    Anyone hiring in South Florida?

    Hello kind of embarrassing but I am reaching out for help.

    I have been unemployed for almost a year now and times are getting kind of desperate. I cannot seem to find any work here. I am either over qualified or under qualified. I just can't win it seems.

    So anyway my question is.....is there anyone in my area who is hiring or knows of someone who is hiring?

    Most of my background is in cabling,electronics,networking. But I can pretty much do anything.

    Please if anyone has any suggestions let me know. Thanks.

    Sorry to hear it.
    I was in the same situation until not long ago. It's really tough out there now.

    I have actually been thinking about Corrections. And even thought about mall ninja
    I know I know but seems to be tons of security jobs out there.

    Thanks for the reminder!I might start the corrections process I think.

    I don't know what your age is and it really does not matter. A few possible avenues, or ideas that come to mind would be teaching, maybe at a technical school or applying for work with the State of Florida.

    If you have exhausted all possible unemployment benefits, maybe you can start your own business. Handyman? There are many elderly people in Florida that need their door knob oiled or their roof power washed.

    Health care is the only other thing that I can think of. Some Hospitals have all kinds of jobs not related doctor or nurse. They need drivers, etc.

    These types of jobs are not always going to be advertised. You might need to knock on some doors. Once you get your foot in the door, grab that personnel guy by the tie or collier, and say "I'm Hungry, I can do this job!"

    Get out there and give it a try.

    Times are tough but there are jobs out there.

    There are also other avenues that you may not have explored.

    Target (and other retail merchants) usually has positions for stock clerks on the midnight shift. It doesn't pay well, but some money for buying groceries beats dumpster diving for leftovers.

    Go back to school (or start if you haven't been). Student loans can be used to pay for tuition AND living expenses.
