Can't Find A Permanent JobI've had some contracts here and there but nothing to get me started. I live at home and I'm so thankful I have a family that supports me. But unable to find work is slowly killing what SMALL amount of self-esteem I have left. And I just have this pressing desire to be out on my own. I'm old. Getting older by the minute. And tired. Just so tired. I gave up my search for my dream job and I'm now applying to anything and everything. And with each application I send to a place that is nothing like what I wanted to do with my life... another chunk of me shrivels up and dies. Of course, not even these places will give me an interview.
Someone mentioned volunteering... I may look into that again. As long as I can find something I can stomach (as in no cleaning up after animals or people...there seems to be only that kind of thing near me.)
EDIT: What the hell? You have to have experience to volunteer in most places too? ::is doomed::
EDIT SPRING 2013: And in case anyone wanted to know... I found a job :) Temporary but I hope it will become permanent... I can't believe how securing a job can make me feel like a decent human being again. It's great. ::deep breath:: And it's even doing what I wanted to be doing :)
