Title: Everything is crumbling apart...
Post by: Bastmuttepta on June 07, 2017, 01:59:19 am
Em hotep, all.

For those who aren't aware, my wife Kalie and I have been going through a rough time recently. My anxiety/depression has spiraled out of control. I was backed into a corner in April and forced to either 1) go out on short term disability again or 2) quit my job, and- in an effort to not just delay the inevitable, I quit. I have since been putting hundreds of applications in and have not heard back positively for any of them. I have not had a single interview, despite having my bachelors degree and nearly 7 years worth of experience.

We have enough money (from my 401k) to last until mid-september. If we do not find jobs paying a total of $2200 per month after tax before then (that's rent, bills, and food, we cannot cut down any more than that presently), we will be in serious trouble. Any prayers or positive energy towards my wife and I finding good jobs before we run out of funds would be greatly appreciated.

Senebty,

Tepta

I will keep you in my prayers. Finances and finding jobs can be so stressful. I also pray that Netjer will help you manage your anxiety and depression.

Prayers for you and your wife, Tepta. Job hunting is absolutely ridiculous--I, too, have a BA and several years' worth of experience, and it's very rare to even hear back from a prospective employer these days. :( I'm sure you're probably already doing this, but one thing I've found really helps is to contact them about a week or so after you've submitted your application, under the guise of making sure they received it. It puts you on their radar as someone who cares enough about the job to reach out (again), even after you've sent the application off to them and it's theoretically on their shoulders. It says "Hey, I care enough to have a stake in this, too, so please pay attention to me, because I'm not just another applicant, another name and resume: I'm skilled, and worth your time."

May Whomever you turn to for strength give it in heaping measure. May Wepwawet open the way. May Heru-Wer grant you both courage and financial solutions soon.

Senebty,
Gezausenu.

Prayers!

I perform a community service for the House and if you need divination or magical services, we can get something arranged.

I'm so sorry you're going through this, friend. So many people are having this problem these days, and I hate it. Entry-level jobs are like impossible to come by, and even my more well-off friends are working terrible hours and with really damaging work conditions.

I have Problems with the state of the world right now. There is no one that deserves this.

May Wepwawet open the way for you and your wife. I hope you find jobs that meet your needs soon. As said by my twin, may Heru-Wer give you courage, and bring financial stability. Since it's Reunion month, you could potentially reach out to Heru-Wer and Hethert together; I've experienced a "Lady of Prosperity" sort of Hethert before. <3

Prayers. That is incredibly hard and really speaks to the current economy crisis that even a degree from college doesn't help prospects.

I am sorry to hear that, I have been going through something similar myself. I will say my piece for you, I hope that it helps. I hope you find what you are looking for.

Hotep Tepta,

I'm so sorry to hear of your troubles.  I know what it's like to look for work and not have anyone offer you even an interview.   I know you mentioned you ended up leaving your job for now.  I will continue to keep you and yours in my prayers.

For the near future ..have you considered possibly doing a contract or temp job for a little while until you figure out what you want / like to do?

Just thinking outside the box ..but have you tried your local temporary work agencies like Manpower, Kellygirl, Robert Half Legal, Robert Half Account Temps?  I ask as I was in your situation back in 2013.   I took a temporary contract with one of the local temp agencies that was contracting to the State.  That job got my foot in the door and I was able to network with others and eventually able to get on full time permanent a year and a half ago ...  if you have not thought of that option ..it's something ..at least you would get a paycheck every week (most pay weekly).

Its just a thought ..I have a lot of those ..as I have gotten older myself. I'm 57 now and if I lost my job with the State no one would hire me as I'm an official senior citizen now (even if I don't think so).

Please let me know if I can be of any help in that regard and I'm happy to help you navigate some of them to start with the application process.

Prayers coming your way.

Meres
