Some Ways to Make Money
Job security is a thing of the past; especially with the down economy within our country. They say it is better, but many people do not see that within their own lives. A lot of people have found it hard to find any job. Often they get a 'you are too qualified,' They have drawn unemployment benefits as long as possible and are at a point of no return; they think.
Finding employment and ways of making money in the city is easier than for those who live in the country. First, there are more jobs. There are more businesses, and much more opportunity. But, even with the added opportunity, companies and employers; it has still been almost impossible for some people to get back to work, especially at the salary they once enjoyed..
In the city or country it is an advantage if you have a teaching degree, nursing degree, banking experience, or a degree of any kind. Your chances are much higher to find the employment you are comfortable with.
In the country, rural areas mainly, it is somewhat harder to find employment, whether it is a full time job, or an extra job. The jobs that exist often pay lower wages, and some companies can only hire minimum staff to get the job done. However, for those who are on unemployment benefits in this country, and need a job; there are some ways to make money and get back into the workforce.
Feeling of Rejection
When one goes out to find employment after being rejected many times in the field of work they are accustomed to; it is definitely disheartening. It can make an individual feel un-productive and lacking in ability. But, with any survival situation, it is necessary that one should be willing to do whatever it takes, regardless of how unimportant it seems.
Money is money and when you are trying to re-generate yourself; drawing unemployment as long as you can; might only deepen your inability to find a job, period. Most employers want or need someone who is established in a working environment of some kind; that is a fact that often comes into play.
When an individual is not out in the public, they do not hear about other jobs. If you are out and about; it is possible to hear conversations of what might be an opportunity to move up again and to a better place.
It has been said by some people, that the only job I can get is in the local restaurant, waiting tables. I have known waitresses who have made a very reliable income waiting tables. Some people load up (if they try to be excellent waiters/waitresses). They find a good restaurant that has lots of customers and finds a way to convince the manager to give them a trial period and then they prove their worth.
Positive thinking is key to any change that is life threatening. Often we must take jobs that we feel are less than our ability but it gets the individual back out where they can often pick up on companies that are hiring.

There is always a time for learning something new, and being able to get more education can lead to greater possibilities. So if you feel less productive where you are; you can work in a more satisfactory environment if you have furthered your education.
With that said, there are trails and failures sometimes in what makes one feel like they might be moving backward, instead of forward. You never know when something good can come out of what seems to be a less than desirable situation. You have to start some place and if you cannot get in a field or job that you are educated in; then it is time to educate yourself to something else. The longer one waits to try to regain their position in life; the harder it becomes.
