Besides hanging out here on HubPages trying to scratch out a living, do you think the job market will improve and that you will be returning to the workforce in the near future?
I've been trying to enter the workforce for three months. I've had 2 interviews in 3 months after hundreds of applications. no I don't think a job is in my near future.
The application gig is depressing, or at least depressing to me. It feels so anonymous. All those applications get filtered though software that looks for KEYWORDS.
I wish you luck, and I hope you have unemployment to help you through until a job does arrive.
More or less been unemployed since January of 2009. Been over a year, with some part time retail work thrown in over the holidays.
I got fired Wednesday.
Guess I get to make hubbing my full time "job" while I finish school and draw unemployment. Heh.
I have a job..But have been laid off for 3-4 weeks..Because i do seasonal work, fruit, and there i just no work for the next 3-4 weeks.. I'm pretty bummed about it, as i have to ask my parents for money! But, on the bright side, at least i have more time to write and focus on things tht need focus
I am self-employed - we had a very slow couple of months and were starting to get very worried - how do we pay our bills, can we buy groceries this week. Now, however, the business has picked up a lot and although we are in catch up mode with the bills, things are looking better.
I left my last job in Jan to go back to my studies. My uni happens to be in a one horse town so no jobs here even in good times!
I've been unemployed since October, had 5-6 interviews, no bites. Still fighting to get unemployment.
I was layed off one year ago today, after 30 years.
insane...sorry to hear that....did you work in the auto industry?
Fighting to get unemployment? I thought if are not self-employed and your employer paid unemployment insurance then you are entitled to unemployment.
nope. you have to leave for a valid reason in order to get it. the reason stated for my denial is: did not leave for reasons attributable to employer. What a load of BS!!! nope, I hired an attorney and filed an appeal - an administrative law judge will determine whether or not I'm eligible. (hearing is set for later this month)
I'm unemployed, but I get SSDI. I'm still trying to learn some smart ways to make money from home. Hubpages is a perfect place to start if you want to get into freelance writing.

Thats ridiculous, if you can't find a job in your area in three years then move to where the jobs are. Unemployment is beginning to be a career for some people.

Do you believe that a financial crisis is coming in the near future?Global Currency Reset. The collapse of the dollar. A severe stock market crash twice as bad as 1929. I'm hearing from so many that it is a certainty. Do you expect one to take place soon?

Four Democrats and Lieberman voted with the Republicans. I have mixed feelings about this, according to the research I've done. It seems that "economy experts" are split on their views. Some argue that increasing taxes on the upper economic class will stifle jobs, while others say that...
