Dear Government Officials,

I have an excellent abundance of senior level marketing experience and simply cannot locate work. At 51, I have been out of work since 2007, and have sent out over 900 résumés since. To no avail, I cannot obtain work and have been on a limited amount of interviews. My résumé is fine with the exception of not finishing college, and the clearly noticed age of 51, based on the dates of employment.

I am extremely qualified to lead teams and mentor subordinates and capable of managing large budgets.

I have been forced out of my apartment, cannot afford anything and have recently moved in with family as a complete burden.

This is not how I intended to live, have no idea where to turn for help and am completely desperate. Once a successful businessperson who achieved high levels of recognition for his performance, I am now at wits end and need an opportunity to devote myself to a company and reap the benefits of my hard work.

Please advise me what I am eligible for, or if there are any opportunities for me in government. I am extremely adept at marketing and advertising, IT and process-driven occupations.

Sincerely,

David

ABOUT ME

Hello, I am new here and do not know where to start, but I will start by saying that I am a single mother of four kids in which I am not recieving help for. Next I am a laid off home healthcare aid, the company I worked for closed down without notice, and as I have been looking for new work and recieving unemployment benefits, my time has run out and I am still unemployed. The city that I live in is slowly staring to offer work but most of the work is minimum wage and hardly enough to support three teenagers ages 17,16,15 and a 10 year old,plus myself. I am currently seeking help from wherever I can get it. I am attending school online now while I have all this extra time on my hands in hope of pursueing my dream of opening a women and childrens shelter here where I live. There is more that I will share at a later time.

Fighting everyday to keep my sanity and from living on the streets.

I am 35 years old and just want to work. I have never ever done this before. I have pride and I am living with my father who is kicking me out. I have applied for jobs and no answers. My resume is good. I work hard. I just want a chance. I am on the verge of being homeless by april. I was there before. I don't do drugs and I am a positive buddhist. I write music and poetry to help me continue to live. My health is affecting me because of what I have been through prison when I was in my teens. I have lived a positive life for a while and the resumes go answered. I am in school which I don't know how am I getting through. I refuse to do wrong except pray, meditate and make people laugh and smile. It is my kung fu fighting spirit. I am a single father and don't want my son see me as a failure. I feel like will smith in the pursuit of happiness. I have so many bills that I beg the storage people not to sell my furniture or my writings. I would love to work and have my own home someday. Then I can help others. I write cards or personal poems for people for donations so my thing is not pan handling for making people laugh or feel good with my words since I am a musician and writer. I owe my former land lady $2000 grand when I lost my job and moved out but still owed 2 months rent. I put my car as collateral for a loan a year ago to save me from eviction it didn't work because I never found a job in time thus eviction. Now I pay $150 a month and would have to pay a thousand to get my title back. This is so embarrassing that i am saying all of this. Bad things happen to good people. I want a job any job. I will write a card for donations 5 per poem/ card what ever for a wife or husband, fighting or getting back together, anniversary. I can write anything you name it. The universe is still beautiful. Thank you!

I'm sorry...

Hi,
My name is Kleigh and I'm a 22 year old unemployed female. I am in desperate need of help with paying my rent and utilities for the month of January. The total comes to $600. I know that is pretty low compared to the other heart breaking stories on here, and it hurt more to know that there are others sharing my pain and feeling worse than I am.
I am single, living with two roommates. One is moving out, come New Years, and the other was in a horrible attack by a sexual offender. I was forced to give my two weeks at my job because I could not meet their company availability, and now I have no income now to speak of. I am trying my hardest to find another job, losing the one I had was a horrible experience and I wish that their policy had not changed. I have spoken to Unemployment about a week and a half ago but there is no word on if I have been approved or not, and or when/if I will receive any assistance.
If there is anyone out there willing to help me keep my home and my family (Tara is 2 and Gabrielle is 1) together, I would greatly appreciate it.
If you can not, please pray for us? I'm sorry to be of any inconvenience.

Family of 4

Me and my husband spent the day trying to get help for our family.We did make alittle progress,but it will not take place until Jan. or Feb.,which will lower our rent some.We did get a hold of Toys for Tots to see if they could help get the kids some Christmas this year. They may be able to help our 5 year old,but they will not get our 13 year old daughter anything because of her age. I feel alittle bit more relieved knowing our 5 year old might get something under the tree. They have not started getting names for Toys for Tots yet here,but I plan to keep checking on that so I can have him put on the list as soon as possible.We still have our 13 year daughter to worry about though. She could use warmer shirts and a heavy jacket. She could also use jeans size 1. She is all girl and likes girly things like the fake nail kits,make-up,music cds,hair feathers. She is an avid reader and loves books. If anybody has any used clothes they have outgrown and can donate to us, that would help us out alot. Unfortunately, almost everything we own got left in Ga. and there is no way to get them at this time due to our financial state.So we are having to more or less start over. Anything would be deeply appreciated. God Bless all of ya who are trying to help!

Need help, but least likely to get any.

Hi everybody, I never thought I would be in the situation that I am in now. I am an unemployed dental hygienist living in central Massachusetts. I lost my job over 2 years ago now, and I can't get a job anywhere. Dental offices here are not hiring right now, and there are many dental hygienists out of work. I thought I was in a safe field, but I now understand the first thing a person loses when they lose their job is dental insurance, and others tighten their spending. They don't hire a male my age when they don't have to, younger women will keep patients coming back better. Lower paying jobs will not hire me, because I am over qualified. My wife walk out in the beginning of May when my federal unemployment ran out, and left me with a house and 2 dogs. I had to file Chapter 7 today, 11/5/2011 as my house was due to be auctioned on Tuesday, 11/8, this buys me a little more time only. I am an online student at Vermont Tech. I need some kind of help; I can't live in my car, because I have too many health problems. My license to practice is only good in MA, So, I will need to get licensed for any other. If there is anybody who can help me in any way, I would be most grateful. John

i am a desperate single mother in need of help from any kind soul out there who will listen

hi- so im a desperate single mother who considers taking my life recently due to the current situation i find myself in. i don't dare tell anybody b/c it's always a moment that passes quickly after i think about my 2 month old daughter and how she would fare without me. im unemployed i was fired 2 weeks before my due date my employer stated that i was rude not to tell her what my childcare would be after having my baby and that i was worng not to tell her i was pregnant when i interviewd. she of course lied to unemployment and they took her word over mine. so i've been unemplyed since june and live in nj the worst state if you want to actually receive your unemployment benefits. so ive had no income since june i am now broke have no money was supposed to be able to get my benefits today but when i call UE i cannot get through and i try to file online and it tells me to call in. I have -$124 in my bank account and $60 to my name in cash. I desperately need $450 thats it to pay my rent this month but i have no family or friends here and my babys father won't even speak to me. I won't get into a long rant about Governor Chrisitie and how i feel about him but were i to meet him i would ask if he felt my life were worth $450, b/c him and his office doing all they can to keep money we earned out of our pockets are pushing me closer and closer to that end. I don't care that i cannot afford to eat i don't care that i can't afford to go anywhere i just want ot be able to pay my rent and have an income til i can find a job. I worked damn hard for the money in my unemployment why are they doing all they can to keep me from having it?!? Please if there is anyone out there reading this that can lend me money just to get through this month til (hopefully i can get my unemployemtn resolved) you would be saving my life literally i cannot stand the stress any longer it's worn me down completely i have nothing left to hold onto please i beg anyone to help me out. I can honestly say if i had the $ and someone said this to me i would give it in a heartbeat so i beg and humbly ask anyone out there to help me
