    Unhappy NEED HELP! I am unemployed :(

    Sorry Mods,

    Welcome to the real world. Experience and connections are FAR more important than a education. That's something they don't teach you... Good luck!

    Go to craigslist.com and then go to a particular area and then look up job categories.

    Try looking for work at www.indeed.com

    It's a great website that searches a lot more search engines than just monster, careerbuilder, etc.

    I am unemployed and looking too. I've found a lot of leads on this site that don't show up on others.

    Good luck to you. It's a full-time job just trying to find one!
