Not much in Wilmington. Nothing that pays over minimum wage, at least.

I was a personal assistant, that's like a level up from being a prostitute. It certainly isn't recession proof.

Whatcha got? Hubby's looking for a job since landscaping's slowed for the season. We're in Savannah, about 1 hour from Charleston.
An hour? Good Lord, how fast do you drive? I'm a bit of a lead foot and can never make it in much less than 2 hours.

I've considered changing jobs, but yeah, it's brutal out there.

As an aside, how long before someone starts a spoof of this thread by removing the word "off" from the title? :sosp:

grad school here i come

that's my backup plan. If I don't land something soon, I'd rather put myself in debt for a masters degree than waste my time on meaningless part time jobs for the foreseeable future.

I have a job still but it's on shakey ground....had a phone interview with the VP of sales yesterday with a company and he wants to me along the process and now it seems the company my old man works for may want me to come aboard as well if I find myself a free agent. Both would be better than where I am now....I see companies looking at consolidating resources and people and thats the business I'm in. Of course they have to spend money to save money but only the smart ones do that...

I sure hope I keep my job. Things are looking pretty bad right now, so if the worst happens, I might have to go back into the Navy. And I am not sure they take 45 year olds now. :)
