    Because ppl have nothing better to do in life then sit back and scam others! [​IMG] If you are seriously looking for a job go to your local unemployment office or workforce and they can give you a website to look for local jobs in your area. That's what I did and it worked great! NO SCAMS WHAT SO EVER!

    My husband just got a job on craigslist. Since he is bringing home a paycheck, I hardly think it was a scam.

    Quote:I've emailed a couple that seemed legit, not the "work from home make thousands" type BS

    One appeared to be an identity theft scam because they wanted me to send them my credit report??

    The other one just didn't seem legit at all - I googled the company and it was in Maine, but posted on the Little Rock, Arkansas craiglist as a "local company" and on the online application it said "company name withheld" if they aren't giving me their real name, why should I give them mine??

    And I'm not applying to any company that uses an online application to take personal information and solicit a 'school'

    Yeah I had the same run around for EVER! I finally just gave up the internet search put a full tank of gas in my car and literally drove around to every store in this town and put in an application! lol I was desperate! I didn't hear anything back for a while but this week I had three job interviews and got a job at our local walmart! I know its not much but in these times you take what you get and im excited to be working there and getting money so I can build the best coop my chicks could only dream of lol! Good luck and I hope you can find something cause I was there and felt that same way just last week!

    aww im sorry to hear that! it is so hard these days to find a good job and even harder keeping them! I also went to careerbuilder.com and put in my information there. I liked it because they would send me emails everytime a new job came in they thought I would like so that really helped me in my job search!
