    Indeed.com is a great resource. They pull jobs from a lot of other boards. Also, do you have any friends who can recommend you to a boss for a job? Networking is still where it's at.

    Yeah, see if there's something like a "Between Jobs Ministry" available. Our Church is involved in this one....

    They actually have hiring managers attend the meetings, and interviews that take place right there on the grounds, and it's not unusual at all for hiring managers to hire somebody right there on the spot.

    And, remember - you might have to do something temporarily that you don't like in order to earn the job you really want.

    Have you considered something like driving for Uber or Lyft as a temporary job? You might even meet someone who can get you a nice job during a ride.

    I think ''Lyft'' is a US-based-only service. You probably forgot that I am from Brazil.

    There's Uber over here though, and I just got my driver's license (thank goodness for that).

    That's very funny -- I will work on a Church on the opposite side of the continent, and whose ''god'' I don't even believe in, on top of everything! If that's the closest opportunity I have, then I am definitely screwed.
