    Unhappy Just lost my job :l

    "The company's moving in a different direction and you're not in that image, etc." The store manager allowed me their personal reference and no ill-will which is good. I'm not even mad, but in the meantime will turn in one or two applications a day and will start making tons of phone calls. Kinda wish like it was a few years ago where I could literally walk door to door and say hi, but everything's done online now so that method doesn't work anymore.

    Any advise or insights on the written above misc? Essentially what I can do is any entry-level position since I'm a high school grad. Have cashier, shelf stocking, and labor experience. I have no real preference for any particular job, don't even mind working at a Walmart as long as the store itself is not tilted with inner-store politics, but I want nothing to do with money or medicine. Thanks for reading.

    Sorry to hear that OP.

    How old are you? If you just need a minimum wage job you can literally find one within a day.

    As a University educated miscer, I suggest going to trade school or becoming an apprentice if you aren't currently engaged in any academic endeavors. Obtaining on the job training and then translating that into certifications/leadership roles that command a hire rate of pay should be a large consideration factor for your future. Sales is also a great path, but it can be difficult to enter the "right" type of sales role based on the situation you described.

    Keep researching roles that are becoming more and more popular based on technology as well if on the job training/trades don't seem very appealing.

    Deliver pizza.

    I was making around 20/hr in college (with the fuel calculation taken out of that number) delivering pizzas. It was actually a fun job where time flies and you dont even have to be nice to the people you are delivering to like a server because they already have the tip ready.

    If you haven't already, get a LinkedIn profile and start networking on there. There are tons of recruiters on there as well that can assist, along with job opportunities.

    Also, one mistake people make when they lose a job is that they don't network with friends or family out of embarrassment of losing a job. Gotta get over that and network with these people since they will be the people who will help you the most.

    Unfortunately, submitting your resume online, a cold submission, is really difficult because your resume basically gets lost in the shuffle and most likely does not stand out among the large number of applicants. Still need to do it, but this is why networking helps, because you can get your face out there and speak with someone directly. You don't necessarily need interviews either. Try setting up coffee/lunch meetings and pick people's brains, see if they have any opportunities for you or if they know someone who can help. Try not to leave these meetings without a name or a new lead.

    Hang in there OP. I got fired from my first job out of college at a bank. Terrible company srs. Getting fired from that job was one of the best things that ever happened to me even though I didn't see it at the time.

    You will be fine, happens to lots of people.

    Before you waste a lot ot time applying, read this. Craigslist is where you want to go. Real people hiring for real jobs. Just remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it is.

    https://www.craigslist.org/about/bes...101949754.html

    Basically it talks about having a resume tailored to the job ypu want, pretty basic stuff and should be simple for your needs. Also a cover letter. Just another page on your resume that actually says why you are excited about the position.

    Sounds like a bit of work but it will put your stuff on top of the stack instead in the mountain with all the others. This guys method works, I have used it a number of times with success.
    "To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other."-- Carlos Castaneda

    22yo. Not mininum wage. No shame in the bottom of the bucket job like a carwash if that's all you can find/do, but I've been there and done that. I wish for a long term career, a forever job type deal.

    Most leading American grocers and drug stores have a "I understand that by signing/clicking "I AGREE" button that my position in a company can be terminated with or without cause" policy of some sorts. I was told the company was moving in a different direction, as in they didn't explain why. I was an overnight shelf stocker at a smaller store. Despite air conditioning and dressing lightly, I broke sweat for 8-10 hours a day for 40 hour weeks. Earned employee of the month a couple of times too. I honestly couldn't tell you a definitive reason.

    Am definitely interested in becoming tradie scum Wouldn't mind being a clerk at a crappy liquor store if that's what's available during this next chapter of my life. I'm not picky. My only criteria is no dead-end minimum wage entry-level positions. The last thing I need is to look like a job-hopper on my resume with a seasonal job at a fast food joint that I up and left out of frustration in three months.

    You're lucky. Every job I've had a "if you call out more than three times you're fired" policy :l

    Factory work isn't a bad idea for me. I don't mind tedious and as long as I serve a purpose in my community I really don't care what I do as long as I can potentially maintain my position there for a long time.

    Not sure if scheduling three interviews in a single day for five days straight is my thing. I'll step it up to three though. Thanks for one upping me RainingBlood

    Before you waste a lot ot time applying, read this. Craigslist is where you want to go. Real people hiring for real jobs. Just remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it is.

    https://www.craigslist.org/about/bes...101949754.html

    Basically it talks about having a resume tailored to the job ypu want, pretty basic stuff and should be simple for your needs. Also a cover letter. Just another page on your resume that actually says why you are excited about the position.

    Sounds like a bit of work but it will put your stuff on top of the stack instead in the mountain with all the others. This guys method works, I have used it a number of times with success.
    Thanks for the tips on the cover letter. I knew how to google and check my city's website but damn never knew that craigslist job oppurtunities weren't just limited to "escorting".

    Go on the IBEW's website and search for the local in your area. All unions (i.e. pipefitters, electrical, teamsters, etc.) have locals. You need to get out of retail bro that chit is for the birds. At your age you need to buckle down and get a real career... you'll blink and be 30. Don't waste your 20's floating.

    Tradie here, if you have labor experience then thats already a foot in the door to industry. Save some money up and look for a pre employment certificate. After that then become an apprentice and get indentured so they can pay for the remaining school. Good luck op, also check with your local government office-- they might have some booklets on resume and cover letter tips.

    If you need something quick, try local businesses, you’d be surprised how many Now Hiring signs are up. Check Craigslist for factory assembly stuff or liquor and convenience stores always need cashiers

    try a temp agency or recruiting firm.

    pros
    - quick hiring
    - if an actual temp position, you can gain experience til you find something you like
    - insurrance
    - if it doesnt work out past your initial trial period, they can move you somewhere else.
    - many can lead to permanent positions.

    Any advise or insights on the written above misc? Essentially what I can do is any entry-level position since I'm a high school grad. Have cashier, shelf stocking, and labor experience. I have no real preference for any particular job, don't even mind working at a Walmart as long as the store itself is not tilted with inner-store politics, but I want nothing to do with money or medicine. Thanks for reading.
    Go to a trade union or walk onto construction sites with boots, hardhat, vest, tools. Could also Apply to maintain golf courses. Wake up at 4am to cut grass. Most peaceful job ever. I'm actually in the same boat myself. Should take my own advice. Ayyyyyy

    The above have already made a ton of great suggestions. Not sharing my exact location on an anonymous forum, that's how people get killed.

    Yeah. I remember trying for jobs in 2017, literally hustled applications for 8 months straight.
