    And before any of you judge me

    for quitting my job without having a back up, let me explain something to you. It's about living with mental disorders and having to deal with them by myself. I have many mental disorders that I'm suppose to take medicine for it. I have depression, anxiety, slight ocd, paranoia...

    for a job and got an interview. I didn't think the interview well so I wasn't expecting a positive call back however I did get a call back for a second interview, I was so excited until I found out that a friend of mine knows the employer and sort of chatted me up to him. Now I...

    What To Do.

    I was applying for a job in this retail store when I saw a 'shoplifter'. My first instinct was to find the store manager, but I stopped myself. I thought that perhaps this person was out of work too, and had been for a long time. Perhaps desperation had let her to break the law...

    This is ridiculous. I've just graduated high

    school and I'd love to find a job to save up or spend some money during summer. But I've never worked before, because I wanted to focus on school, so I don't have any experience. Also it would be a miracle if someone hired me knowing that I'm going on two, week long trips on the...

    petty jobs. I can't actually find a job because no one will hire me at this stage and it annoys me. I like to do chores like cutting grass but it's not enough honestly. I'm talking about an actual job with an employer, and fellow employees.
