It's difficult to find full-time jobs near me, but it isn't impossible. The trick is to find them in the right places. I live in a rural area, so most small towns and cities aren't in great shape. Small towns usually have a higher rate of violent crime and residential violence, which is not a good place to be at any time of day. So what kind of jobs are available and how to find them?
You won't find many full-time jobs near me, because most small towns lack the workforce to support a city of any size. In many cases, it takes several years before a town builds up enough residents to support a city of any size. That means there aren't enough full-time, part-time, seasonal, and contract work opportunities for folks like me. But, even if there were, finding them wouldn't be easy.
Let's take a look at some of the options for full-time or part-time jobs near me. The first types of jobs would be seasonal or very seasonal. These include things like riding school buses for parataxis, delivering goods at county fairs, or cleaning homes and businesses on a daily basis. Not exactly “full time” job opportunities, but certainly work for an afternoon or two.
The second type of jobs would include contract jobs, which include things like warehouse jobs, retail sales, fast food drive-through, and delivery jobs. All three of these types of jobs are generally only for people under the age of 18 and require a valid ID. I can't tell you what kind of warehouse jobs, retail sales, or fast food drive-through jobs might be out there, but I've probably seen quite a few in my travels. It would be a good idea for a parent to start tutoring young children about the availability of seasonal or contract jobs, since this is a growing and underutilized resource.
The final category of jobs hiring near me would be those that are, as the name implies, full-time. The range of full-time jobs hiring near me might include something as simple as cashier work at a store, to driving a truck, or helping home care and group therapy groups with their patients. Some of these jobs pay reasonably well and offer flexible hours, while others are more suited to people who are still in high school.
There are many jobs in all of these categories available in the market place near me. Many people are searching for a temporary, or even a permanent, change of pace. While a temporary change of pace offers immediate satisfaction, a permanent change of pace may offer more security. Amazon is one company that is well-known for offering part-time work, while many people search for warehouse jobs, delivery service jobs, or other positions that offer stability and security.
