    I have never had a full-time job but I have my BA and years of part-time work experience and currently work two part-time jobs.

    I will relocate basically anywhere and pay isn't important to me.

    This is definitely a really desperate post, but I need to try unconventional methods since a run-of-the-mill approach of sending my resume off into cyberspace hasn't worked for a year and a half.

    Please, if anyone knows of any full-time leads message me!

    Many of us can relate to your desperation. I hate to burst your hope bubble but you won't find RJ a source with any employment opportunities. People will give you advice on job hunting and well wishes, but you won't find a job through this place.

    Ariodante is right when he says this isn't a source for employment possibilities, however, we could at least give him some ideas...

    OP, you live in Denver. Two large airlines have their "hubs" in the area, United and Frontier. There are a pair of possibilities for you. The industry doesn't pay an awful lot, however, there should be something you can offer with either organization.

    I've never had a full-time gig either. I've always just had to cobble together as much part-time work as I can.

    The simple fact is that the U.S. can no longer accommodate the work force.

    I have never found the method of "sending a resume into cyberspace" to be a realistic approach. You need to be social, and meet the right people and then you can find more desirable jobs. It's much easier to hire someone when u know their face.

    Underemployment is the watchword.

    You don't hear it enough on the news.

    Are there many underemployed guys on RJ ? Maybe you are right and I just haven't noticed. icon_confused.gif

    Likely way more than you expect.

    People are working longer hours for less money. Those just starting out are going to end up on the revolving intern rack (I've done so much free work in the name of "experience"). Others are hit by wage theft. I'd wager that very few are working in the area they obtained their degrees in. Higher education is just the latest bubble, and many young people are underwater with their degrees in the way their parents are with over-valued homes.

    Them grapes is awfully wrathful.

    Having degrees and performing administrative and technical work is great, however physical labor jobs are fine also. icon_wink.gif

    Pretty rough and I can imagine what it must be like. If I hear of anything, I'll certainly let you know.

    The trucking industry is absolutely desperate for regional and long-haul drivers and you are desperate for a job..
    Perhaps you should try something you never thought about to tide you through until things get better

    Seriously

    Here's just one website of thousands of truck driving jobs with legitimate companies looking for drivers

    There are thousands and thousands of well paying jobs just going begging for worker right there in the USA . It's just that most people these days do not want to get their hands dirty and just want to sit in front of a keyboard.

    OP: I really felt bad for you reading your post. What was even more unfortunate was reading some of the others who say this is the new normal and how it has to be. This is the current situation:

    Whatever change the youth vote had hoped for then, the most compelling delta in their world since is the rate of nonemployment for those aged 18 to 24, which has risen to nearly 16%. A study compiled recently by the Associated Press, based on academic surveys, said the combined rate of youth unemployment and underemployment was an astounding 50%.

    Some of those who say this is the new normal also actively take political positions that fosters it. I really hesitated commenting in this thread because I think politics should generally stay in the political folder, but I am amazed at how some cannot connect the dots. I'll just refer you to this thread, and suggest if not already involved politically, consider getting involved and studying the issues from different viewpoints.

    Hoping the best for you.

    "There are thousands and thousands of well paying jobs just going begging for worker right there in the USA . It's just that most people these days do not want to get their hands dirty and just want to sit in front of a keyboard."

    Oy, this.

    I have never heard this one before.

    I'm a real man! I make things with my hands! I gots callouses! Back in my day, we worked twenty-seven hours a day for ten cents an hour!

    Because wages never get frozen. And there's no such thing as the working poor. And, like poverty, unemployment is the result of laziness. Also, I should be overjoyed to be a long-haul trucker, the ideal cover job for a serial killer.

    Thank you, Wilford Brimley.

    When the entire world economy has slowed, this country is NOT an exception to the rule.

    "Economists are worried that slower overseas growth will reduce demand for U.S. exports. About one-fifth of U.S. exports go to Europe, which is in the third year of a financial crisis."

    "U.S. sales to China fell, possibly because that country's growth is slowing. Exports to China dropped 4.3 percent to $8.5 billion."

    That not true! You know, when you have done 6 years of university you just expect a work in accordance to your formation, and knowledge. I did work as waiter or into an mechanical industry to pay my study. I worked almost years during my master degree in the field I was studying (architecture) for almost free, for the "experience". But just be conscious that is fucking annoying when you lost 6 years, paying money and time for your study and dont get any payback!

    My very first public job in 1979 only paid $2.90 per hour. icon_biggrin.gif

    Didn't you consider any of this when you chose your field of study? Or did you just choose and hope for the best? icon_confused.gif

    "My very first public job in 1979 only paid $2.90 per hour."

    And my newlywed parents got by on $4,000 a year at that same time.

    Care to give it a go now?
