Job hunting....where to start?
Posted 20 August 2012 - 05:54 PM
My problem is I have no idea where to start. I have only worked in the vet industry for my entire adult life. Before that I was a waitress and I don't want to go back to that. I don't know what I want to do even. I need a job, we cannot live off BFs income alone. I don't really care where I work. I just need to work!
I will likely be applying to places like McD's, Timmies, retail places. How do I do this? I don't even know how to write a resume or cover letter of these type of jobs! What are the "keywords" they look for.
Another question...I have T every other weekend. I will not work those weekends if at all possible. I don't know how to tell this to prospective employers. I will likely be giving up my time during the week with him so I cannot see giving up my weekends too.
I'm also looking for some "non-traditional" idea....heck I mentioned to my BF I think I'll toss resumes at the funeral homes because I am good at at least pretending to be empathetic LOL. (actually, I am very good at handling death of loved ones since I did it so much as a vet tech) I'd love ideas of other jobs that are a little outside the box!
HELP!!! I'm totally lost! I have 5 weeks EI left then I need to find work very shortly thereafter because we will be beyond not being able to pay bills if not.

Also with back to school, a lot of retail stores like Home Sense, Winners, Bouclair, Home Outfitters etc… tend to have day openings and usually don't need weekend or just one weekend a month. Tim Hortons at Walker @ Division is hiring again.
Good luck! Job hunting sucks!
