  1. I'm having a really hard time coming up with anything to put on a cover letter. " To Whom It May Concern: I am applying for the Temporary File Clerk position advertised on craigslist. I’m seeking a temporary entry-level position that I can do while waiting to resume school later this year. I’ve carefully reviewed the job description, and I’m confident in my ability to competently perform all of the tasks stated therein Attached is a brief resume for you to review. While I understand that my limited work experience is a strike against me, my awareness of this deficiency is motivati
  2. I've been in pretty bad shape because my job prospects seem so abysmally bad that I just collapse in disgust every time I pull up Craigslist. I've been reading about the economic boom in ND and all the jobs that have grown up around the energy industry there; do you think it would be crazy or unnecessarily drastic to relocate in the hope of overcoming my barriers to employment? It's not my kind if place but at least it has a real economy.
  3. There are no jobs for which I am qualified as far as I know. My prospects seem nonexistent. School? It just seems insurmountable....first, knowing what field, then actually finishing, then actually landing a job... it seems like an impossibly far away target to hit. Careers... as a result of years of inactivity and near complete value starvation, I've lost all contact with interests... the only things that I know interest me are ideas (Objectivism and Capitalism) and finance (investing). I admire tech products a great deal, but don't see myself as a software engineer... the shale revolutio
  4. parents + disability...it has been my ambition to get off disability ever since I went on it, but I haven't been able to make it happen, despite having previously attempted both of the options I stated
  5. Here's what I'm up against: 1. I have a serious health problem, rheumatoid arthritis, which although not disabling, prohibits me from performing most unskilled jobs, and all jobs that require prolonged standing or repetitive motion. I am not comfortable working in the kinds of jobs that remain open to me, i.e. clerical, secretarial or call center work. 2. At 25, I have no recent work experience or accomplishments, which probably sends up a HUGE red flag to employers that something is seriously wrong with me, which is true. 3. I have no skills, experience or useful education (just a usele
  6. The first thing at which I need to succeed is attaining suitable employment of any kind. The second thing is finding a career, something I can do long-term. The impediments to both seem almost insurmountable. After that, I can start thinking about relationships.
  7. First, I apologize for the dark post. I am not posting this in any way to garner sympathy, but only to promote my quest for clarity. I am a 25 year old female. Due to a combination of adverse circumstances outside of my control, and my own failure to better cope with those circumstances, my life has degenerated to the point of being an ugly train wreck. I am suffering due to both a total lack of essential values and the presence of major negatives. I have strong doubts about whether it's possible to attain essential values like meaningful or even appropriate work and love. If I don't take
