I am 21, with skills (and almost a degree), job experience, etc. There is no reason why I should have trouble getting a job right now. NONE. Now the scary part is that it has proven to be nearly impossible. I don't know what to do. Bills need to be paid tomorrow and there are no jobs to be had. The phone isn't ringing and I've spent my last dollar in gas to go job hunting. So now I will be walking or biking everywhere. I've called/applied to 38 different businesses in the last 7 days or so...If the job market doesn't turn around and things keep getting steadily worse like they have been...shit is gonna get really ugly when there's no jobs and no money. Actually, Texas' jobs are more available than anywhere else in the states right now(or so I'm informed), so I keep thinking to myself "Well if i can't get a job in texas then i cant get a job anywhere." I don't know what I'm going to do after tomorrow when everyone wants their money. If I could just make a quick $200 I could get by. I have nothing to sell (except my car which is out of the question), no one to ask, no collateral for a loan......just don't know what to do. I have no idea how I'm gonna work this out and I definitely don't want creepy people on craigslist to pay me $60 an hour to lick my toes or anything desperate like that, but I AM ALMOST TO THAT POINT. Something's gotta give.
Please tell me I'm not the only one feeling this pressure

My brother joined the national guard to pay off his loans.
I enjoy washing my clothes with Tide

Yeah, I'm in the same-ish situation.


The only job I could get was a telemarketing job at a place that hires addicts and convicts.


Most of my coworkers have at least one felony.


I'm at an all time low for income, job security (they fire you on Monday if you didn't meet your sales quota the previous week), and workplace morale.


It's really hard to not hate my life with a passion...

You could come to Europe and teach English-it's what I did. Not a bad deal, really, and it pays really quite well.

I'm interested. How did you do that? Who did you contact?
