Well, there's really nothing here to work on. You say you'll do anything. Does that include fast food? Retail? If that's the case probably any major city you could find some kind of job in.

I am always amazed at people who are looking for a "guaranteed" anything. There is no such thing as guaranteed in a job or anything else. I think there is more to your story than you are telling here, and I am not sure you are really serious, but if you will do anything as you state, then, you can go anywhere and find something to do. Now, I don't mean to sound flippant with my comments but you need to stop looking for that guarantee and just start doing something. Opportunies are everywhere if you stop and look for them. Since you are so low on the employment scale and willing to do anything, there are plenty of places for a starter job.

well yes... i mean any job is a job..i'll do.. you know..lol.. im just really desperate to get out of cali... and i just left Pittsburgh,pa... or actually i was in Latrobe,pa.. but i left some really good friends i made in a month being there i left them behind ... i feel terrible about just leaving and i have nothing here in california.. It's just a dead end here.. it just doesn't help because i have no money at all to my name... That's why im writing that thread in Desperation... im fricken Desperate but im trying to somehow have a good attitude about it.....

I mean honestly i wish i could just ask some one to put me up for a while.. just so maybe then i find promise and actually a promising future somewhere else.....

Unfortunately... that's probably never gonna happen.... i mean who's gonna trust someone they don't even know.... i mean i wish i had a chance just to move to move somewhere else again... it's a long shot though...

I'll have to find a way for some one to earn my trust somehow....if that's even realistic..... lol..

thanks for the advice though... STL Cards blues 1989

Temp jobs? There are a lot of Temp agencies all over the country in large, medium-sized, whatever cities. They have a variety of job types to fill: semi-skilled or not. I'm not sure you would be able to find many retail jobs these days though.

why not just drive to any city that sounds exciting and rent a motel room and start applying for local jobs?
do you have enough money to survive or how are you surviving now?

I suggest OKC and Tulsa too as well Many jobs, cheap apartments and cost of living, very liveable temperatures and climate, and great people. I would just move there, stay in a long term hotel, apply for jobs, and get started. Do you have any friends to briefly stay with and could you move to their cities? If you'll do anything, you're bound to find a job unless you have a serious criminal record.

Head to the Southeast, Texas, and Oklahoma. The economies remain relatively healthy compared to the rest of the country, and are better poised for future growth after this crunch goes away in about a year.
