If you’re finding yourself in a bit of a bad financial situation these days, then join the club. There are millions of people who are struggling to get by these days. The economy has been slow to come around and jobs are in high demand, with not many companies hiring. If you find yourself in the middle of what seems like a hopeless job hunt, then be very clear when you read this: there is hope. There is always hope. While there are no guarantees there are ways to find employment, even in a seemingly unemployable time. Just follow a few simple steps.
Many people who are looking for work are afraid to ask for help. You live in a society where it is not often what you know, but rather who you know. So do yourself a favor and send out a mass email to everyone in your contact list and ask them about employment opportunities. Most times you think that they would have told you about an opportunity if they had one but most people don’t even know you would be interested in work or that you are willing to do anything. Don’t be afraid to ask others for help.
Set Your Sights Lower
This sounds bad but if you have been looking and finding nothing, then maybe you are setting your own bar too high. Even a job in the food service industry or a retail business is a great way to earn a little cash and help you try and make your next auto insurance payment. If you are diligent enough to get a job, then you might not be doing that for very long.
If all else fails, get yourself an internship. Many of them don’t pay but could lead to better paying jobs if you impress those in charge. Employers hate to see a good worker leave.
