Are you working?

I use to complain about going to work, now I wish I could. I am currently out of a job, living in a state with major unemployment. Now I know i could move but many other people are in the same boat I'm in. How would you know where to go, what states still have jobs and not hundred of folks out there looking for work. Are you lucky enough to still have a job or like the rest of us looking, hoping and praying one will come along. I think the older you get, the harder it gets. What do you think? Let me know how many of you are working or not, it will make for interesting conversation and who know maybe we can help each other.

You are currently out of job.Why dont you try online earning.Though you may not earn your livelihood just by starting off.You can earn something just to hold on.There are some sites which post the jobs and you can bid on them and earn after finishing the job.You dont need any monetary investment either.Its just your time,skill and internet connectivity.Once you market yourselves well.You can start earning a steady stream of income.And also you can register with some sites like mylot,wherein you can earn as well as be a part of the community where you get across some novel ideas to earn.Its just that you dont have the job.So you have time to explore oppurtunites and learn.Learning can be fun and so is earning online.

Thanks for your comments, I am currently investigating that possibility. It is difficult to tell which sites are not scams. I know I have the time now I just need to find the sites. Thanks again for your commnents.

I haven't worked for a while, October of '07 actually. I quit my job though as they were working me very hard and my fiance told me that I should quit, he pushed it but didn't at the same time. We've looked for work, but haven't found anything. To be honest we didn't look very hard though, but we're both happy with earning on here for now. I know there's a lot of people losing jobs and needing work, but my fiance and I do not have any bills to pay, and are only saving for our wedding, to help with a honeymoon / vacation that my fiance's parents are planning, and to save for our future. I hope that you can find work though, and I wish I could help more. Looking at your classifieds, or even trying to find odd jobs here and there I'm sure would help a little! Have a wonderful and lovely day!

I have been pretty much out of work for almost a year. There is no jobs in my area and its really frustrating. I have found other ways to make money while I am looking. I pretty much do my online programs and make enough to sustain ourselves while I continue to look.
