Get a cheap, light mower and go house to house asking if anyone would like their lawn mowed. Get a weed-whacker, too. Sometimes going back to the basics pay. My dad did that when times were tough in the 70's and I did it as a teen for extra money.

There is always room in the job market for drug dealers, bank robbers and pimps.



If it pans out, then you're set. If you get caught then you're set fo 15-20!

Go back to school. Take up nursing. That's a profession that won't be outsourced.

This time of year you could put Christmas lights on houses. I know a guy that gets $150 a job for a normal size house here. In CA you could probably get more.

I'm in a college town so there are a lot of broke college students around in the same boat as me....

trying to keep crack as a last ditch effort. Good call on the lawn mowing though

You could also invest in a membership at a tanning salon and then go hang out in front of the Home Depot.

Can you grow a mustache and afford a pair of cowboy boots?

UPS started peak season hiring in Oct, but they still pick up a few when others cannot hang. Seasonal hiring should be up a little.

In the same situation 17 years ago, I was the first guy through the uneployment office every day, including my birthday, which I did not take off from my job search. Alas, on my b-day, I landed the job I'll likely retire from.

Don't despare, every day look hard for a job as if it is the day you will find one. They're out there, ya just gotta look harder than you do during better times.

i have found, over the years, that you can always find a job in a resturant or a grocery store- might not pay a lot, but will keep you going until something better comes up- good luck!
Link Posted: 11/16/2008 7:46:29 PM EDT
Think about essential goods and services. What do people have to have and have to do on a regular basis?


Here's a good one: Shopper for hire. Works particularly well if you have a large elderly population in your area that on average is fairly well-heeled. You get their groceries for
them as needed. Combine several accounts per trip, if possible. You can easily clear
200 bucks a day if you do it right. You'll need a decent sized vehicle (a van would be
ideal) and several cheap styrofoam coolers for the cold stuff.

Lawn service can be lucrative but the investment in equipment required to do a fast
and good (spell that "profitable") job isn't just chump change. Good, fast, reliable
equipment costs a little money. And you're sure to need at least one good partner
or worker to help you get the jobs done quickly.

What are your skills?

The search sucks, but as others have posted it could be worse.
Keep your chin up & fingers crossed, you'll find what your looking for.

Come to Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Department of Corrections is always hiring correctional officers.

After you have been an Officer for a couple of years, you can apply for a non uniform administrative desk job.

Trust me, I promise you, if you apply, you will get hired.

I'm not really fully on the job market yet (student), but here's what advice I do know.

The economy's in a downturn, so a lot of things aren't hiring. But a lot of places are. You can't have a sit-down restaurant without waiters. You can't have a large store without stockers and porters. There's no shame in doing a low-level job if that's what you need to do to survive.

You can talk to local EMS, fire, and police agencies. Chances are, at least one of them's hurting for people and most will pay while they train in exchange for a commitment.

And if you're young, strong, and healthy, there is always, as suggested, a distinguished career in our military.

I am a professional carpenter. I have been building new homes for over thirty years and was a foreman for a large construction company. I was laid off last January due to the housing slump. I started doing home repairs and remodeling, anything to make a buck. Heck, a few weeks ago I stripped shingles and re roofed a house. Its hard times right now for my profession, but in desperate times I'll do grunt work for a buck.
