man what is wrong with employers? do they not have maners or are they just imcompitent(sp sorry)?

i have been looking for work since 12\8\02 and have just found a temp part time job.its ok, just 9.00 an hour but its something..

im also trying to get hired at a local supermarket and have been to see them 4x and need to go back yet again.its really upscale and i would make almost as muchas my old job and they have benifits i dont have to pay for but man give me a break..

im so fed up. i cant find anything really good..im too determined to give up(completely) but why cant i get a break..thank god for extended unemployment..and the pt job will make it strech even further..

i have worked 2 weeks in total this whole year..and they say there is no recession..

just venting, im ok just really annoyed.i cant wait for this economy to pick up..i would like to be able to save money againand get off and stay off unemployment.. i have collected twice in the last 3yrs.

That really stinks! It really got me PO'd to see the president on TV at a press conference last week and told the nation that the economy is picking back up. It wouldn't suprise me to see him in the unemployment line himself Jan 2005. He is just so clueless about the regular working person sometimes...

Anyways, I will keep both of you in my thoughts and hope you get a much deserved break real soon and can get back on you feet again:hugz:

Sorry girls. I've also been job searching since 12/14/02.

It's so discouraging. I had a lady tell me yesterday not to take it personally. She said our town is very high for unemployment right now. That doesn't help much when you're about to lose your house and you can barely keep your phone on.

I have 8 weeks till my extended unemployment runs out. When is this gonna turn around and be happy days again?

I'm sorry you are having such a rough time finding good work......
Employers don't want to pay money for qality help and we all suffer for it...... I have had to walk managers through an interview when I have applied.... Good luck, I hope things turn around soon..... for everyones sake......

i'm sorry you are having such a hard time finding a job. Have you tried a temp agency, nowdays a lot of companies don't hire people except through them.
