Hello Ladies,
Since the last time we spoke. I had got so many positive responces. So I threw My BF out. Since then we have just recently tried to work things out. He has been completely sober since. He thanks God for opening his eyes and getting him through his withdrawls. However that is not the reason for this request.
My Request is I was recuited from my stable job to a bigger company. I was promise everything you can imagine, full family benefits, a 4 dollar pay raise, double the sick time. I was definately to good to be true. In the interview one of the employees had mentioned they had ran through 8 employees in six weeks.(So I should have seen it coming) Anyhow I was determined to go above and beyond. I nned that job. All I want is to get with a company with room to grow(Because I am a really hard worker and with no education past my H.S Diploma, with room to grow I know I have alot to offer a company.) So anyway, with everything going on in my personal life, I still gave 150%! I would get to work early(UNPAID) and take a short lunch(UNPAID) and leave late EVERYDAY(UNPAID). And I managed to stay above water! With no training and no experience in alot of the duties that was expected of me. I was hired as an Administrative Assistant( Front Desk Receptionist), but ended up doing Human Resource, Facilities, Travel Agent for the entire company,(with an unrealistic spend budget) Shipping and Rec.(They never once mention this in the interview, Never mentioning there was NO Shipping and Rec. Department. That I would have to cover that entire dept.)And plenty other responsibilities.
AND I DID IT!!! I would come home completely drained. But I did it! And I was proud that I can provide for my family. And that soon my kids can have quality health insurance. My daughter has really bad cavaties and the only dentist that Santa Clara Coumty provides reaked of urine and was very unsanitized. I was not going to let them touch my babies mouth.
So a month passes and the day before my B-Day I got my Birthday Card and within a hour I was "Layed-Off"!!!!! And as I was packiing up my things I was told "please use us a reference. We know you gave us a 110%" I am not mad at the situation because I gained thicker skin from this and confidence. I proved that I can hit the floor running! That I can keep up with college grads and that I can do anything I put my mind to.
So here I am a month later with no job. No income and basically begging employers for a job! What upsets me is I am someone who is very dedicated to every opportunity I have recieved and am an honest, hard-working tax-paying mother and can't get a job.
SO CAN ANYONE HELP?????
Thanks and God Bless,
K. B.

Hi K. - I just wanted to update my reply to you to let you know that I met 10-15 people at the Holiday Boutique yesterday who are looking for ways to earn extra money and to have a "Plan B" just in case something happens with their jobs. I am inviting people to come to my home for my Referral Co-op "Coffee Breaks". Over a cup of coffee or tea (cookies will be served! :o), I can explain how with very little out of pocket expense, you can learn to maximize/leverage the very generous compensation plan of XanGo to build a profitable home-based businessand help others to do so as well. It is not a big time commitment for you because I have the meetings in my home, and you simply "refer" others looking for additional income for a "Plan B" to me. If you love to help people, now is the time to find out how you can do that as a XanGo authorized distributor. With the job market being what it is currently, many more people are looking at network marketing as a risk-free and recession-proof way to supplement income and qualify for other rewards that XanGo offers. I would like to invite you to come to my home in San Jose (or I can come to yours if more convenient) to go over this easy to learn system to improve your life as well as the lives of others!

I look foward to hearing from you hopefully in the near future! V.

Hi K.,

I was laid off because my company transfered my position to the East Coast over a year ago. I have been unable to find a job for some time. I too am an honest hard-working tax paying mother wishing to find work. I always try to do the extra mile but have not be able to find anything. So I am now pursuing my own business. This business is real. The Corporate founders are real. If you know three people that are interested in building a business then you could be well on your way. We have just lauched a skin nutritional system that is toxin free. If you are interested on learning more Visit http://www.referralco-op.com/ for any questions you might have. or send me an email.

Hi K.,

Have you checked Craig's List: http://www.craigslist.com

Another idea is to take your talents and advertise your services on Craig's List. For example, I know someone who knows Quick Books really well - she gets $25/hour to do bookkeeping for several different clients.

If you want to brainstorm some ideas, let me know :)

Wishing you ... health, happiness and prosperity,
G.
