DH has a low paying job at Target but he’s been interviewing for better government jobs.

Honestly not even an engineering degree and 4 years in the military is helping him, so I can only imagine how hard it is for 90% of the people job hunting!!!!

I hope you get the derm job =]. I personally think skin stuff is SO cool and used to want to be a dermatologist. Until i learned how extremely competitive it is =

I’m currently job hunting in the Poconos since that is where my FI lives.  Unfortunately, the job prospects up there are dim.  Luckily I have a job now, it’s just that we currently live two and a half hours apart.  I can’t live with him until I find a job up there.  So far, I’ve only received one phone call back after a few months of submitting resumes.  

The other day I heard an ad on the radio for a radio station that needed Account Executives.  I called and they called me back.  I especially liked the fact that I got to speak to someone, because usually you submit a resume online and never hear back.  Well, the woman was really nice and even offered to meet me on a Saturday so I didn’t have to take a day off from work. We meet and talk and the interview seemed to go well.  Then she says that they aren’t actually hiring.  Hmmm….then I wondered why they had the ad on the radio if they weren’t hiring.

Best of luck with the job at the dermatologist’s office.  Let us know what happens!

I am! I just finished my master’s degree program and now I’m on the market. I’ve had two really promising interviews, and I’m just dying waiting to hear the results. I cannot wait to get hired!!! If you have seen my blog posts at all, I’ve mentioned a few times that between the wedding, the increased cost of living from moving to Boston, and me being out of work, Mr. Octo and I have just been unbelieeeeevably broke this year. I’m so sick of it. I told my sister the other day, I want a salary again so bad I can taste it. Good luck to all of you in the same situation, fingers crossed for us all!

I quit my job 2 months ago (extreme stress, crappy management, etc) but had to go back at the beginning of June because I couldn’t find anything else that I was able to do and that would pay as well as my other job (not high-paying by any means but it’s a little better than minimum wage). The plan this time is to keep looking for a new and better job while I’m working at my current one. I took a break from jobhunting the past two weeks while I get back in the swing of my old job, but I’m going to start looking again now. I’ve only been back at work two weeks and I’m already getting frustrated with it.

Good luck with the dermatologist job! I’ll be hoping you get a call soon! 🙂

I am. I have applied to nearly a hundred jobs and haven’t even landed an interview.  It’s really beginning to wear on me… I had to move back in with my parents and all I do is fill out applications. ‘m beginning to feel like going to college was a waste of time…i could have been building up more work experience, and most of the jobs i’ve applied to only require a HS diploma…

I am, and I definitely feel you and everyone else is searching. I was hoping to make a little bit of money to save up for when I go back to school in the fall, but I live in a pretty small town and there just aren’t a lot of places hiring. Or, if they are hiring, they want someone who is going to stay on long term. I’ve been looking for a month now, and it’s discouraging!

UGH…. the one depressing aspect of my life.  My fiance and I are both teachers and recently relocated from Memphis to our hometown of Chicago.  We missed our families A LOT and decided that location was more important than our jobs…. opps.  Luckily, he was recently hired but I’m still looking.  It’s really stressful considering we are paying for our wedding and budgeted based on our salaries.  The Illinois teaching job market is very bleak right now : (

Ugh…me! I just finished my master’s degree this week so I’m on the market and nobody wants to hire a new grad! I have a feeling this may be a long process and I’m not looking forward to it. Good luck to everyone who’s looking!

my fiance is looking and looking for months.  He is getting really frustrated.  Luckily he still has his current job, which isn’t what he loves, but it pays the bill for now!  Good luck to everyone looking!

We both just wrapped up our job hunts, and will be starting up in the next couple of weeks.  He wasn’t planning on leaving his job, but it ended up working out for the best after a long search. 

Best of luck to everyone, we have felt your pain lately!
