looking for a job. i have an awesome update and another update
    #675054 - 06/17/13 11:17 PM (3 years, 5 months ago)

Well i went out on another job hunt today and filled out a few more applications and talk to some bosses and all i got was a couple "we will be contacting you" ( which is a no:sad:) and a couple said "come back in a couple weeks and see"( which is a maybe). Now I've been looking for a job for 2 years and haven't got one yet and i was wondering what the hell? What am i doing wrong I'm shaved faced and dress nice for interviews and stuff also talk polite to everyone. does anyone have any tip on how to get a job? Or is there anyone else in the same situation i am?

Worst comes to worst you can join the military and get a free education and experience out of it.

dont sign your life over to the military dude!


Do u have your grade 12?  you can always take short small courses to make your resume look pimp.


I went out got my grade 12, then my class 1, air brake, first aid, cpr, Transportation of dangerous goods, whmis, H2S certificate, and im currently doing a 20 hr safety course.  Most courses are cheap and take 1 day... even having your CPR+first Aid looks good. 


You need something that makes you stand out from the rest :thumbup:


My resume is also 40% lies, I even have my friends as references (labeled as past employers) (i had zero work experience so i needed to spice it up) ... i dont recommend this tho

I got my job from a place called Employment Connection. Hit up your local EDD office and see what programs there are in your area. Also indeed.com jobbing.com monster.com careerbuilder.com and craigslsit are good tools. It gets real discouraging filling out app after app and signing up for shit all day but its the nature of the beast now a days I guess.
Volunteering at places that are hiring also couldn't hurt. I did volunteer work at my library when I was on the hunt cause the county was hiring for a library asst. Look for opportunities like that. Good luck!

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

See, that term pedo gets thrown around a lot.
Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.
