I don’t believe it when someone says “it’s hard to find a job these days because there’s none”. There are definitely if you just continue looking for it “religiously” and not just wait for someone to knock your door and say “Hey, wanna work for me?”. There’s nothing like that.
Anyway, a while ago, I chanced upon a website that has some construction employment. This reminds me of my job back abroad where majority of the employees I mingle with are from the construction. I just missed them maybe!
