    Default Need help Im broke

    I moved to new York from the UK at the start of the summer and haven't been able to find any work. The cost of living has almost wiped me out, I don't have enough of the next months rent. I did come over with a substantial amount (inheretance, it breaks my heart it's almost all gone) but being in a new place means you don't always know the cheapest way of doing things. I have been trying to stay calm and positive, and it has been working but I am starting to really panic now. I am a bartender and there is nothing around. I'm not asking to be rich I just want enough money to eat and have a roof over my head. Does anyone have any advice? In the UK there is the doll, and there are temping agencies that always have work. And if you're wondering how they let me in to begin with Im dual.

    Sounds like my life in college. Can't borrow any money from friends or family?
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    There are no bars in New York?

    There are temp agencies here too. You could probably get a waiter/waitress/host job with your experience until something else comes up.

    Well I've probably been to every bar in the city. There are no jobs I meant to say. Where and how do I go about temping agencies? I've tried finding out but have yet to come up with anything useful.

    Haven't told family I'm so fudged. But the only realistic help they could offer would be moving back... Not something I want to do.

    The U.S. is in serious economic recession, consider selling weed.

    At the expense of someone in my family. But then what I've spent 4 months away looking for a job while I burnt my way through a round the world trip worth of money. I go back to nothing, this move was supposed to be my launching pad and I've taken five stepsback. I keep telling myself something will give... There must be something...

    Just throwing out ideas...

    • Talk/network with other bartenders
    • Get feedback from them: maybe your strategy, approach, or presentation is wrong and that's why you're not getting hired
    • Look in yellow page phone book for "temp agency"
    • Head out to the suburbs if the hunting in the city is no good
    • Try applying at some chain restaurants: Olive Garden, Max & Erma's, Applebees
    • Just get any job you can to get some income
    • Hospitals and universities seem to always need some kind of help
    • See if there's a friend who will let you stay for a month for low or no rent

    Well, so long as you aren't going to end up on the streets. This is happening to a lot of people, it happened to me last year in California.
