The last nine years have been hell. I have lost jobs due to closings, and being let go. So my resume looks so inconsistent that no one will give me employment, let alone an interview. Also, my personal troubles are sad, but I am not here to share those things with strangers. I just want to know what to do since I refuse to be homeless. Since I live in Philadelphia and I see the homeless population, it is scary. I have mixed feelings for those that can do it. I respect them for being able to live on the streets and survive like that. But I also feel sad since many are hopeless and waiting for some charity to help them out for the day. I can't do that, it will be way too much torture for me since I slightly suffer from depression. So if things do not work out this month (no more money left to pay for living), I am seeing what is on the other side. Thanks for any advice, hope it will help. It is sad when you want to work but no one will allow you to.

P.S. When I was young I always said money does not mean a thing. That is a lie, money is our human way of feeling like we are great men and women. So if you have the mind set that I had at a young age, please change it or you will end up like me at age forty three, alone and feelings of hopelessness.

It is not hopeless. Your job may be over, but you can still qualify for unemployment. If you suffer from depression, I would even suggest going to a doctor and being placed on disability, either temporary disability or SSI, depending on what your doctor says. It is enough money to where you will not be homeless. You are young enough to go back to school and change careers. Financial aid can also help with the costs of living. Last, try www.usajobs.gov and www.governmentjobs.com- there are a lot of government jobs listed on both sites. List the jobs on your resume that are more relevant to the job posting and explain why you are no longer there in the description. It can be a brief sentence. The way the economy is cutbacks and closings are understandable, you just need to explain it. There are also job centers that help with resume writing free of charge. There are also websites. Don't lose hope. Keep looking. Good luck with everything. I am here if you want to talk

Do you have any family or friends? Maybe you can stay with them or get some financial support? Otherwise, there are so many programs, like food stamps, housing (not shelters), welfare, that you can use. Don't be ashamed, its no different than a student getting financial aid. What about a change of scenery? Funds might be low, but other cities have lots of work. Send resumes on a public computer to other cities. Open your horizons to other career or life opportunities. Whatever you do DON'T GIVE UP.
Think about the person you want to be in 5 years. 10 years. Think about giving a speech to a room of people who are going through a tough time and are in despair. What is your advice going to be to get them out of the rut? Become that person.
Remember, God loves you. Times are bad, but they are not hopeless. You can do this.
