Are jobs that much harder to find now?

Post by CausticTears » Wed Jun 25, 2008 1:20 am

I'm very bored, just fyi.



I can't seem to find a job.



I've applied to places and have not gotten call backs. I've been a little picky, fine. I've applied for several positions at a market, a hotel, and a few reception positions. I'm gonna apply to more hotels, soon.



But, is anyone else having an issue finding a job they want?
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

not sure, but hotels can be picky, especially fancier ones. They get a lot of aplicants too, so I don't think that's your best bet. Any movie theatre's looking to hire? By market you mean grocery store?, that sounds good to me. I

The economy is in the shitter right now, it is going to be harder to find a job than a year or two ago.

I was lucky when I was hired back in October. To be honest, different businesses hire in waves. I don't believe it's harder to find a job now but the media likes to portray it as harder.

I've noticed that it is harder to find a job. Have you tried looking around your town for like a workforce help place. Maybe even DES can help. Good Luck! I hope you find one soon.
