I know how it feels to be recently graduated and looking for a job with no success. I have been looking since before I graduated in the end of May and I can’t find anything. Like you, I have had a few interviews, but no job as of yet. If you are working on getting a job every day then there’s nothing anyone can say to you. There’s no magic way to get a job, and if you are trying, you are trying. 

In terms of the wedding, it’s possible you will find a job soon and get right back on track with earning income and saving money. And if it take a little longer, you could always push the wedding date back a little, or try to scale things down. Try not to feel guilty or upset about offering help, because other people really WANT to help you since you are having trouble finding a job. Some day you’ll be able to repay the favor.

Keep up the good work, and hopefully we will both be employed soon!

Sorry to hear of your sorrow.  I think that you really need to talk to the upper level management of the business you were working for…  If you let them know that you were sick and could not come in and took the time to get a doctor’s excuse… Then I think that they should accept that.  (If it’s a case of you didn’t call because you were too ill…and your guy didn’t think of it… I think that you still should be able to talk to them about this…)  No good bakery would want an ill to the point of vomiting person on their bakery floor.  (There would be obvious health concerns and issues that they would have.  Don’t be afraid to talk to someone.  Right now you sound like you could use some prayers!  I’ll be praying for you that you don’t feel so sad, and that your financial issues get resolved shortly.

Sam’s Club is so ridiculous!  They should be happy that you decided to stay home and take care of yourself!  Seriously, if I was a customer at that particular store and found out that they MADE an employee work sick while making cakes, then I would put in a complaint.  I promise things will get better.  It’s just a matter of time.  I’m sorry.

I’m so sorry that you’re going through this.  This is NOT an easy time to find work, whatever industry you’re in.  I’m also looking for a job and it’s rough out there.  I’ve noticed that a lot of people (especially those in an older generation) just don’t understand how someone can have any level of post high school education and NOT get a job immediately.  The idea that there isn’t a lot out there just doesn’t seem to compute.  Try to think about that when your FH’s grandmother is asking about you working.  She may just not get it.  That being said, I really do think that you both should be honest with her about the situation- the lie has got to be causing you both a lot of stress.

I agree that the termination excuse sounds fishy.  If you were sent home the day before, clearly they have some policy about…you know…people not throwing up in the bakery.  You called before your shift and said that you were still sick.  You were getting your doctor’s note (I’ve never really understood how you are supposed to drag yourself to a doctor to get a note when you are so sick that you can’t work…just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me, and I’m in the Human Resources game).  I would definitely try to find out who is your district manager and have a conversation with that individual.  Unless there is a no-tolerance policy regarding producing doctor’s notes immediately upon returning to work, then this seems very hasty of your manager to just unilaterally fire you.  Also, the fact that they are willing to consider hiring you again really (in my mind) means that they KNOW you didn’t do anything wrong.  I mean, you don’t terminate someone and then say…”hey, when you’re not sick, come back and work for us”.

Have you thought about going back to the college you went to and asking for some employment advice?  They may be able to put you in contact with someone who can help you with your resume, etc.  They may even know if companies are looking to hire their graduates.

Keep your chin up.  Things will look better soon.

@XxMyXxDecemberXx:

If you don’t mind my asking, where in PA are you?  I’m looking for a job in Northeastern PA, but to no avail.

That definitely sucks, I’m sorry.  Good luck on your interview on Monday!

Have you looked into temp agencies in your area? Temping may not have the best reputation in professional circles, but it IS work and it DOES give you some experience. That’s what I’m doing right now until I find permanent work. Some temp positions even turn into full time jobs.

I think you and your Fiance and the parents should head for city hall. Even if you can’t have a big fancy party doesn’t mean you can’t get married!
