I’m in the process of opening a small portrait studio. Please pray for my success. I have earned less than $9,000 from real estate in the past 16 months. Savings are nearly all gone.

For California jobs, check out this site: California EDD site

Also, if you're a veteran, be sure to contact the veterans specialist at your local EDD office. (AFAIK, each EDD ofice has a person dedicated to assisting veterans in job search, resume prep, interviewing tips, etc.)

Are there any websites out there that can show you where the highest demand is for a particular job skill? As an example; where are plumbers in highest demand? Nurses? Accountants? Is there such a site?

I have no idea. I have a bookmark http://www.allmyfaves.com/ that had all these links on it so I posted them hoping I could help someone find a job.

This site uses web bots to aggregate listings from a wide variety of other job listing sites, from governmental job banks to monster. During my “scare” earlier in the year, I found Simply Hired and Indeed to be the best of the lot, particularly if you save your search and subscribe for a daily e-mail of new or updated listings that fit your search criteria.

Both my daughters are looking for jobs. One of them is a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration and Communications and the my older daughter (turned 30 today) graduated from Nursing School in June with an AAS in Nursing. I try all those job sites. It is so frustrating because most of the listings are “agencies”. If you find a “private employer” they want 5-7 years experience plus a Bachelor’s Degree for a job as a receptionist that pays $25K per year. That’s not much if you live in NYC like we do. The nursing jobs are even more difficult to come by. You need to speak Spanish, Mandarin or Russian.

Sometimes it is time to leave where you are and find jobs elsewhere. and agency jobs can lead to work

...There is another thread that I saw earlier on this issue. I thought months ago to start a thread on FR to see if FR had a network for those looking or hiring FReepers that may be looking for employment. Haven’t been here for a while, but, I’m glad that this community is providing a service to help “FReepers in need”. G-d bless our Free Republic...

You better open it this weekend because you only have a few weeks to cash in on the Christmas rush for portraits. After that you won’t have much business at all.

Careful with drawing too many conclusions from that. I’m not sure I understand why, but many corporations have open positions advertised that remain open for very lengthy periods of time, to the point that I wonder if there is any intention of filling them, or if the jobs actually exist at all. Governmental job listings are notorious for this.

I’ve found that you can weed out allot of the agencies by just googling the phone number in the ad.

I’m sure some of them are those work from home “jobs” too. But I did put in my local zip code and I know most of them are available because I’ve seen them on the DOL and other local sites/newspapers. Whether it’s 2 million or 3 million, the point is there are jobs out there and many aren’t even advertised on these sites. I see too many people who are of the attitude of “I’m too good to do that job”. But when times are tough, you do what you gotta do.

It is a good site, don’t get me wrong. I still receive e-mails daily of my search criteria on Simply Hired. They capture listings that the others don’t.

Keep in mind that figure includes a ton of duplicates. Some firms will have several agencies working on a position, and each will have ad, as well as the original ad from the hiring firm. Plus firms and agencies revise and republish ads, so they will have the same job posted more than once. There is also the fact that an aggregator will show the same job from multiple sites which firms may also be using or may themselves be aggregators. Finally, companies and agencies post “ongoing opportunities” that do not represent openings but are positions they like to have a stack of candidates for just in case.

In other words, the number is not at all accurate.

There’s an older handyman that I hire not only because he knows his trade but he takes the time to sweep up after he’s done so my wife or I doesn’t have to do it. If something needs to be wiped with a wet rag, he does it. I like that.

He shows up when he says he will and the one time that he incorrectly bid the job, didn’t raise his price or try to screw me. So I asked how much he was off by and paid him. Now he gives me ‘family member rates’. LOL

People are desperately in NEED of a good Handy-man carpenter these days. From home repairs, to hanging fans and fixtures..etc. Name your price!

Put a small Ad in the local newspaper, or go to a Senior Citizens Recreation Center and spread the word you are available. You should be busy constantly.

Someone just reminded me that veterans should be looking at defense industry corporate websites such as Boeing and
Northrup Grumman because they don’t often use outside agencies to list their open positions.

It's a lot cheaper than Monster and Careerbuilder, and as a result is getting more and more companies posting there.

Best of luck to you! We send prayers and all best wishes for your success.

Even in down times people want to record major life events. Parents of newborns are especially good potential customers. Check with local hospitals, read birth listings in newspapers... send the parents a congratultory note and enclose your business card. Keep records of birth date, send follow-on birthday cards.

Also, get friendly with clergy and houses of worship personnel who could recommend engagement/wedding photos. Wedding planners could give good referrals, too.

Time for me to find a job. My husband is facing a layoff this winter, for how long we don’t know, so I am going to do my best to help to provide for my family...after being a stay at home mom for 10 years. Should be interesting to say the least.

Thank you all for posting this info and links. It’s a great blessing to me!

Not a bad idea. Do you have any idea what type of money that might bring in? I have no idea at all, but if it might be lucrative, that may be an option, too.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I would imagine $15 to $25 an hour depending on how organized you are and what part of the country you’re in. If you throw in add-ons like grocery shopping, picking up dry cleaning, etc., where you can hire a teenager to do the actual add-on, I’d suppose that you could push it up to $40. Or include the add-on in with your own, and get paid to do your shopping, etc.

I have friends that are so busy making money they don’t even have time to sort their own mail. LOL Private secretaries, cooks, house cleaners, yard crews, etc. They have got it down pat though. One guy has a regular home like mine in town and then a 6M dollar mansion up at the lake. He writes off the mansion as a guest home by having business guests stay there on weekends a couple of times a month.
