I have a job as a volunteer at Red Cross. You should see if those sorts of volunteer organizations have any positions. Some of them are paid.

Right here -raisehand
I've had a few job interviews but all of them just stole an hour of my life and never gave
anything in return. I've still got a year of school left tho and supposedly now is the best time
to be in school. If you can't find a job I'd say volunteer to get experience or try grad school.

Also don't feel bad, a lot of people I know are in the same situation. Our career fair was
extremely depressing in that the companies there explicitly stated that they were taking
resumes but weren't going to conduct ANY interviews.

Like the first guy said, try volunteering. I'm going to volunteer at the Cancer center serving lunches. I don't know if that will help me find a job later on but something will happen.

And by the way college degree IS crap in many cases. Notice, the bulk of jobs are about serving people and making stuff, ..
That's why i'm going to go into the apprentice program offered by the WIA program thing. You can get on the job training while earning minimum wage.
But at least you get something

Hi There !!

Job searching is very important. You can try with some recruitment agnecies, they can help you. But you must choose those who are getting their commission from employers.

Hope it helps icon_smile.gif

The secret is volunteering and knowing people. I've had a few friends land jobs by just volunteering to work for free at places. Also, doing some social networking never hurts.

Same here. In fact I gave up my day job about a year ago and I do online (and offline) marketing full time now. I actually enjoy it more than my old office job. I am looking for agents to help me out in some Asian and US cities so if anyone is interested please pm me and I'll send you an info pack.
