I feel useless and almost hopeless with jobs applying for and presently not getting any work..
bills piling up and no where to turn.. I am frustrated that when I apply for a state job… they ask if I am receiving food stamps or FDIC.. I am not.. and unfortunately.. they get considered for the job over me.. I am depressed and don’t know where to turn…

Are you applying to any particular field? Do you specialize in certain types of work?
I am presently a Realtor/Real Estate Agent. and I have worked in the past in all aspects of the Administrative field to Coordinator for doctors and supervisors of companies. I have worked for the state for over 10 years in the past, and hearing from what the news states.. they are cutting jobs due to cutbacks. I previously worked in the health field, and was in nursing school back in 1992, and completed a year, and worked as a health home health nursing assistant while in school. But due to a abusive marriage I was in, I had to stop nursing school and get myself in a more safe and stable environment. I love helping people and especially the elderly and in real estate I fullfill those needs in ways. I would love to help with transitioning of elderly moving from there home to a smaller place of care. A retirement village of some type when that time arrises in there life. I just feel, I can get ahead in life, and struggling with bills and no help out there for someone in my age group or anything. I feel that it is like I have fallen through the cracks in life.. I have two grown kids, youngest is 22 works two jobs and is going to enlist in the services, due to growing unemployment, and I not having the funds to help with his finances.. and his father was killed in a motorcycle accident 2 years ago. The story can go on and on… and I realize I am not the only one at there.. My daughter is struggling too.. possibly losing her house to foreclosure.. and I can’t help..
It sounds like you have a wealth of experience and abilities. In a thriving economy you would likely have no difficulty finding work. To me it seems like a matter of time before you find a good job, so I hope you don’t get discouraged too much. I wish I could offer some solid, clear-cut advice, but I will have to think about it. Someone else step up and help!
i would like to know where “N” lives that the economy is thriving
I am not here to inform america where the economy is booming are failing… it is overall effecting all of us.. especially households with single parents trying to make ends meet for a family. I am a strong woman with a strong consitution, but there is only so much a person can take and they have a feeling of no answers… and want to give up…
it really is hard i have been out of work for 3 months and look at jobs online everyday and i’m starting to feel very anxious about bills and my future for the first time in 30 years i don’t have a job i wasn’t criticizing you i just wondered where in the US are there decent job oppurtunities
I think there are job opportunites in all areas; the problem is.. there are so many people out there looking at the same time, put my chances that much slimmer, and hearing all of the layoffs… I feel for all of the people losing there homes, and I could be one myself before long. I hope the economy comes back soon for the sake of all of us out there struggling to make ends meet. I sell real estate and I deal mostly with people buying foreclosures and short sales… and my concern is.. where are all of these people going that lost there houses, when renting sometimes is not an option once your credit is effected from all of the failed bills and credit history down the tubes and no one having money to recover…
I am 58 years old and have worked since I was 12 years old with two paper routes and then began working 2 jobs when I was 16 years old. When i was 20, I became a police officer and worked it successfully for 21 years and retired. I then worked for two large insurance companies until being downsized nearly 2 years ago. I am sad and feel terrible on Monday morning when folks head out to work and I have no job. I have sent resumes, applications, interviewed and still no job. I have taken this job search very seriously, but yet I am unemployed. The government provides extensions and there is no incentive to work two full time jobs to equal what unemployment pays. Besides, my health is not what it was and I am totally disillusioned. Depressed is not the word for me, useless is how I feel, like I have been forgotten and every good thing I did for all the prior years in my life count for nothing… Like I said, useless. God Bless America.

Hi I am 52 and feel like a failure. I got another rejection for a job that I would have been good at it was working as a customer service rep for an auto dealership. Most days I think it is because of my age and lack of college education. Used to work in the medical field and was a Purchasing assistant for 2 hospitals and 34 clinics. In 2009 the eliminated my position and I have been going downhill ever since. I have no self confidience little self esteem and wish I could die.
I am severely depressed and have anxiety and suicide issues.
We just got rid of our 2nd vehicle to eliminate a payment so now we are working around all of that stuff. Why are we all going thru such difficult times? I feel we are experiencing and 2nd Depression with our economy the way it is now.
I have no idea what to do next? They say the economy is better but I do not see it at all. What is my next step I guess putting one foot in front of the other and keep applying for jobs that I will never be good enough to get.

Also how is it that somepeople who are on disability can afford to go to Germany for 2weeks and then come back and buy a new used car? Life is not fair and sometimes just plain stinks.
