My heart goes out to you. You may have to leave the country to get a decent job. Someone I know had to move to Hong Kong because of her husband's job. She has been offered three jobs in in the month she has been there.
I certainly hope none of you people here shop at wal mart.
Before anyone talk trash about past, current and future admins and blaim the world for his or her own failure, please do your best to provide solutions at the same time.
I'm 64, have a BA in accounting but no one is hiring someone that is almost ready to go onto Social Security. We are over the hill, but are dependable, hard working, and willing to work any hours just to make ends meet. I would give anything for a job. I have tried temp work but as soon as you get them caught up there's the door. I'm still a viable person with lots of experience to offer but no one wants a grandma. I was told to just take my SS and enjoy the rest of my life. I don't want to quit working. I enjoy working so why don't people understand this.
Do not give up and trust God to provide your needs I was unemployed for 17 months and On Monday I start a part time job as a two year old teacher in a pre-school.Regina From Bakersfield
I have been unemployed for over 3 years and even the temp jobs don't work out. I'm glad you have found a job. I just hope and pray that I'll be able to say that I'm employed.
With 12.4 percent unemployment now and all those unemployed, benefits-sucking losers of course voting to legalize pot, wait until you see what the state will look like after they legalize it. I predict 33% unemployment within five years and breakdown in basic services unless they come to their senses.

You're trying too hard. 'Dey akchully spel lik dis' without periods, commas, etc. The sad part this is usually white kids on forums and when you try to correct them they reply with "Dis da interwebz not skool lol, I can rite how I want." This is an actual quote from one of those kids /facepalm.
THIS IF *&^%$# WIA IS OUT OF MONEY IN MY STATE. I LIVE IN THE THIRD OR SECOND, NOT SURE, WEALTHIEST STATE IN THE NATION. I HAVE BEEN WORKING OVER 30 YEARS AND HAVE SENT COUNTLESS RESUMES, ATTENDED CLASSES, NETWORKED AND EVERYTIME I CALL TO SEE IF THERE IS FUNDING, IT IS ALWAYS "CALL BACK IN TWO WEEKS, THERE IS NO MORE MONEY". I WOULD BE HAPPY TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL, COMPLETELY CHANGE IF THE FUNDING WAS AVAILABLE. INSTEAD I AM TRYING TO RAISE THE MONEY ON MY OWN. THERE IS NOT TONS AND TONS OF MONEY OUT THERE FOR SCHOOL, JUST SOME AND LESS IF YOU HAVE A DEGREE ALREADY LIKE ME. AN OLD DEGREE THAT IS NOT USEABLE. WHAT THEY DON'T GET IS THERE ARE PEOPLE COMPLETELY ON THEIR OWN, NO PARENTS,STRUGGLING TO KEEP THEIR DILAPIDATED HOUSE AND DRIVING A 17 YEAR OLD CAR. YES I QUALIFIED FOR FAFSA BUT IT DOES NOT COVER EVERYTHING. FAFSA IS USELESS AT ANYTHING BUT A PUBLIC SCHOOL BECAUSE THE PRIVATE ONES HERE WANT THOUSANDS MORE. I WAS ALL SET TO GO TO NURSING SCHOOL AND AT THE LAST SECND THEY SLAPPED WITH A $9000 BILL. THEY TOLD ME TO APPLY FOR ANOTHER LOAN AND AT ONE THEY RECOMMENDED. OBVIOUSLY A VESTED INTEREST. I TRIED OTHER SCHOOLS AND THE HOURS ARE HORRENDOUS AND THEY ALSO RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT WORK? IF I COULD GET AWAY WITH NOT WORKING WHY THE HELL WOULD I BOTHER WITH SCHOOL? WHAT THEY DONT GET IS YOU CANNOT GET A LOAN WHEN YOU ARE UNEMPLOYED AND I SURE AS HELL AM NOT GOING TO PUT UP MY HOME AS COLLATERAL. I HAVE EVEN APPLIED AT FAST FOOD PLACES, DEPARTMENT STORES, DONT HAVE A PROBLEM WORKING ANY PLACE BUT AS SOON AS THEY SEE YOUR AGE, YOU ARE PASSED OVER. I DONT SMOKE, I AM MATURE, A GOOD WORKER AND DO NOT HAVE TATOOS AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR THIRTY YEARS. I AM ANGRY, I AM GOING TO GET RETRAINED AND WORK NO MATTER WHAT BUT I AM MAD. THANKS NALIA FOR LETTING ME POST THIS.
They are telling us unemployment is down. I was told by a person at the unemployment office the stats only show the current week for applications. They don't count all the people that are still unemployed after searching for viable employment a year or longer.
This is the same old crap that people spew out every time they run articles like this. I am so sick of seeing "network" and "stay busy". Why not say something like this: "We live in a nation where you the unemployed have been screwed. Join forces, demand union representation, fire or better yet, "lay off" every Republican you can find, quit sending jobs oversees and bring jobs back to America. Oh, that would be too hard wouldn't it. Oh well, let me just stay busy, on and really network at the unemployment office. This crap from useless bottom feeders drives me crazy. America, you have been screwed by corporate America and billion dollar CEOs. They owe us.
