Jobless Economy

Well guys, been trying to find a job for a while. I've been applying everywhere and with no luck in site.  I lost my old job because of "economic sizing"  and man does it suck. You guys have any ideas or tips, I guess you could say, to make me stand out from other applicants or somehow have a better chance of getting the job?  Anyone else getting or finding jobs as well?

  2. Shit man, I guess the best you could do is not to be nervous and act sharp during the interview, other than that, ask around for jobs man, some spots never get advertised

  5. What works for me is being myself. Literally. I don't get jobs. I do gigs. I fix things for people. Be flexible. Accept the fact that you won't always be able to land steady work in this economy.

    Develop skills people need. Do you know how to fix computers? advertise for it. Ever do any landscaping? General handy man stuff can pay ok, and get you by, while you're looking to land "the job".

    Because hey. You have to eat, while you're trying to find the perfect carrier.

  14. Don't you have work agency's or something over there? It worked for me, but then again that was before the whole economy broke down.
