Help! I left my job of 11 years and have 3/4 of a degree and can't find a job?

Help! I left my job of 11 years and have 3/4 of a degree and can't find a job? Topic: Cover letter for a job examples
June 16, 2019 / By Adilene
Question: I recently took a buyout package to seperate from my employer. The only problem is now I can't find a job. I have been unempolyed for a month and a half and only had one interview. I can't even get an entry level job in retail or fast food. At this point I just want a job. My education is focused on management and I even went as far to run a background check on myself (which came up clean). I have applied for at least 100 jobs, but it is all online and noone has apply in person anymore. What can I do to at least get interviews?

Pick some places where you think you might to work. Do as much research on the company as possible, and see if you might find a fit there. Then, produce a resume that is directed at them and their needs. Be creative. For example, package the resume in a cardboard box. A stick-note on the cover letter could say "I think out of the box." Send it to a department head where you might fit in, not the HR director. If you do this with 5-6 companies, you should get several interviews. Option 2: use your buyout to go back to college for that missing year. You'll then show potential employers that you are ambitious (something that having "3/4 of a degree" does not show.) Good luck.

Did your employer not offer career placement assistance as a part of the buyout? Check with your HR office. Are you eligible for unemployment? I would think so, and if so you have the resources of the state unemployment office as well. Where did you attend school? Even without a degree you can use the placement office services.

Perhaps you can get assistance and go back to school to finish your degree. You may also be forced to move to somewhere with better job opportunities. I know when some friends were thinking of a buyout package they made sure to check the job market and openings before they accepted.

Try some placement services or temp to hire agencies. What about the old fashion newspaper. There are more ways to look for jobs than just online. The want ads are too full for you not to be able to find a job. It may not be your perfect job but there is one out there.

When I moved states, I applied to lietarlly almost 30 jobs in a one month period. All online. After I hadn't heard ANYTHING in 2-3 weeks, I reapplied to the positions (among others) and ALSO SENT, EMAILED, and FAXED my resume. That way you know their bound to get it. If it gets lost somewhere, it'll get there another way. I would reccommend doing that. Keep applying, too, it takes a while ecscpecially around the holiday's, to get a job.

Get a ruler in your hands. Measure things until you start to understand how a ruler works. Measure some stuff and figure out where the center is. Say you measure a book and it's 7/8" thick. You look at your ruler and see that every eighth is divided into two sixteenths, so obviously half of 7/8" is going to be 7/16". If you write that out you have 1/2 x 7/8 = 7/16. And you notice that 1/2 is divided into 2/4 and then into 4/8 and so on, so you can convert anything to anything by multiplying all the numbers on top and then all the numbers on bottom. Other rulers are divided into 10 and 100 parts. But an inch is still and inch, so anything on one ruler can be translated to the other ruler. A half inch on one ruler is 5/10 or 50/100 on the other. An eighth inch is just 12.5 marks when you have 100 marks per inch. A metric ruler divides an inch into 25.4 parts, so a half inch would be 12.7 of those parts. Pretty simple, isn't it? Practice this a bit and people will think you went to wizard school. Percent is simply a ruler with 100 marks. The only confusion is trying to keep track of what the marks represent. You are given that 100 marks are worth 20 throws so each mark is worth 0.2 throw and 65 marks are worth 13 throws. That is 13/20 x 100% = 65% Then you switch rulers. 65% of 25 is 0.65 x 25 = 16.25 so the answer is 17 throws.
