I recently moved back to my hometown of Albany, Oregon and was looking for a job. The area is pretty small and I have been on the hunt for employment for a while. A lot of the job postings I see require me to be a minimum level of English. I have been able to get the job I am looking for without having to do much extra. I do believe that the job I have is very well-paying.
I know that there are a lot of “minimum English” jobs out there, but there are also a lot of jobs that are payed by the hour or by the day.
In the local paper this morning, a woman writes “I need a job that pays well, so I can come back to my hometown and be able to support my family. I went to all the interviews and none of them could find anything for me. I am desperate and am willing to do anything to find a job.” That’s not just desperation. It’s not uncommon for people to look for jobs outside their “home” area.
This is how I read these jobs.
Thats not just the way I read them. Its a common way that people look for jobs. I do this all the time too. Every time I go out to get a new job, I try to go to one of the largest cities in the country. I want to be near a big company, and I want it to pay well. It’s not just that I’m looking for a job right now.
This is something I always do when I look for a job: I go to the website of a company that is hiring then I look at the jobs listed for that company. I also do a quick search to see if the job I want is currently open. I don’t want to be jobless. I hate that feeling.
I can’t do this, but I can help you if you really want to. If you want to use your brain to search for jobs you want to hire, then this is a good place to start. If the job you have is not open, then there are some jobs within the city that you can contact for any of your other jobs.
This is a good place to start. First, go to www.jobsinalbany.com. Look for the jobs section. Click on the jobs you want to look at. A drop down box will appear. Click on the “My Jobs” link. You can then find the job you are looking for and then scroll down and do a search on the company you want to work for.
The first job I found was a police officer. This city has a really high crime rate. So I called the department, got a number, and called it to see if there was any open jobs in the city. They said there were a few openings in the city, but no one was hiring. There were a couple other places that I could use, but it didn’t make any difference.
When I called the police department I was not expecting to get any results. I just wanted to see if there were any open jobs. I was only able to find one other job in the city that was a cop. So my search was not a waste of time.
