Default Looking for a job....

So I've been looking for a new job for three months and its seems like it hopeless to find. I guess it's easier to get in places when you know someone. I've been working 2 jobs since April 15 hours a day 5 days a week and its literally messing with my mental health ha. By chance does anyone know of any places hiring at 16+ a hour? If so I'd appreciate the help. The Internet only helps so much with job searching. Thank you.

Do you have any skills? Or are you just someone who has no education and no skills and expects to make over minimum wage?

im looking to... more than 16 an hour would suit me for now.

if you find something let me know. the problem I am having is I interview somewhere, and then get called in for the second interview and it still takes them 2-3 weeks to make a decision (still waiting to hear something).

PITA...

Me X3. I want a salaried position where I can actually work like 32 hours and still get paid my full salary. I want a plush lifestyle so anything over 200K would be ok. 175K at the very least.

Thnx

Asking for a job with no description or basic skills says you don't have any. With that, good luck with that wage.

I didn't want to be obvious with my thoughts, but since you said it I would like to point out my link said the exact same thing.

because pounding nails, tending a mason, working an assembly line, or being a mechanic requires a phd.

OK Mr expert, tell me, is the guy an auto mechanic or a carpenter? Is he a roofer or a plumber? Does he lay carpet or specialize in diesel engines? The questions can go on and on.

Most people who want "any ol job" that pays over $16/hr and don't list what they are looking for are hoping for anything.

using the correct preposition might help your personal jab there, booblinker.

All I did was toss out some job titles that aren't skilled labor and earn a solid paycheck. Don't mistake tech for mechanic. guy is looking for some help and you guys have to be bags of dick, wtf.

Why don't you post your résumé. Or at least things your skilled at.

Even 8 bucks an hour jobs now request a resume
