Time to face the music

I may very well have to leave AZ.

The sad reality is that I am having zero luck finding another job, despite the massive size of Phoenix/Glendale, and if some random grocery store or other low-end job doesn't give me a shot soon, I'll have to leave.

My bf has already asked, "How could you do that to me?" Well....what choice do I have?! Nobody is hiring me.

Maybe you could try part time nanny job or dog walk, they are usually looking.
That's a tough spot to be in for sure.

I will say this... and you can take it for what it's worth. If you haven't tried cold calling or asking to speak with the manager to learn more about those specific positions, that may be worth doing. Emails and job messages get lost in the noise, but reaching out and calling would be a way to set yourself apart.

I hope something opens up soon!

Does this mean you two would break up or is it just more of a forced temporary separation? Plus I thought retail places were hiring no matter what.

@SilkenMist we found a cheaper place so that issue was resolved. He would stay here.

@DearAmbellina2113 is there any reason you cannot stay with him while looking for work?
DearAmbellina2113 · 41-45, F
@SilkenMist I don't want to be a burden on him.

@Carla I have applied at Kroger (called Frys out here), Aldi, Albertsons/Safeway, The Dollar Tree, and Walgreens. No calls from any of them.

@DearAmbellina2113 is it possible that your phone might be automatically blocking those calls because some phones will just flat out block calls if it thinks that it is a scam. Probably best to get a hold of them because of that.
i'm sure any grocery store willc all you they would be crazy not to.

if you left where would you go to?
DearAmbellina2113 · 41-45, F
@SW-User I've already applied at 2 grocery stores and they haven't called me.
@DearAmbellina2113 some times you have to reach out to them thats how i got my old job at walmart years ago i had to called them its weird but it works.

Where do you plan to go? Lots of job openings in Houston.

@justme21 I would live in a box before moving back to Houston.
