I say this every time I see a unemployment post.

Go to a warehouse.

Any warehouse.

Say "I can lift 30 pounds throughout the day"

Enjoy your $13 an hour temp job, with a raise to $18 if you work there for more then 3 months.

(Bonus points if you simply say "I lift")

tfw I can't do that because I've got scoliosis and I can't lift **** heavier than 30 lbs for more than 1 hour or the pain would be unbearable.

You're serious aren't you? Well okay I don't know where you live but this won't work, the economy is **** and many capable young men aren't getting jobs, myself included. It's easy for people who are employed to tell others to get a job, as if it's that simple (it isn't) I busted my ass for almost a year trying to get hired and only one place has responded to me.

tl;dr If you want a job don't do what this guy said. Go EVERYWHERE bother EVERYONE, make an impression and don't give up. I know its hard and you feel worthless but trust me, if you persist you will find that job.

well, I live in the South of the US, so the cost of living is much lower. $8.15 goes much farther in Alabama than in New York.

I was unemployed for 3 months. I went to 6 different warehouses trying this, and got laughed out of the building, because I'm a 120 pound white girl. Was feeling pretty depressed for a while about the unemployment, so my buddies took me to a titty bar to cheer me up. Got offered a job as a dancer pretty much the second I walked in the door. I would have done it if I had the self-confidence to be a stripper.
User avatar #49 to #48 - sashathefolx (09/13/2013) [-]
If you got offered to be a stripper, try out at a club to be a go-go dancer. You don't have to be naked and your job is quite literally to dress sexy and to dance and make everyone else want to dance. Plus, if you dance and draw enough attention TONS of drunk guys will pay you fabulous tips.

Source: Best friend's mom was a go-go dancer for the longest time.
User avatar #50 to #49 - jajathezombie (09/13/2013) [-]
It's a self-confidence thing rather than a nude thing. I have no problem taking my clothes off, I just can't dance for **** . Seriously I dance like Ellen Degeneres.
User avatar #51 to #50 - sashathefolx (09/13/2013) [-]
So? The whole point is to dance and look like you're having fun. Your job would to get people pumped and excited to dance.
User avatar #52 to #51 - jajathezombie (09/13/2013) [-]
I know, and I can't do that because I'm quite possibly the most awkward person on earth. Besides, I have a decent job now. Not to say stripping or go-go-dancing or whatever wouldn't bring in some much-appreciated extra cash, but I don't really need it right now.

I started working when I was sixteen and I have had 8 jobs. There were some periods of unemployment but to be honest it was because I wasn't working hard enough to find something to provide me with some cash flow. Judging all the people on here I would say if you can't find a ****** job then you aren't working hard enough and living in denial about it. You aren't too good to do any kind of job... If Mcdonalds or Goodwill is hiring and you can't find anything else then work there until a better opportunity comes along. Dont be a lazy piece of **** that makes stuff up online to feel better about yourself. Well, i am out. I have to go work at my JOB and remove viruses for the next 7 hours.

Basically you.





Anyway, I'm assuming you don't live in a large city like NY where you can't get hired because there is always someone willing to do the job for less. I've tried a great deal. I just don't have the experience. AND YES. I've tried lying about my experience.
User avatar #55 to #38 - sparkieemae ONLINE (09/13/2013) [-]
What exactly is wrong with minimum wage? NY is the best place to end up employed. You start off with minimum wage and then you work your way up.

I've been unemployed since 2009 :T I've been trying to get by doing odd jobs and temp work. I've even been homeless for a season one year. Since I don't qualify for welfare, medicaid and whatnot, it hasn't been reason.
You gotta have kids, be disabled, or a veteran to get most of that stuff.
Also, the army isn't for me, so **** off.

Either setting your standards too high or setting yourself up for defeat by not thinking you're going to get a job. I've worked 2 jobs in the past 2 years first job I got after a week of searching. Minimum wage but I needed money. Got laid off a year after that and I found a new job within 3 days.

>Go into the store, don't ask for an application don't even tell them you're here for a job. Go up to an employee and ask to see a manager.
>Tell the manager you're looking for a job and can work any hours they want including night shifts and weekends, make sure you seem confident
>Manager gives you application in person
>Turn in application early the next day DIRECTLY TO THE MANAGER. Don't turn it in to a cashier or some **** .
>Get job
#40 to #39 - John Cena (09/13/2013) [-]
And don't be a faggot just asking for the application and leaving. Don't ask them for an application just talk with them and at the end of the conversation they will give you one. If they say they have online applications when you first talk to them steer the conversation away from that and just talk to them. Once they talk to you for a while and think you're a good to go person they will give you a paper application.

Paper applications > online lazy **** ones

yeah 5 applications a month is pathetic. When i was unemployed i was putting in multiple applications a day every day. Sometimes you need to take a long time for a single position if its one you really want, but dude after 8 month you should be applying anywhere and everywhere. I mean geez go work part time at target while you are looking for a more permanent position. It both pays the bills and looks better on your resume. As someone who has been in hiring positions, long gaps in employment make employers nervous. Also finding a job is like finding a girlfriend, a lot easier to do if you have one at the time.

Wear nice clothes that would fit in with what the employees wear. And ask to speak with the manager, shake his hand and introduce yourself, and give him your resume. Give him a 15 seconds honest breakdown of why you want to work for him and what you will bring to the table. for example "I just wanted to meet you in person. I know you see a ton of resumes, but I wanted to put a face with the name. I am very interested in working for your company and I feel I would be a great fit. I'm a hard worker, a fast learner, great with customers, and I get along well with all sorts of people. I dont want to make too much of your time, but i would love to meet with you some time to discuss this position. thank you so much for your time and have a great day."
#53 to #47 - sparkieemae ONLINE (09/13/2013) [-]
5 a month? Dude, c'mon. I lost my job two weeks ago and had it replaced in a week. But I applied at waaaaaay more than 5 in that week. You have to treat job hunting like a full time job if you want results. That means 40 hours a week. Also in my experience, GPA counts for **** . Talk more about experience you have working, and if you have none, make up places you've volunteered for. Now would definitely be prime time to kick job hunting into high gear, back to school so most people need more flexible employees aaaaaaaaaand Christmas is coming. not trying to be judgmental just trying to be helpful

I feel you. I live in Phoenix. 1.469 million people. That's a bit of competition. I got fired from my last job for smoking pot too, on the 26th of last month and I am EMPLOYED NOW and have been for a week. Now out of hours of searching. 10+ hella tedious applications (also a full time student), and 4 fruitless interviews I could have ended up with 0 jobs if I hadn't gotten lucky as **** and found the one that hired me.

I'm 99.100% sure that fast food doesn't have a requirement for degenerates. Jobs in food service may be looked down on but hey it pays the bills I can afford community college and my own apartment. no government assistance. Have you tried going in and asking to speak to hiring managers? They will usually schedule an interview on the spot if they are hiring and you already have an application in.

try careerbuilder.com and craigslist to see who all is hiring in your area.

How do you guys not find jobs? Honestly the only way to not find work, even in this subpar economy, is to be picky about what you do. I hear so many of my unemployed friends say that they don't "want" to do this and they don't "want" to do that. Well hey, nobody ******* "wants" to work, but you do what you have to in order to pay the bills. I guarantee that you can find work cleaning, doing manual labor, doing factory work, washing dishes, or any other menial, uncomfortable, and dirty work. It may not be glamorous and it will suck dick but it's not hard to find and oftentimes it will pay more than minimum wage due to the high turnover rate and the ****** nature of the job.

I'm working two jobs to pay my way through college. One is manual labor (chopping wood, shoveling gravel, washing boats, **** like that, often in subzero temperatures) and the other is late night bouncing at a club downtown. You can find work.

I have been out of a job for a bout 4 months. Mcdonalds and such told me i am overqualified and same with other fast food restaurants and the stuff which i have the degree's for say I don't have enough work experience.
User avatar #73 to #68 - nigeltheoutlaw (09/13/2013) [-]
The funny thing about fast food joints, especially McDonalds, is that they're so inundated with applications due to their reputation for hiring anyone that they don't actually hire all that many people. My friend is a manager at a McDonalds and he says that they'll get several hundred applications for only a few positions, which means a whole lot of people get turned away. Like I said before, you'd probably be better off looking into the jobs that nobody wants to do. Another good option is to go the the industrial section of your city and walking around, asking for work. So few people actually leave their home to search for work that it will reflect well on you and make you much more likely to be hired on the spot, even if it's only for lifting boxes or washing floors.

Obviously this won't work every time, and I don't claim to be an expert on finding a job, but this is what has worked for me and what has worked for several of my friends after they took my advice, so it's worth trying. You're unemployed anyways, so what else are you going to do?

I sell life insurance, mainly to labour union workers, so it's relatively stable, it booms in the spring during mass hires and changes, so then I can expect to make like $1700 a week.
Plus things like gas, electricity, even internet are tax write offs, if I go to lunch with a client, then that's written off, the only thing that sucks is that the head office is far away, meaning that I have to make an hour drive on the hwy each way twice a week
