Here's a website that has a lot of legitimate work-from-home jobs:Rat Race Rebellionhttps://ratracerebellion.com
Depending on where you're located, Whole Foods Market starts their employees at a minimum of $15 per hour, if you're willing and able to work around others and be on your feet a lot. (I wouldn't be able to do such work.)
Then, there's jobs like Amazon Flex, if you have a suitable vehicle and a smartphone.
My opinion is that sending resumes has a very low probability of working, unless you've already established contact with someone in a company and they've asked you to send them a resume directly. Otherwise, sending resumes to general e-mail addresses or replying to jobs through websites like Monster.com is somewhat akin to playing the lottery. In fact, the lottery probably has better overall odds.
Now, of course, doing those things is better than doing nothing, so I don't want to discourage them. However, you may also want to get more creative in your approach, given what seems to be a very competitive job market.
* Sign up with various staffing agencies like Adecco, TEKsystems, etc.
* Try to work with a recruiter, as they sometimes know about
jobs that aren't advertised
* Network through LinkedIn
* Ask family and friends to share your resume at the companies where they work
There are just a few of many ideas. Basically, you have to find a way to burst through all the noise and bring attention to yourself. Years ago, I would put on a suit, drive to a company, complete a paper application, and leave it with a paper copy of my resume. But, those days are pretty much over. If not for Coronavirus, I might suggest buying a gorilla suit and personally delivering a paper copy of your resume dressed like an ape. These days, something like that might get a person attacked or arrested.
