Point of Personal Privlige III: Ain't Too Proud to Beg

As many of my close friends and family know, I've been searching for work for a while now. I'm currently employed, but I barely get enough hours to even just pay my monthly expenses, and certainly not enough to save or anything fancy like that. I'm going back to school in the fall, and I find that I work best when I'm busy. Having a full time job or two part-time jobs would help keep me busy while having enough time to commit to academics.

I've applied to several dozen jobs (possibly over a hundred, though I honestly have lost count) over the past few months, and I've only had one interview. At that one interview, I was told I was one of ten candidates being considered for the position. Over 450 people submitted an application for what would be an entry level, $10 an hour wage full time position. I can only imagine similar circumstances surrounded the other employers I put an application into. And with hundreds of applicants, I doubt all of them even get read.

So, to my readers, if you know anyone who is hiring, please e-mail me at And if YOU'RE hiring (even if it's just an odd job rather than consistent employment), I have a resumé to send and plenty of time for an interview. I'm a lifelong resident of Indianapolis, have reliable transportation, attended college for a while, and have been employed consistently since my freshman year of high school. I'm very proficient with technology and am a quick study.

The only real limitation I have is that I'm not fit for heavy physical labor. I can lift a heavy package or two, but I can't consistently lift heavy packages/bags/boxes/whatever above 50 pounds.

So yeah, if you've got a job for me (have I mentioned I make house calls for computer issues???) or know someone who might be hiring, e-mail me at, or drop me a line via Facebook or Twitter. And if you don't know anyone who is hiring, post this blog entry on your Facebook, Twitter, or other social media.

Anyway you can help is greatly appreciated.

  1. Matt...hang in there. I emailed you some openings. Email me your phone number. I might be able to come with some $10/hr odd jobs.
