I've been out of work now for 2 years, doing odd jobs as I can. I've applied to every place in this GD county, and not one call back, even when I follow up.
I am a nice guy, age 30, hard working, and have a college degree, and I am willing to work for minimum wage.
Why is it so hard to find a Job?
I mean seriously, is it like this for everyone?

Work on developing a better vocabulary, and attend a church, and develop your faith. That'll go a long way.
There a five people waiting for each job, and more coming with the unemployment checks running out. It's a tough market. UC has no jobs open hardly ever anyway.

You are H-I-L-A-R-I-O-S !!!!! Where do you come up with this stuff. This may be even funnier in the long run, keep us posted, I think they have WiFi in hell.

I feel your pain. I am in the same boat. But I am sure there will be a bunch of smart ass replies to this topic. It has to be your fault, you must be a liberal, your to good to work for minimum wage. You get the idea. My advice is leave Blairsville unless you are tied there with a mortgage payment.

It's a GOOD time to go back to school. Get your PELL and HOPE grants, so basically go for free, with living expenses. Plus you're elgible for the student health insurance, which is a biggie. A lot of people go back and take classes at community colleges, just to get the health insurance.

August 2010 was a LONG time ago. I would guess that each of those employers with the exception of government now employ less people.

Dang, I must not know how to work the system...I am "back in school"...but not offered ALL this..yeah I had a couple hundred left out of financial aid but that doesn't even cover the gas.Where do I sign up for the Health Insurance??
#10 Mar 6, 2013
Health ins ? Whe I was there, enrolled , the ins. only covered getting hurt on campus and I know some that the ins. failed to pay when they were hurt on school property doing school activity .

You must not have the "right" last name or must not have been a childhood friend of the "right" people.
By the way, the number of people directly employed by the school system, when added to the family members of those employed by the school system, presents a formidable obstacle to the defeat of the school sales tax -- too many that'll vote to pad their own pockets, if seems.

That was probably 30 yrs ago, or high school activity insurance. Things have changed. Student health insurance costs about $150/mo and is very similar to a typical private job health plan.

You could probably update the info if you really wanted. You know they have remotes and phones that will work your computer from the couch now.

Nepotism plays a big part in trying to find a job here.
Doesn't matter if you have the credentials,the job is given to the person who has the family connections,etc.
#16 Mar 6, 2013
No mention of the Union Co. govt., schools or otherwise. Yet, Chatuge Regional in Towns (owned by Union General) is mentioned. Wonder why?
#17 Mar 6, 2013
It just ****es me off, I know a family right know and everyone single one of them is on disability, and they all work side jobs under the table, not one **** thing wrong with any of them.
And I want to work, beg to work, and follow up.
Seriously I am thinking about running an ad in the paper with a $1000.00 reward to anyone who gets me a job, if you guys see that in the paper it's me.
This is just ridiculous.
#18 Mar 6, 2013
Where you going to get the $1000.00?
#19 Mar 6, 2013
It will come out of each paycheck $100 a month for 10 months.

My daughter has applied anywhere and everywhere for over a year and she can't even get a call back.
Everyone want's her to apply online. Whatever happened to meeting someone face to face, observing their spelling, use of words, manners and personal appearance. You don't get all that online.
Even with follow-up call's and visit's it's the same old "we will get back to you".
Unemployment is way up in this county, regardless of what you read in the paper. You would think one of the county paid groups, would put more effort into bringing a reliable, big business into this area, instead of taking tax-payer funded trips overseas to observe foreign countries commerce.
We have enough restaurants and retail stores, we need some manufacturing plants.
