Hi there, it is me again. Just wondering about others is my situation about employment. I have not had a job for a long time and I have no way to support myself. I am living with my parents right now and I need experience in the work force. I just don't know how to do it. Is there places that I can go to for this? Please let me know if you have any advice on this... Thank-you...
Lindsay.

  Hi Lindsay

 Have you ever though about those Temp. Job Servises as they can put you to work a little here and there till you find preminent work and that way you can get back into the swing of getting back to work on a full time job

I would try the temporary agencies as freezinginAK suggested. Careerbuilder and Monster websites are also good for job looking. I hope you find something soon.

there are a few genuine jobs that can be done from home such as phone market research interviewing, but beware of many fake home jobs, especially where you have to pay first

I agree about trying temporary jobs as they wouldnt seem so overwhelming

Well, forgive me if this comes out the wrong way...but you could try being like a domestic type person. I mean, that would be a low stress job and you could work on your own instead of having the pressures that come with an office. I know it's menial, but it might be a way to ease yourself back into the working world. Just for a couple months. Then, as your more used to getting out and doing stuff then you could take on an office-type job.

The only negatives I see about the temp agencies is that, well, there's no stability. And it's all going to be office work. If that doesn't bother you, they sometimes offer benefits and that's a big plus. My dad has used temps before...sometimes they're a good solution for small businesses. Anyway, he kept a couple of those people on permanently. So it's not a bad idea at all if you think you can handle the office environment and quick transitions.

Good luck. I'm either going to be hitting the job market soon or I may take over part of my dad's business. Either way it's going to be stressful, but I'm trying to look at it like a positive thing (change is good, after all). Good luck to you and let us know how it goes.

I know where i live there is a group that can help you get organised and find a job but that's in Sydney.

I just started Avon, something I can do from home, working around the kids and even though I may be feeling really ill once I'm out there talking to all the clients (my neighbourhood) I really enjoy it. I even made $100 profit from my first campaign. I think that was because no one had seen Avon for months out here. I've got to get out there later today after doctors visits and pick up my second lot of books.
