    Go to trucking school, get your CDL, and become a trucker. Perfect loner's job. And you'll get to explore the world as a bonus.

    This also has the fringe benefit of killing truck stop hookers.

    See? What's not to love? Trucking is a seriously underrated profession that clearly pays well.

    Tried that. Business failed. Evil ESTP partner and clients still had to be interacted with anyway.

    I'm looking for a job again also. It's been 2 months, but it took me 6 months to find a job after college. For the record, I turned down a job offer already, but the idea of working there made my stomach churn, even if I really need the money.

    The valuing of people skills and schmoozing over other skills really bugs me also. Everyone I know who is very outgoing and gets jobs easily are otherwise unreliable and unskilled. I find the more quiet, reserved people do much of the work, but often get little credit. People don't have long term vision when hiring; they just go with who they "like".

    Yep, same boat here.

    Part-time work isn't really to come by - hell, 7 weeks ago I was rejected for a PT coffee shop gig and she ended up hiring one of the 6 others who applied for it!

    And there isn't even temp work, which is a bad sign as far as jobs/economy goes.

    What can you do. I maybe find one job I can apply for a week, and I have started assuming I won't hear back for the jobs I'm qualified for, simply because there are huge numbers of other people, just like me, who are also looking for the same sorts of jobs.

    I make money online. Also make passive income online (getting paid for not working). I had to work to create the passive income, but then it keeps going without any further work. Now I work to create higher levels of passive income for me. I love it. I like it way better than working in a job. Making money from home is a reality.

    Check out these links:

    Ways to Make Money Online

    The 4 Hour Work Week

    You can work on your online business in your spare time.
    Then once you have your online income at a high enough level, you can kiss your job goodbye and say hello to freedom.
    That's what I did.
    It may be difficult at first, but it's well worth persisting until you succeed,
    because then you're free from all the hassles of the job market forever.

    I'm part of the 1% who actually quit their jobs this year. If I didn't quit I think I would of ended up breaking my leg/knee, then I'd be further fked up the ass.

    I hear a lot of Americans used to play online poker and make a reasonable living, not because they were good at it, but because everyone else sucks and so they could pull $35k+ a year.

    I'm good at what I do, but it also helps that most of the people in my field suck at it. They're not very skilled and not highly motivated. George Carlin said that in every field, most of the people suck and there are just a small number who are good/great. That's pretty true. Brian tracy said that the 80/20 rule applies here also: 80% of salesmen make 20% of the commissions, and 20% of salesmen make 80% of the commissions. In my field it's probably more like a 99/1 ratio.

    I got a lot of helpful advice from success gurus like Brian Tracy, Harv Eker, Napoleon Hill, Brad Yates, Dan Kennedy, etc. If you don't know how to do well in your life, these guys will set you straight.
