Posted on 09/27/2012 7:47:39 PM PDT by caldera599
I have been out of work for nearly six months and have had nearly all my job applications rejected. I have student loans due, seemingly no prospects and I don't know what to do. Please pray hard for me that I may find employment soon.
Prayers going up!
Have you looked into North Dakota? I heard operations there are really picking up in the oil and gas industry kind of like alberta and there’s all the jobs that go with it. I don’t know what your trade or profession is, but it might be worth checking out.
You can clean houses to make money while looking for work. I know a lady who has a lot of good clients and makes good money doing this.
Outdoor work - mowing lawns (my brother did this while looking for work - he is now employed).
Oh caldera....we’ll pray for you!!! I’m sorry that you TOO have fallen into this mess. It’s hard. Very hard.
Logan’s Prayer Warriors...please join in prayer.
Will be keeping you in my prayers...it is a difficult time for so many folks.
Where are you located?
Construction is picking up here in Oregon.
Praying for employment doors to open. God is good, He will be there to help you.
Will do so. If you can, see if you can get your student loans deferred. I was unemployed for some time after leaving college and had to do that myself.
Hang in. Prayes up.
May God richly provide for you - even in the midst of hardship.
will pray you find employment soon
Prayer said. God will not forsaken you. Listen to what He says. And listen to the advice you get here.
I heard a guy on the radio a while back who went to North Dakota and was hired at six figures AFTER they train him.
Prayers that this works out for you.
Are your loans from the government? If so call them up and ask for the income based payment application.
Your payment will be reduced to zero.
Private loan companies may have this plan as well.
You have my prayers too. Don’t lose hope, keep the faith. Things will improve. They always do.
Praying that something will open up for you soon.
Please take the doubts, frustrations and fears from Caldera’s heart and mind and replace them Your Holy Light.
Yep, prayers up, but come here to North Dakota. Jobs are plentiful.
I hope you find employment soon. What a rotten 4 years. Obummer has put me out of business. High production costs and inabilty to charge enough to cover it. By June, I will have sold my last product, and I’ll be searching for work too. I pray both of us are guided to the right jobs.
I’ve been there, although without the student loans. I never got those. What I ended up doing was getting favors from relatives. Ended up taking a job with relatives.
Heavenly Father -
Open the door and guide caldera599 to the place in Your perfect will. Bless and provide for daily needs. May You be glorified in Your care for Your servant.
Hang in there. I was in the same boat as you, just found employment. A few tips:
1) Don’t discount jobs that you think are “beneath” you.
2) Take on several jobs and any side work you can.
3) Remember that (a) God is good, (b) God is in control, and (c) God is victorious. Have faith and trust in Him. I will pray for you.
If you can’t pay your student loan-—
There is an option called forbearance. You can get your loan delayed
for 6 months (or another term). However, the interest still accumulates.
But your credit is still intact.
Still, it might be good to call your student loan company to check it out.
You have to sign a forbearance agreement.
((((hugs)))) Will say special prayers on Tuesday.,God Bless,Fatima
You haven’t filled out your Home Page on FReeRepulic so we don’t know what State you live and you don’t tell us what job you are looking for. Please be specific and you may find a job.
Prayers going up. I hope you find something soon. My husband and I have found ourselves in the same situation, but fortunately have enough in savings for the time being.
A couple of people in our condo area are currently unemployed and the condo board hired them to do the things that the lawn care company was not keeping up with. Just and idea.
Yep, and get food stamps, etc.
Why not? We are losing the moochers vs. producers battle.
Yes, I’m pessimistic and cynical. At my age I’m tired of this fight. We on the conservative side have no real help. If 2010 was proof nothing matters, then I’m through.
Praying for your intention.
Oh Lord hear our prayers.
We thank you for this day, this hour, this minute, this second - and we lift Caldera up to you in his hour of need.
Please clear a path for him as he seeks employment.
Your way is clear, your will be done.
Prayers. Hoping you find something quickly.
I’m praying for you.
Your Father owns everything and everyone. You have Connections in high Places!
Just keep moving your feet and don’t worry about what is out of your control. Turn it over to Him. It will be alright.
Many, many small business owners are almost unemployed with the economy in it’s current state. I’ve spoken to many who haven’t had work in months.
Yes there are lots of good paying jobs in N. Dakota. The weather and housing sucks, but you’ll make money.
I have been out of work many times in my life, (73 years) and I always found something to do. I rented an abandoned service station and went into the auto repair business (I did know how to repair autos). I rented a building, bought a rivit machine, went arount to trucking companies and retrieved their worn out brake shoes, and went into the brake relining business. I stripped the old shoes, cleaned and painted them, relined them, put them in a kit with the necessary hardware and resold them to trucking companies in a three state area....very successful. I have a friend who was the manager of a large credit union who lost his job due to a merger of two companies. He now runs his own lawn care center....40 or 50 customers and you can live pretty good!!!.
look everywhere, pass up nothing...does your local prison/juvenile correction facility need help??? does your local school system need help, even in maintenance or janitorial servives???
Keep your head up, don't wait for something to be laid at your doorstep..it ain't going to happen!!!
I've been there. I know what you're going through.
Have you checked into deferring your student loan.
God just fix it, would you?
Prayers going up!
My the lord bless you and strengthen you in your time of trial
Prayers lifted, for strength,faith and an answer to your prayers FRiend.
May God keep watch.
