Been looking for a job that I can do for a while and haven't gotten lucky

Hi!

I have not been lucky looking for a good job through indeed or OCC (a Mexican platform)

Seems that in my country there are very few jobs you can do from home besides customer service, which I will never do in my life ever again since I don't like being yelled at, and I don't like phone calls.

Are there any other places where in can look to find a job from home writing or translating texts?

My only option at the moment is going back to the family business, but I would rather be homeless than go back to working for them.

Thank you for the pointers, much love

I am a US Citizen and willing to relocate anywhere in the world, preferably places where the weather is cool but that's not a biggie
 
We have a lot of jobs in South Florida, it's just finding a cheap place to live. However l did find apartments for 900 here. I was looking for my friend who has many cats. You do need a car unless you live right in town. If you want to pm me, l can try to give you some resources here. We have no income tax. Social security and retirement distributions are not taxed by state of Florida. But summer months is pretty much 90 degrees or higher.

Thank you, but I don't have that kind of money at the moment. I am starting from the ground up with nothing, my vehicle was even repossessed because I couldn't pay it. I owe money even to the IRS
 
That's tough. No doubt. Just keep looking. My friend whose son just graduated can't find anything in California. He is a articulate intelligent and sensitive young guy, yet the economy isn't any help.

If you search online you should be able to find platforms where you can earn a little money that way, probably more in creative or journalistic writing more so than translation. A lot of people speak both Spanish and English.

That won't make you much money at first though, it takes a while to build up a bit of a reputation before you can start selling your writings regularly.

Have you ever considered doing unskilled labour, such as factory work? In those sorts of jobs you spend much more time focused on what you're doing rather than the people around you. and you get fit without paying for a gym membership. :)

To get that sort of work the best way is to dress in work appropriate clothes - jeans and solid boots - and go door knocking looking for work. If they ask "When can you start?" the correct answer is "Now if you like.".

There aren't many factories here, and the ones that are here are far.

I used to work at a feed mill making pellets for pig feed and I really liked that job because I was on night shift and a lot of the times worked alone.

I've tried writing but can't find a good platform in which to do so.

Thank you

I will keep looking

Yeah, the economy is not very good nowadays

I hope your friend finds a good job very soon

I was a tradesman, a Printer, for 20 years and loved it, then my trade started dying out. After that I found warehouse work the easiest to cope with. (unloading trucks)

Hey, that sounds amazing! And I can drive a forklift!

I'm sorry your trade died off, by the way, but I'm glad you've found something.

I hope I find something myself
 
My daughter (who was "lucky" enough to receive a genetic gift from me) works from home, writes product reviews for well-known publisher, makes $75,000 per year, and gets about $200 worth of free samples of everything from dog treats (my dogs said "thumbs up!") to small appliances.

I have no idea how she fell into that plush job. I'll ask, and try to remember to get back with the info.

(I never made $75,000 in a single year! Kid these days!)

Thank you for that

I appreciate it

For your safety if you come to the states I would stay clear of Florida@ the moment . There is a lot of fascist movements and legislation being pushed there.I know there are plenty of good people in Florida . But I would search for a state more excepting.

Have you ever thought of getting a CDL ? There are work programs here that will train you . Only problem is the trucking industry is a mess now , pay is low hours are long and most people absolutely hate trucks here, they don’t want us to be on the road , But love having everything in the stores and @ their door steps delivered to them . It’s a very odd contradiction.Most have no concept about how commodities arrive to them. But is a steady job to get started here. And you could see the whole country if you do OTR, or can stay local and be home everyday.
Sorry for the rant.

No problem!

I did consider to move to trucking when I was in Utah but I don't think I'm that good at backing up with a huge truck. I looked into getting a CDL but they're kinda very expensive (the ones I saw)

Thank you

Europe would be nice, I agree

Or Canada

Was there for 4 months when I was in college and loved it so much!

Welcome just takes practice. It’s hard to learn but once you learn you never forget , Goodluck as well. The company I work for will train you for free. But you have to work for them for 2 years . Which is kind of sucks

I will definitely look into this, any days off tho? Vacations? I would like to visit my kids every time I can

Do the trucks need a stick? I kinda know how to drive a stick vehicle but am iffy (I don't really have that good coordination with my feet and hands, can barely walk and chew bubble gum at the same time lol)
 
Yes Florida sucks, however we have fifty million retirement homes that are looking for employees, and pay is above minimum wage with bennies. And you can rent near beach in some areas. That makes up for all the white supremacists that have swamp water for brains here. I am frightened of alligators, hurricanes here.
 
I would rather live on Antarctica than Florida. My friend was there in winter and wore short sleeves. So, what its like in summee then?

They will train you to drive stick . But they have automatics as well . I only drive stick , can’t stand the automatic 18 wheelers . I with me in control of the gears I feel more in control especially driving in the winter, And down huge hills .

Yeah you get vacation
