2017 Job Searching (Mandatory Time Wasting)

January 5, 2018

 

Here is a list of all the jobs I have on my log from December 2016-2017.  (It is required by the Department of Labor and welfare programs that clients keep a record of our job searches. I posted a similar list several years ago, but both these lists combined still doesn’t include every job application since becoming homeless.) If you want to say that my homelessness is my fault or that I’m not trying, you need to come up with a higher number than 324 for the number of jobs to which you think I should have applied and why.  Also note that I worked between 35-42 hours per week until April 10, when I was let go alongside of nearly seventy people from a call center job that paid the local minimum wage ($11 an hour in 2017).  Almost none of these job applications resulted in an interview.  Those that did are in bold.  Positions in red are those I identified as an entry-level marketing scam or the insurance business opportunity scam. They are also bold if I made that determination at the interview rather than beforehand through their website or e-mails. Most of the reds (and admittedly, some of the bolds) were Howard Giske applying to them for me.

If you want to blame my homelessness on me, first you have to tell me to what kinds of jobs I should be applying that I’m not, keeping in mind that my medical condition limits the kind of work I can do (I must limit standing, walking, lifting, bending, pushing, and pulling, be able to take bathroom breaks every sixty to ninety minutes, and have freedom to move my legs as I sit–summed up most simply as “medically limited to a desk job”) and my educational background (B.A. in English and communication; M.A. in cinema and media), and the necessary salary that allows one to leave the shelter system. And don’t tell me teaching because I don’t have a teaching license, am not going to be spending money on a teaching license, and have been rejected twice sans interview by New York City Teaching Fellows, which tells you on their postcards not to apply again unless you have something new to bring to the table.  In terms of going back to school, you should know that I have $51k in student debt ($66k after interest last I checked) and got a 340 on the math portion of the GRE (my verbal score was 660, analytical a bit higher).
