Sure thing. I'm not all that familiar with how adding people on Skype works, but if it's by name then look for live:realizeeternity. Since my account was transferred from MSN, I never really bothered to look into this stuff.

Fine with me. Might I add you once I get back from work?

I don't have a choice since MSN Messenger is officially dead. I only use it for IM'ing, though. I don't make or receive calls or video chats with it.

...I see that you have skype on you... but do you use it??

Hmm, I believe that my brother has made that same mistake as well. He didn't stop his education once he got out of high school, & as a result, he also had a pretty hard time finding work after he finished. He had to take up quite a few temporary positions before he was finally able to find a more permanent position.
So yeah, men do have the same problems finding work as women...

Because I didn't consider working. I should have gotten a job after graduating highschool and taken a break from academics for a while before going to college. But, I didn't. Biggest mistake. /sadface

Yeah, unless you're looking to be a dancer at a brothel, the size of your boobs doesn't matter even the slightest.
& now that you've mentioned it, they do happen to hire more teen than adults as well, so you're not the only one who thinks like that. But... since you're 22, why haven't you gotten employed in your teens??

You'd think that have mounds on your chest would help you get a job. Apparently, that is not the case when looking for a job anywhere but places that specialize in such things. But, in all fairness, men seem to be having the same trouble in the job market as us. One thing I have noticed, though, is that employers seem to pick up teenagers more often than adults. Like, teens still in highschool and such. Something about not expecting them to have any experience in the working field. Meh. If it weren't for the fact that I grew up knowing that life wasn't fair.. well, I'd probably be doing something I regret.

Yeah, the so-called, "American Dream" is little more than a myth nowadays...
Also, being a girl doesn't help you in the slightest when it comes to finding work, does it?

Gotta love the 'ol red, white, and blue, amirite?

Wow, this is just sad. Everyone's wondering why the unemployment rates are so damn high, when the real reason is that all the employers are so damn picky.
That, & the fact that a lot of companies are transferring jobs over to foreign countries, as they'd rather have something that's as close to slave labor that they can get, without it actually being slave labor.

Does this, "submit applications & pray" method apply to even those fast food joints??
July 2nd, 2013 4:47 PMSyltti
It's all about this economy. Those of us with no work experience are basically "unneeded". All we can do is submit applications and pray.

Nice analogy there, Syltti. & now that you've mentioned it, I do believe that most employers are pretty damn picky with all of their applicants. It's all about choosing the right person for the job.
However, one thing that I don't get is that they all are looking for experienced workers. I mean really, how the hell can someone find a job, when all the employers require experience in the workforce prior?!
