Central Coast of California. Between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. Pretty big area. The jobs are out there here. It's the difference between "job" and "career" at my age. I'm 46. I am one of the "over qualified". :) It will turn I feel it.

Oregon in a small town in the valley. ALL of the jobs are 3 hours away. Not an easy commute.

But I'll keep plugging away. Hopefully the company my husband works at will have something open up soon.

Hope springs eternal ....

I'm in Tampa, FL. I apply for all sorts of work here - art, design, web, secretarial, and the usual fast-food places as last resorts.

I look into tons of freelance, but the folks who seek out freelancers don't often understand even the basics of what they're asking for, and in the rare event when they do know what they want, they don't understand the skill or value of the project. (Ex: "I want you to replicate the Mona Lisa. I want it in high-quality acrylic paints, and twice the original scale, on canvas and framed. It should be done in two days and I will pay you $50")

I also look into telecommute jobs, but no dice.

I've sworn off retail. It's cut-throat and the corporations and companies that operate retail establishments run their employees into the dirt, demanding perfection and demi-gods, but only willing to compensate minimum wage appropriate for high-school drop-outs.

I am living with my mom in Birch Bay, Washington! My job search is including Washington, Idaho, Oregon, California, and Colorado!

I was originally born in Alberta (all my relatives are in western Canada), grew up in Texas (Dallas mostly and went to Texas Tech University) and just spent the last two years in New Hampshire!
