I’m having such a hard time finding work. I have been looking for about a year now and I’m at a loss on what to do next. The issue for me is that I have experience in many different fields and no clear career path. Also I have two little ones so taking on a job for $17 an hour just won’t work and wouldn’t be worth it for me and my family. I know I’m not the only one going through this and I can’t believe companies are out here offering only $11 of $12 dollars for entry level customer service work. That pay wasn’t enough for me back in 2004 so i’m sure it’s even crappier for kids today 15 years later.
I am fortunate enough to have a partner who makes enough to support us and for that I am grateful. But i’m ready to get out of the house and have my own life outside of family life. I has been 3 years that I’ve either worked at home with my baby or have been unemployed all together so I’m so ready for a new job.
The situation seems so impossible and I’m trying to stay positive and contemplate my next steps but its hard out here for a SAHM (Stay at home mom).
