How Do I Look for a Job When I Can’t Afford Gas?

By Jackie

The job I lost

Hello. My name is Jackie and it’s been 1 1/2 yrs that I’ve been without work. My job closed on me unexpectedly and I’ve been looking for work every since then. Now my unemployment has been exhausted, there’s no money to pay something on bills and my rent is due. I need food on the table as well. Now without money coming in to put gas in my car, how do I go out and look for a job???  This is a no win situation!

What it’s like being unemployed

downes couch web Being without work is such a terrible thing , you have lost your sense of security. The family is depending on you and you can’t provide when you’ve been the backbone that supported them! You feel like you have let everyone down and you lose a part of your identity.

Editor’s Note: I have stories like this coming in every day.  The news says that the economy is strong… then where are the jobs and why are our Veteran Hero’s not getting work?  Our Sponsor 2KonnectKares has a solution that works for anyone willing to go to work.  It’s not a freebie, but it’s a scholarship that will help people get back on their feet, making the kind of money needed to put bread on the table and pay the bills. And it can benefit their friends and family as well. Please support the cause by donating something today. We have people who have donated just $5 and some who have donated $5000… it’s up to you and what you think it’s worth to help those who have fought to protect your right to work and play and be safe in this country. I think it’s worth a lot!  Just $250 will help to scholarship and build a job for a 2kHERO for 4 months that will grow into a solid career for them for a lifetime. Be supportive… donate today.

Bitter and Stressed Out by Unemployment

I wonder if you can feel the heartache and frustration in this veterans story?

The job I lost

I lost my sales job. It was bogus in the first place but I first left because it was so bad and then they wanted me to return. I did, but then I was basically given my last check.

What a joke, to say the least.

It has been the roughest times in my life to be unemployed right now. Everything is so hard and I don’t know who to reach out to at this point. It seems like every job that I get doesn’t last and isn’t working for me.

It’s rough and miserable. I don’t have money to do anything life is hard and cold it seems. I’ve never had this problem before in my life and I’ve never felt so bitter and stressed out before in my life.

Advice

  • I don’t have advice right now, to be honest. Sell drugs? I think that earns people a lot of cash and I’ve been considering it.
  • I think that would be the best option, not hardly but I’m actually considering it.
  • Honolulu really is a twisted city. In the long run you see it and realize how cruel and sick people are, counting myself at one time. There’s hatred and racist garbage that always makes things worse.

What is the Veteran’s HERO Scholarship Program?

Click on the link to the right to donate… Thank you…

The Veteran’s HERO Scholarship Program is one where 2KonnectKares is gathering funds together to implement a working program that helps a Veteran  who is unable to get a job because of health or disabilities issues, or is someone who has tried to find work and does not have the skills needed to secure a job other than menial labor or someone who isn’t making the income needed to provide even the basic necessities for him/herself or their family, make enough money monthly to support themselves financially.

The problem?  Lack of ability, lack of skill, lack of education, lack of opportunity, lack of trust.

It’s a growing problem, over 1 million veterans are impacted and 2KonnectKares has identified a solution that will help them get up on their feet  financiallState Unemploymenty with a stable monthly income, by opening up ability options, training, education, opportunity and  believing in them enough to reach out and help.

 2KonnectKares has made alliances with many Home Based Businesses that are working together to start  a personal business for the Veteran, train and teach them how to manage their business and then help that  business get to a point of making enough money to maintain itself into the future.  Within 3 months the  Veteran then has a source of income that is stable, sustainable and growable to whatever level they choose to  take it.

This is not charity… this is not a handout… this is a hand up, a scholarship, a helping hand, a way to learnveteran-hire-me

some new skills and start a new career that will provide for them and their families for the rest of their lives.

No other Veteran support program implemented has taken on a task of this magnitude or this direct to the Veteran him/herself to provide an immediate employment solution.

This requires a huge investment in time and money to make it work, from people like you and me.  It’s taking the Veteran back to learning, helping them start a new business venture and then training them to be successful in their new career.

We are asking anyone and everyone who has ever been blessed by the defense of the Military Veteran to consider helping with this cause.  We ask that you donate some money to give back to those who have served us and who are struggling to get a job and live a normal, productive life as an honorable citizen of the USA.

Please donate something, anything today…   It is greatly appreciated…  and will be put to work to help a Veteran start a new career so they can provide for themselves.

God bless the USA Veteran!
