Is ANYONE hiring??

Ok ladies, I've been applying for jobs pretty much non-stop for the last 4 months, and I've gotten 1 call back, 1 interview (one application) and one follow up email (different application) and that's it... out of about 50 job apps!

At this point I am willing to work just about anywhere, I really need something full-time to help save up money for when I move out and help pay for miscellaneous things for the wedding.

I got my BA in History and just finished my Master of Library Science, but I've worked customer service and retail for the past 10 years and have no problem going back to that if it means full time work. I love the job I have now but 20 hours a week just isn't cutting it now that I'm finished with school.

Does anyone know of any job openings? Suggestions? Ideas? TIA!

    Grapevine is hiring for a Library Assistant. Maybe it's a good "foot in the door" kinda thing?  It's PT, but it's something!

    You ladies are amazing :)

    Brianna- Those are EXACTLY the kind of jobs I'm looking for... everyone wants experience for FT library but no one hires you without experience! And it's close enough to my current job that I could still work here PT around the library schedule... definitely applying, thank you for posting that!

    My job currently has an opening for a CSR. I know it's 40 hours a week, I believe starting pay is $11 an hour. It is a title loan company and in Weatherford. If you want I can give you my email and you can email your resume to me to give to my boss :)

    <div>I'd have to relocate for that, and to pay to live on my own (FI is OOT) I'd need to make at least $15/hr. But thank you!!</div>

    Have you tried looking on each of the municipal websites in your area to see what they have available?  Most of them don't post their positions on job websites but have plenty posted on their city HR webpage.  Also, have you tried looking at HR pages for universities in the area?  I know UNT Dallas was hiring for several library positions amongs other things awhile back.  They are growing really fast so I know they have had a lot of openings.  You could also check out the websites for SMU, UTD, UTA, Collin College, TCU, TCCC, TWU, UNT Denton, etc.

    I know Fidelity Investments has many positions open right now but not sure exactly what positions are available right this moment.  Bank of American (ugh, I know, I know) is also continuously hiring and TBH, they have an amazing benefits package.  Baylor Healthcare System seems to always have several job openings for administrative office positions (pay fairly well) as well as Access Services positions (admitting type stuff).

    I know Nissan is hiring right now (in Irving/Las Colinas, right?).

    Can't think of any others ATM but if I see anything I will definitely let you know!  You may not find your ideal job for awhile but any experience is great!  Networking, even if it is volunteering through a nonprofit, is one of the best ways to improve your chances it seems like. It is so important -- even if you don't find another job for awhile, see if you can get into an organization and do some volunteer work (United Way, North Texas Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, etc etc etc)

    HTH!

    I told you, I mod the interwebz.  :)

    I live in Grapevine, and DH checks their job postings a lot.  And the Irving one I found on a Google search whim, but it looks pretty new.

    I just saw this on my fb newsfeed:

    If anyone is looking for a job in client support in the Dallas/Addison area send me a message and I'll email you the job description for the open position my company, Ristken Software Services. My best friend Merichelle worked here before I did and we both would highly recommend the company and our positions.


    Is this of any interest?? Just putting it out there :)

    My company in Irving is hiring like mad - I currently have 4 open positions out of the 23 that I manage.  The staffing agencies that I work with have warned me that the job market in DFW is booming right now.  You should check into some of those agencies - especially if you don't require benefits right now.  Most of the companies they staff for are temp-to-hire positions.

    If you go that route, I strongly recommend Billy Kent at Resource Personnel Company.  I trust him over all others.
