I currently work retail at Marshalls. However, I recently graduated college and been having no luck finding a second job. I applied to a few recently and no calls at all. My boyfriend also tried finding a second job. He got lucky and got hired but they had to come up with a schedule to fit his current schedule for his night job. He works at a supermarket from 7pm-11pm 5 days a week. He got a call a few hours ago from the new job saying they couldn't come up with a schedule for him because of a sleep law even though he lives pretty close to this place. He would of worked 5 days a week from 8am-1pm and it was only a 10-15 minute bus ride from where he lives. Then he would of went home for like 5 hours and then went to the night job, He could of done it. I never even heard of a sleep law where you need 8 hours of sleep to work another job. Oh for this law we are in NYC if it helps :/

How can we both find second jobs? I even looked for more retail because I had retail experience and nope, nothing. My mom told me she might ask her boss at her part time job that is once a week if they can hire me because I volunteered their a lot helping my mom and I know the job and stuff and its once a week for my mom but the program is twice a week. I'm sick and tired of only one job that pays $10 an hour and I want to get a second job, get an apartment, etc but no luck. Even the employment agency near me only has jobs like security guards and truck drivers up. *sigh*

I also walk my neighbors dog and they pay me $15 to walk for one hour, but they haven't called me recently because they are home and their daughter is home from school (college) but i think she went back now..

Any advice on what to do to get a second job?

I would try websites like Indeed and Idealist.org.

I've had second jobs at grocery stores. I don't know what you majored in and if there is any possibility of getting a job in your field that pays more, but I'd keep looking in that direction as well. As you know, $10/hour isn't a lot when you're trying to live independently.

Do you have a set schedule, or does it vary? A set schedule makes a lot easier to find another job. You could possibly make more with set hours working at a school in the office or as a paraprofessional or the custodial staff. It wouldn't equal 40 hours a week, but it might be easier to get a second job to accommodate that.
