So I basically have stop looking for jobs.
 

 
This s**t is just too depressing in this town in suburbs of chicago. I can't find a god damn job near 10mile radius from here. The only problem rite now i'm facing is that I had this retail theft from 04 that is in process of clearing up which takes 90 god damn days. I don't think anyone even hires without background check these days. And even if I put that I had convicted on the application it doesn't f**king help. I don't even know where to begin anymore. :angry12:

I'm in the suburbs of Chicago as well. stuck like a mugg. oh well, life goes on. I went to the unemployment office and am collectin' so at least that's good 4 me.
You just reminded me, I need to get something expunged off my record as well. The crazy thing is that I was teachin' high school and they laid off madd teachers in Chicago.

Also in the chicago area...been looking for a job since july. Finally got one but it's s**tty pay and s**tty hours starting Friday. Package handling at FedEx. $10 an hour but only about 4 hrs a day so I'm guessing my check is gonna be just a little over 220 every 2 weeks.

You should try that too if you can't find anything....doesn't hurt to try. Interview was a joke.

yea i just graduated from community college with my a.ssociates with general motors program for autmotive industry. I had applied for couple of companys and I got a call from AT&T service vehicle about them wanting me to fax my degree and setup an interview. Hopefully they call me back after I fax this. Also got a call from aeerotek agency they said to call them back when I get my s**t sealed.

Just keep your heads up fellas and keep trying. I just got hired by Colgate and I have been looking for a job since June since I got laid off. It a part time gig that only pays 16 bucks but ill take what I can get while I'm still getting my degree. Try job placement or any temp work. My school hooked me up with an interview so I got lucky.Good luck everyone.

stop stealing, robbing, and commiting felonies and your job search would be easier.

Jobs are still very limited, but many areas are hiring

Yea it's tough to find a decent job that doesn't require background check. I've been applying and telling the employers the truth for now until my s**ts sealed. It's the waiting game now for me

Same here, I have about 5+ years in the IT Field. Most of these jobs I applied for needs someone who's a expert in Windows Server 2003, which I never bothered to learn when I was working with my dad's self employed business.

Keep your head up, and stay positive.

I dont understand this problem.

If I got fired TOMORROW, or just quit for some reason, I could probably get hired at 10 other places by days end.

If you cant find a job, your either A.Not looking enough, or B.Your standards are to high.

Find a s**tty job while you look for a good one, man. Not a difficult concept.


Edit: I also have felonies, so that isnt an excuse.

Double Edit: You dont have to settle for a s**tty job, either. I make 18 dollars an hour on a good week. Jobs commision based. So it varies, but its never below 14 dollars an hour or so. And my job is EASY AS f**k. And i'm only 22, fresh 22 at that, so thats decent money considering I didnt go to college or any of that. But, just get a s**tty 9 dollar an hour job until you catch a break and find a good job.

Ok, after re-reading your post, heres some advice.

On your app when it asks if you've been convicted of a felony, say yes, then when it asks what it was just say "Will discuss in interview."

That has actually been proven to get you interviews because, as strange as it sounds, the employer is actually curious as to what your felony was. They taught me that in some job-research program while I was locked up.

If you honestly have exhausted all options, then PM me and I will give you some interview advice and suggest some fields for you to look for employment in until you get on your feet.

Edit: Ask your friends! If you have a record, chances are a lot of your friends do, to. So if they have one and they have a job, then their employer will hire somebody with a record. Use every outlet you have. Ask friends and family about there jobs. Its not embarrassing that you cant find a job, at least your LOOKING for a job. Theres plenty of lazy f**ks out there just sitting around collecting welfare making excuses. You looking for a job is a good sign. Network. Use craigslist, and your local newspapers classifieds. But dont be narrow-minded, dont just look in one section that your comfortable in. Think outside the box and apply for different fields of work, and you WILL find a job within the next 3 days. I guarantee it.
