Giving up will NOT get you a job
I read an article in a local paper this week that explained the National Unemployment number remained at 10%, but more importantly, job searchers are giving up hope. They have just stopped trying because jobs are not available.
THAT IS POOP! Don’t you EVER give up!! And, there ARE jobs available. They might not be a perfect fit for your background, your education, or your dreams…but they are jobs. You have to apply, network, and go GET them.
CareerBuilder.com, advanced search with the cities being Houston, The Woodlands, and Spring and any FULL-TIME job within 50 miles. The following results came up:

Don’t you EVER give up!! There ARE jobs available. They might not be a perfect fit for your background, your education, or your dreams…but they are jobs. You have to apply, network, and go GET them.
Cold today...but HIRING!
