Just got fired from my job of 9 years at Walgreens in Williamsburg.

Anyone know of job openings in the area or ideas for me to support my wife and 1 year old son?

Oh no. What kind of skillsets do you have? What kind of job are you looking for?

Now, it may seem silly, but check out CraigsList for job openings. I thought it was a crazy idea m'self until I got a pretty awesome excellent-paying job out of it.

Not really much of a skillset.

I've been a retail manager for a long time. I only have a GED (completed some college courses but no degree), Ive been working at Walgreens since I've been able to work, I just turned 27.

I'm very good with computers but have never worked a job computer related.

You have a strong skillset.
Inventory management
Workgroup planning and scheduling
Loss controll and shrinkage prevention
Point of sale coordination
Retail marketing and coordination including national brands

These are just a few of the tasks and skills I would expect a retail manager at a walgreens to have some level of proficiency.
Think of what you actually did daya to day and how that is valuable to another employer. Then go sell it.

This right here is pretty sound advice.

OP, Everything you did as a manager can be easily sold to another retailer - or even not a retailer at all! Check USAJOBS.gov - we have a metric effton of civi jobs locally. These normally take a bit longer to get into... but it's always worth a shot for the longrun.
