Are you saying you can only apply for one job at a time? You need to cast a wider net. Keep in mind, that gravy train you're riding will make its final stop at the end of December.

There is nothing to apply to right now because of the reasons below. I would love to have more options but not the case right now because

1. Part-time Positions

2 High Level Job Positions..."Director type jobs

3. Low Level Jobs.


My goal is to find Full-time "Mid-Level openings"

Your main problem seems to be total lack of flexibility, plus it sounds as though you don't listen to anyone's advice. Every time someone suggests something you make an excuse for why you can't do it.

What are you planning on doing in a couple of months when your unemployment runs out?

Have you taken any classes since you were unemployed to make you more attractive for a higher level position?

Why can't you do two part time jobs?


I just reported you for harassment/trolling.

My husband was unemployed for nearly 9 months and before that point, he just got to the point where he was desperate to take anything....not being picky. While he works a minimum wage job, he continues to look for other opportunities in his field, while bringing in some cash and not having to worry about dealing with unemployment. Another upside, is he's getting some basic medical and dental benefits with the job. Does unemployment give you that?

Your husband was able to take a minimum wage job because he has you as a partner. How could I do that as a single person and stay in my apt? I might as well fight until the end and if i don't succeed then I will just have to move in with family and then take a low paying job.

A low paying job now would be retarded because I wouldn't be able to pay bills. Do you understand that my UC is more than minimum wage? Or maybe you didn't know that?

Have you looked into getting a room mate?

Not really because I have enjoyed living alone for so many years.

I'd try finding a room mate before moving back home. Moving back home should be plan Z. You live in a big city, there has to be jobs for you. What kind of skills do you have?

You know my Mom actually suggested I move back home in August and stack the remaining unemployment checks since it was scheduled to end in December.

Of course I said No, i value my privacy too much.

You are close to the point where you can't have your cake and eat it too. I'll bet if you had moved in with your mother back in August, you would have a job today.

Why? I go to the same sites everyday and have the same 10am to 6pm schedule. It's not but so much I can do, I been applying, I been networking and going on interviews. Now i have gotten close with being offered a job but the pay was too low. Like I said before, a job can only hire 1 person so it doesn't mean I'm doing anything wrong. Why do people constantly think a person who is unemployed for 8 or 9 months is that they are doing something wrong? I can't make a employer hire me

So Nothing would have been different but a higher bank account

If you have been doing the same thing every day for the last 9 months and your actions haven't landed you a job, what does that tell you?

Whether he has me or not, a job is a job and what if you cannot find the job you want before your UC is up? Better to have something, even minimum wage versus nothing. Then you really would be forced to go live with family. I can understand if you just started your UC or are only a few months into it...but approaching a year now, you can't be too picky.

I'm not ashamed to say I have run out of options for now.

How the hell can I live off $200 a week in a $900 apartment? I said I have to move back home if i don;t find a job by december so why the hell are you telling me to take a minimum wage job?
