Are you on employflorida? My advice is to get started in thatToday, I learned the unemployment office does not help people like they say they do. They ARE liars...
I went to my counseling session at unemployment. Well, as usual, a waste of time. The woman was very, very nice, I don't have a problem with her at all. Turns out they don't have any work training classes and do not have a way to help you if you go to school.
Basically, they will help you go to school, but not really. They want you to check out fafsa and pell grants first, and then, and, now here's the kicker, You HAVE TO HAVE A JOB!!!!!
Now, I know I can go to school if I have a job, I don't need unemployment to tell me that. I thought the point of training was to get a job. These people want me to work full time and then go to school until 10pm everyday. She wants me to try to enroll in school by January. I reminded her that I didn't have a job. How is this helping???? It is not. Sorry, but I was very disappointed. The woman even gave me tips on how to job hunt. Gee, I've been doing it for 2 years now. Oh well, back to the drawing board.....
first..http://www.clmworkforce .com/careerSeekers.asp and if you
are considering school, go straight to a community college or technical college and seek out a counselor to go over what new
career you may be interested in, now is the time for change, I
truly believe this. I haven't been in school in 30 years, I start
college in January..I applied for the Pell Grant right on line..got it all squared away, than I took some part time employment. If you are on unemployment they will subsidize the difference. It's a journey you might consider taking? Right now the right jobs are so scarce, this I know. I find people are feeling the pressure even if they are working. Salaries are being cut, hours are being taken away, most jobs are part time or on call..at this point we are more at the employers mercy than ever before, so you just have to take what little bit you can get and just keeping moving small steps forward if necessary. Just don't give up on yourself, you are not at fault for a bad economy and I don't see it getting much better for a while so you just have to improvise and get ready for new changes in your life, change can be a good thing if you're not afraid of it...you just need to embrace it and keep moving forward stronger than before..don't let the world knock you down, you know who you are! That always remains..our will can take us many places in life. Good Luck
