Hey everyone, I'm 19 and kind of in a rough spot. I currently live at home with my mom, and have a part time job at a local college in the networking department working 19.5 hours (thats the limit =( ) at $10 an hour.
My mother recently lost her job, and I am sick of relying on her for everything. Today the transmission in my car kicked the bucket, and I am not really in a position to fix something that costly right now.
I want to take burdens off of my mother, and I have a year experience in networking and 3 more years on that working and training in IT. I also have my slew of certifications, and am about to take my CCNA Voice exam next week (if I find a ride...). I know I have to be worth something out there to someone. I have been applying to jobs on craigslist, monster, dice, and others. I have gotten jack squat.
My current job caps me at 19.5 hours a week, so I can't squeeze anything more than that from my $10 an hour. I'm underpaid, underworked, and need money. My college is not offering me anything...
I live north of Houston in Texas. Does anyone have any advice for me as to grabbing a job? Tomorrow im going to drop by a local oil company I applied as desktop support for on craigslist in person and see if I can drop of a written resume and let them know I am really interested. Other than that, most job offerings on craigslist are very vague. I can't find a small business around here to help with voice stuff, which I am really interested in, and I am to inexperianced to get anyone to pay attention to my existance.
Here is my resume: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=1PJ69SXT
Don't worry, its not a virus.
Please tear it to shreds. I need help. If anyone can give me some advice, I would appreciate it. I just want to be on my own to remove the burdan from my mom.
