We live in a state where rivers catch fire. How much hope can there possibly be?
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.
sell cocaine.....wait ur in Ohio...sell crank.
Pick up a trade. Blue collar workers are set for lyfe.
You know, the crank market is soaring.
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.
1500 a month is nothing. you don't have time for a vacation...
you need to start looking for a job that pays better immediately
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.
doesnt matter you need to start saving money in case you do have major expenses in the future
Who says I don't have money saved? Careful about making assumptions.
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
