Thread: Your job

  1. Your job

    It is Thursday afternoon, cold, rainy, and cloudy outside of Baltimore MD and I am starting to go crazy at home... I graduated from college in May and after actively searching for employment since the start of September, I'm still unemployed... I try not to stress about this since too bad since like 1 in 10 U.S. citizens are in the same boat but its startin to really suck. Im not asking for advice on where or how to get hired, I am just curious to know what everyone else on this forum does to make a living, or just some part time loot... if your unemployed, lemmie hear from ya too, maybe get some networking going, offer some leads.... thanks

    i am working my first job out of college in finance right now. instead of being selective, i took the first job i was offered. it's a good job at a good company, but i don't really have any chance of elevating myself here. for that reason, i'm looking for a new job, but am having a reallllyyyy tough time..

    Unhappy

    i'm a veterinary tech by trade,but i lost my job to the economy in march. i have looked since then,but every time i apply to a job,i ask how many others have applied. the answer is usually somewere between 60-100. i have taken on some odd jobs here & there for cash,helped my friend out doing autoglass repair/replacement. i seem to able to find odd jobs here & there enough to keep me barely going. this economy sucks & i don't see job hiring going up anytime soon.

    I'm a social worker in DC - I work with elementary school kids in at-risk neighborhoods. Not great in terms of weekdays off during hurricane season, but I get plenty of time off over holidays and during summer. The education/social services fields are generally pretty good in terms of job security, though we did have a ton of layoffs this fall due to mismanagement specifically in the District. Best of luck on the job search.

    I am looking for Finance now too, been in insurance for too long, but not having much success either. I still have hope though and will probably be moving back home down to the DC area, from Northern DE as things appear to be much better down there. Will have a Masters in April so hopefully, if something doesn't happen before then, it will help some.

    Sales for an online retailer. We are hiring and have been pretty much through the downturn but mostly technical positions.

    You can see what's open here click on careers. Makes for a long commute to surf but not too bad barring traffic.
