I feel that I am unlucky with my life right now. I tried to find jobs, but employers wouldn't offer me a job or bother to call me. I asked for professional opinion about my resume and they said that my resume is excellent.

I tried to find some nanny positions, but cannot work for this type of job because they said that I have a disability that may would influence on the families' needs.

I have tried to volunteer for the summer camp, but they told me that it is filled with other volunters. They said they don't need me this year. I am so miserble and depressed. I feel helpless and don't know what to do. I also tried to find a car, but the price is still too high. I would have to get a job to make more money that I can buy a car. I feel that my self-esteem is downsizing because no one wants to help me to get myself back on feet.

What can I make my life better and have employers give me a chance? My family said that they cannot help me at all. They said that I have to do that on my own.

hey, sorry you are feeling so low right now.

Many people dont hear from employers after an interview or even after sending a letter, my ex is looking for work, has been for 5 months now and as far as i know hasnt received one reply..

Why dont u try volunteering in another field, try a nanny agency.. They usually have jobs on offer, if not do some babysitting...

I applied at a nanny agency and their first offer was weekends, its not what i wanted so why dont you do something like that to get u started if u are prepared to give up your weekends.

You said u have a disability so you cant do nannying but at the end of the day i dont think they have the right to forbid you to work for them, thats discrimination...

I am unaware of your disability so i can only say if it doesnt stop u doing your job fully then they cant really do that...

Not all of us are prepared too so u may be lucky.. chin up ok... just remember it doesnt always stay the same.... Things will get better and never give up, the perfect job will come to you, it just takes time....

its late for me so i hope i made some sense. good luck

I feel for you Silent Jaguar as I feel low right now.

I have no job, which equals no money. I have tried getting a job such as ringing up agencies, going to interviews, sending out application forms, buying jobs day papers, it's not that there aint no jobs out there, it's just that no-one is willing to take me on, I'm frustrated.

I was meant to be going on a date tomorrow and all week I thought, I know this week is going bad but I have something to look forwards 2, erm not anymore, he sent me a message saying something important has come up and that he cannot make it. Charming.

College is not going well and I am falling behind, she threw another assignment brief at me today for the next unit, I aint bothered looking at it yet I am so down today.

Also I fell out with someone and now I have not been invited to this day out thing that has been organised.

I have not spoken to anybody today but this is to prove I'm in shit as well concerning similar things to you but u are not alone, if you need to talk just track me down, I normally come on.

Bye for now....SOPHIE x

alycia was absolutley right, it is dicrimination. I would report them to the labor board or whatever similar org. you have in your area. They cannot say that. This is not 1920's.
Babysitting good idea, you can prove yourself and have excellent referances. It takes a minute to get started but you can do it.

All it takes is one lucky break. Just one.

I know quite a few people who started in what might seem like dead end jobs. One worked as an attendant at a tanning place. Another works at a drive through coffee stand. BOTH of them were offered chances to interview for jobs by their regular patrons. One of them is now making $50K a year as a trainer, and the other is about to start as an office assistant for an insurance company.

Whether we know it or not, we're interviewing for new things in life every time we interact with someone (or choose not to).

It only takes ONE lucky break. Hang in there.

Silent -

You sound awfully discouraged. I can truly understand your struggle to find a job when you are disabled. I don't know the nature of your disability, but I am legally disabled, also. I am limited in the number of hours I can work, as well as the Federal "ceiling" on what I am allowed to earn in any given calendar month. It has made finding a job difficult...but it is not impossible. Personal contact is much more effective than electronic resumes. It helps alot for the prospective employer to meet you face-to-face. I would get out and apply for positions IN PERSON. Show them who you are and that you are capable of functioning well and meeting their needs, despite any disability.

I am rooting for you. Don't give up.

Be blessed today.
