more than in other job you can tell them that if they give you the job you can quit one of the othr jobs

I can completely see what you mean about not giving up a job with the hope of getting a new job because there is no guarantee that you are going to be getting another job and you have to do what you can do to make sure that you are able to pay your bills. I do believe that there are some jobs that will hire someone if they are working multiple jobs, but they do also look at the fact that there are some people that are spreading themselves too thin and that could be the thing that is working against you.

If you are applying to a full-time position that would be replacing these jobs, why mention all of them on your resume? Tailor your resume to the position, highlighting only the recent employment experience that is the most pertinent to the sort of position to which you are applying. You don't need to quit your jobs. You just need to quit letting potential employers know about all of them. When they see that you have so many positions, they may think that you are overextended, that you don't really need the job and/or that you don't have any real commitment to building a career, since you are doing multiple part-time positions instead of committing to just one full-time position and devoting your time and energies to that. I can definitely see how that could make a potential employer a tad skittish.

I don't blame you. I mean maybe one of your jobs will offer you a great deal more and it will be worth it, but until then various jobs, it also makes it less stressful in a way. Doing the same 9 to 5 day in and day out, people need variety.

Do you have to tell these places about all of the jobs you already have? I mean, what would they do fire you for quitting once you had their job? I wouldn't disclose all of the jobs and see if they will hire you that way. Anything like that is OK to do as far as I know. If it hurts your chance of getting the job I mean. It's sort of dishonest but not like lying about some other types of things. You could always quit the other jobs if you get another better job you're aplying for.
