Ok guys been quite some time since I posted I know. However I recently find myself without employment. I'll post the stories another date because the reason is so damned silly to lose a job over.
That being said i find myself needing to find a job ASAP. My lease is about to end, just put a deposit down for my new apartment then boom fired. So I need ideas on how to brush up my resume, job industries to apply for.
I can do cashiering, sales floor, customer services, security, jewelry, and other things related to those. I just need something NOW so I can not worry about paying my rent for my new place and not end up homeless.

There are also job search websites you can use.
http://www.indeed.com/ is one of the best.
I will warn you: for the love of Thrognar, unless you want to sell insurance door to do, stay AWAY from monster.com or yahoo hot jobs!
I made a profile saying that I was looking for medical administrative job only. I was then was solicited once a week by companies who wanted me to sell insurance door-to-door for them. In order to do so, you first had to take a $1,500 class to learn how, and IF (I cannot emphasis the "If" enough) they decided you were worthy of hiring, they would waive the cost of the class.
Otherwise you still had no job and were in debt for the $1,500.
They kept promising me that it would be soooo easy to become a manager if I did a good job, and how MUCH money I could potentially make. They kept trying to sweep the cost of the class under the rug and downplay it, and when I told them that unless they had a job in my field, that they were wasting my time, they got sulky.
I was wise enough not to take the bait, but in the end, the "insurance company" was the ONLY contact I ever got using those sites.
RHU, if you have any further advice, please share it!
