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.
There are thousands of nursing jobs available in the US.
Leave NYC if necessary.
Always but in NY no one wants to hire a 52 yr old carpenter/builder.
You know you will be competing with people who know the business they are in, don't you?
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
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.
Send me $25.00 and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
you pay for it you might as well take advantage of it
Thank you for all this info. My husband just got layed off yesterday after 16 years with company.
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!

Anybody looking for a gig?
Have you thought of teaming up with another lady and starting your own business cleaning homes? You work in the better part of town and your hours are what you say they are.
