    How can I find a job in one month?

    I really need to get a job so I can move out of my dad's house.

    If you have a Bachelor's degree you can work with any school system. You can also work at the library or any job site such as indeed dot com or monster dot com they have great listings. If neither work, try your local job board either at a grocery or a restaurant.

      I have a Bachelor's degree in Art History with a minor in Dramatic Arts. Thanks for the job board info. I have applied for a job in a library when I was in Conyers, GA.

    Indeed.com! Its a godsend. That site is the best for finding a job.

    You have to approach finding a job as being your job (8-5PM) daily.
    Check at indeed.com and set a goal to email 25-50 resumes a day.
    Go to meetup.com and see if there are any networking groups with meetings coming up in the next week or two.
    Another great resource is LinkedIn, post resume, join groups.
    It's best if you have a "target industry" to help you focus. However if you're just looking for any "McJob" there are probably lots of customer service, inside sales, and telemarking jobs. Right now there is also a lot of "seasonal work" at department stores (Macy's, Target, Penney's, and even UPS. Some people work two part-time jobs until they can find one good paying one.
    Visit your local unemployment office to see if they can assist you.
    If you have a degree in anything you may explore the requirements for being a substitute teacher. There may be a teacher out on maternity leave.
    Sign up with at least three employment agencies. Let them know you will consider contract work of any kind.
    If there are any colleges or universities near you check out their job boards. Don't overlook family, friends, and acquaintances. If people don't know you're looking for a job they probably won't mention opportunities to you.
    If you can't afford your own place consider finding a roommate or possibly renting room in a nice house until you can get your own.
    Practice interviewing techniques and answering interview questions. Make sure your resume highlights (achievements) from past employment. I'm a big fan of the "Knock-em Dead" interview/resume/cover letter books. You can check them out of your local library.
    Last but not least depending on your age and health there is always the military option. You may want to talk to an Air Force recruiter or possibly the Navy, or Coast Guard if you want to reduce your odds of coming face to face with war action.

    Best wishes!

    Finding a job in just 30 days is indeed a daunting task; but in reality it is possible! You will need to mix up the combination of pro-activism and positiveness. With such a mind it is very much possible to get into the new office in 30 days! Here we will give you a weekly guide from week 1 to week 4. Hopefully you will get the things done!

    1. Develop a very much positive mindset and work accordingly in the very first week. Without this positiveness, you will be thrown out even if you get to the interview! Always say to yourself- "I can do it". You will have to stay upbeat at any cost.

    2. Now the second week is about identifying your skills. Don't ever apply to a job that where you do not meet the qualifications. Applying to such jobs will be simply a waste of time. If you find a job meeting all of your qualifications, ask yourself what will make you separate from others regarding this job. If you are 100% confident that you can make your mark in a particular job, just go for it and make a good CV and drop the application.

    3. If you have applied to a job meeting all your qualifications and sell yourself well, there are very much possibilities that you will get the interview call. The third week will be the interview week. Try your best to do something different in the interview. Remember you will be facing your new would be employer! So do something that the employer will remember you separately from others.

    4.  Week 4 can be the most crucial one in the whole process. Yeah, you have heard it right. Don't relax thinking that you have given a good and exceptional interview. That’s not everything my boy! Ours is a technologically advanced world and here the social media plays a major role in almost all the aspects of life. Create account in LinkedIn and a few other networking sites. You will probably find the members of your interview panel there. If you get noticed there positively, the chances will increase. Also clean up your other social media profile (Facebook, Twitter etc.) so that if any employer notices you there they can see a clean profile. By using the social media, you can be the one who is making the mark!

    I would try LinkedIn. It is a good place to be connected with colleagues and recruiters all over the world. It has landed me several interviews in the past. It is free and easy to set up.
