I don’t have much advice, because I am in a similar boat as you. I understand the frustration and uncertainty you’re facing. I find that in my moments of optimisism an opportunity comes to light. Just try to focus on the positiivity in your life, and a job will come eventually.

My husband has been unemployed for 2 1/2 months now so I feel your pain!  It is so frustrating trying to make ends meet.  He has had so many phone interviews which have led to nothing.  I feel you!  Keep your head up!

Just stay positive. I’m kind of going through the same thing except I’m the one working and my husband has been on unemployment. We are a family of 6 everyday and 8 every other weekend. My husband was the breadwinner bringing home twice what I make. He was in an accident in December and was out of work for 3 months which was hard on us, especially being it was Christmastime. He went back to work the last week of February and was laid off after two weeks essentially putting him at home for 6+ months now. 

We are actually just waiting on his toxicology test to come back to find out his start date on his new job and I feel so much relief, it’s been a lot on me to provide for everyone and I’m ready to get back to “normal”. Just hang in there and things will work out!!

When I was unemployed I was lucky enough to take a temorary position working part time for my mom, which has lead to a complete career change for me.  I was ready to take on a second part time job at Starbucks (worked there in college) to make ends meet too.  My point is to try to take anything you can get, even if it’s temporary.  You never know where it can lead.

Try not to get too discouraged.  I didn’t read your previous posts but is your husband working?

What do you do for a living? Anything you could do remotely? I ask because if it’s really a matter of paying the bills, you could try setting yourself up on a site like UpWork and bidding on jobs that interest you. Here’s the thing though, you’ve got to go full tilt. You’ll have to take the time (like an hour) to really build out your profile, take some proficiency tests related to the work you want, and then start bidding.

Don’t believe people who tell you it’s all low paying jobs. I make 5K+ a month through the exclusively and I work 20-30 hours a week (from my home office). I’ve been on it and actually using it for 18 months.

Just a thought. I hate to see people at the mercy of the universe.
