Hello everyone, thanks so much for taking the time to hear my case.
I’m 24 and live around 15 minutes from the Brisbane CBD. I’ve been working full time for the past 4 years and I’ve been in the job market for 8 years. However, in my last role I was employed full time for just over 6 months before being made redundant.
In the past I had not had any issues finding employment, but now I am really struggling. I’ve had my resume looked over and I customise my cover letter for just about every role I apply for.
When I realised after a month of not getting any interviews I started branching out to jobs that were further away, casual, full time, part time, contract, whatever I could find. I’m sending out upwards of 150 job applications out every week. Nearly all of these jobs I am strongly qualified for.
Since my redundancy, I have had two interviews – TWO!
I had to extend my financial hardship on my car loan for another 3 months which lets up in May and they will not extend again. I have $4 to my name and roughly $200 of bills every month (not including rent) that need to be paid – mostly pet, car and family insurances.
I owe my partner about $2000 in rent. Centrelink won’t give me a dime, and that’s fine. I tried asking for a healthcare card so I could at least continue to study and afford my medication and they laughed me out the door.
I have never felt more desperate in my entire life, and I feel dirty even putting myself out on the internet to others to ask for help, but even a little goes a long way.
I have constant mental breakdowns and cry over the fact that I don’t think I’ll ever be able to dig myself out of this financial hole :(
My paypal is PayPal.Me/olithela
Please don’t be offput by me not including my real name in my paypal link, it is my online alias. You can find me on twitch and youtube (which I’ve been doing to make myself feel at least a bit productive) if you would like to confirm I am a real person, but I am not here to plug that. I need legitimate help and I appreciate any and all support I may be able to get more than you may ever know or understand.
