    how do you start a life with a poor foundation?

    I'd like to say first off I know my situation isn't as bad as it could be and that I'm just looking for advice because I don't know where to turn.

    Recently my home life has taken a turn for the worse, 22 years old, sibling addicted to drugs and tore my family apart. Parents split up and I was kicked out and forced to stay with a relative for a while, now living with my father and we don't get a long. I was in college at the time but had to drop out due to this all happening. Now I'm struggling to get on my feet and support myself. I have no savings, all the money I earn off the books goes to my food and gas. I can't live with my father much longer and things don't look good. I've tried applying to over 100 local jobs in my area, gyms/shopping stores/food marts etc. Nothing is coming up. Now I'm left with no college degree and I am unable to find a job. I really need some help, How can I get a decent paying job and support myself? I really have no idea where to start or what to do, I'm nervous things are going to end up badly. I know this may sound moronic, just looking for some decent advice.

    if you're wiling to move check out North Dakota. you should have no problem finding work near the oil/natural gas drilling areas.

    Someone else actually mentioned this to me as well. If it was in my cards I would definitely be all over it. I just don't have any resources to move at this point.

    Swiper has a point, you could learn a lot from leaving NJ & heading west, its true you will have some hard times but you'll set yourself free and think about life as an independent male, and your age is the perfect time. If not now when?? Go for it, it will help shape your character and show you how strong a young man can be..

    I grew up with nothing -- about as poor as you can in this nation. You're going to have to really work hard and spend a lot of your non-work time self-teaching to develop the technical and interpersonal skills that you're going to need to get ahead. It all really comes down to your attitude. Make it positive and don't ever give up.

    Western states like Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota etc. lots of opportunity for young guys who will work. You could learn a trade skill and be making very good money in a very short time. I see lots of lazy slugs looking for a free paycheck, very few young guys who want to really work. The ones who do, can really do well.

    Gotta agree with this advice. It's to easy to join the military and get an awesome job after. I talked my friend into joining but not to follow in my dumb path. I did 6 years in the Army and I'm only useful if terrorists attack, a war breaks out, or zombies start running rampade. I talked him into using his brain and not a gun like I did. When he gets out, he will have the ability to make 6 figures in his job field and never have to fire a shot other then basic training and annual weapons qualifications.

    Jobs, jobs, jobs

    Start calling companies out West to see what they have to offer; you will be amazed. And there's Sean Hannity; he has a bunch of links listed on his web site and talks about the jobs on his radio show:

    Thanks guys, I appreciate all of the input, I did try joining the military and was declined due to partial hearing loss, the move west seems like a popular bit of information, I just don't know how I can accomplish it, I have nothing under my feet at the moment.

    You're not looking hard enough right where you are, period. If you want to find work, I guarantee there are day labor jobs, yes they suck but they are available and contractors are always looking for reliable people who can take instruction and aren't lazy.
    Ask yourself where do you want to be in 6 months?? You'll be there if you mean it. North Dakota offers opportunity that most likely isn't going anywhere for a very long time, but you can't get there with no cash.

    Have you ever lived in the north east? It's the most competitive area in the country and it's also the most expensive to live in.
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    yes, I have and it is as irrelevant as your post.

    here are 4 ads I found in less than 3 minutes ranging from 10-23 dollars an hour in New Jersey about 2500 miles from where I live, one of the 3 needs minimal experience which is easily attained. This young man just needs to believe in himself and show up to life everyday with a direction and not give up. Coddling him and and telling him BS like you are spewing out just feeds a mans insecurities and tarnishes his confidence. Build him up by encouragement, the sky isn't falling.

    And believe in yourself. It's the catalyst for change. I know it's a easy thing to say, but much harder to actually do. But start today. Believe that good things are going to happen to you. You'll start looking for opportunities instead of expecting downfalls.

    your a young fella the world is your oyster. Hang out with positive people.
