    They actually had me take the test for my current position as a standard to measure others against when they took the test. That was back when I was motivated and liked my job though.

    I think I took a personality test when I applied at K-Mart 15 years ago. I don't remember taking one anywhere else.

    Because I just need a job right now, any damned job. And I don't really have the type of personality that inspires confidence in employers. You shouldn't have to pass a personality test to work in a fucking supermarket. I don't need that shit.

    I did one of those when I got my job at Borders last year. I know I didn't answer everything truthfully, but if you can read the test for what it is, just fill it out like someone who's a good team player. That's what they want in big stores like that.

    I still maintain that those tests wreck havoc on yr sense of self worth, especially if it's already trashed. I'm just going to hang out in the depression, anxiety, etc thread for awhile.

    Actually, it's four. Akron is surrounded by them too. One directly to the north, east, and south of me and one quite a bit southwest. The attitude here is pretty scary. Almost everyone has this so-what?-no-future kind of outlook. I think a lot of it had to do with the collapse of a lot of major industries a few decades ago. Akron used to be the rubber capital of the world, now it's all been outsourced to other parts of the country/world. It left a huge vacuum that never quite got filled, although they're trying with polymers. Another major problem is a lot of people are backwards thinkers. They're extremely resistant to change and progress. This is true for a lot of the US, but it's especially true here. I think it's an extension of the "why bother?" attitude. There really is very little hope around these parts.

    I think C DUB YA is from Columbus if I'm not mistaken. I have no idea what it's like there except that Ohio State is there.

    Oh jeez. The New York Times seems to think that to conduct a job search, we should all include spending time on social networking sites (but only do internet job searches after dinner):

    In fact, Michelle Robinovitz, who has been a recruiter for 15 years and now is director of recruiting for an accounting firm in Atlanta, said she had stopped using job sites altogether and relied almost completely on LinkedIn.

    Is that real? I would totally do that if I was unemployed in Los Angeles. Although I'm sure being an extra is probably a lot more boring than anything I am imagining.

    Thanks for your advice corbo, but as I said before I don't really have any major expenses.

    I think it's all very relative, it depends on what sort of a lifestyle you lead.

    My sisters old b/f use to be an extra for shows like Desperate Housewives, The OC and some others....and from what he said, it IS boring. He said most of the time you just wait around bored outta your mind, and its usually like 10-12 hour days.....and you're paid (at least he was) minimum wage (unless it was stated otherwise). But obviously working more than 8 hours meant he was paid overtime for part of the work, and even if the day ended up being only 10 mins or so and you left afterwards, you were still paid for an eight hour day. At least thats what I remember him saying. I don't think I would wanna do it.

    Anyway, yeah, being unemployed sucks. I've looked around and I need to move if I wanna find anything. I have plenty of money saved up, and since I've been unemployed, I still have about 90% of what was saved. I don't know what I wanna do. I wanna go somewhere, get a way, a trip, go on an adventure...who wants to come? Where to?

    am i eligible for unemployment money?
    i left florida and now live in alabama. Its been about a month, and i still haven't found a job (a combination of me being too picky where i apply and not getting called back from the places i've applied so far).

    I can't be bothered to google around and research in all my free time, so i'm asking some of you

    Think about the Cooking with Menik on the road episode. Or if you insist on being a proper visitor and eating in fine places outside of the kind homes inviting you in, Dining with Menik.
