    Looks like my wife is losing her job of 27 years over a minor nothing. Starbucks store shift supervisor. Which was 60% of our income and both of our health coverages. She’s so lost at sea shes worked there for so long and never thought this would happen and has no idea what to do now. She does have a bachelors degree in biology. Anyone have any job openings connections or ideas. Close to
    Laguna beach unfortunately we can’t relocate elder family members depend on us.

    REALLY sorry to read:(
    Doesn't pay good, and no bennies, but substitute teaching? Especially with the bio degree.
    @herzalot might have more insight, but I bet she could pick up a CTE hospitality credential pretty easily: https://www.ctc.ca.gov/credentials/leaflets/designated-subjects-(cl-888)
    And there are a few education jobs out there (GG example: https://www.edjoin.org/Home/DistrictJobPosting/1601221 )
    Plus the bio degree should be able to get her an emergency credential to teach bio/life sciences: https://www.edjoin.org/Home/Jobs?ke...regions=30&jobTypes=0&days=0&onlineApps=false

    SO SORRY to read, just sucks.

    Check the careers page at www.LSA.net for positions in biology out of the Irvine Office. She may have to start at the bottom, but the health benefits are good, and maybe the pay not so bad..? If she’s interested, PM me for a referral.

    This is good advice. Although school is out right now, so subbing would have to be summer school. No benefits though.

    My wife is a teacher, and subs were hard to come by, so the district raised the sub rate to $225 A DAY, and people came out of the woodwork. It would be good to get signed up and you could potentially get a long term job when school starts.

    Clovis Office has openings for Senior Biologist and Senior Planner. SLO has opening for Senior Water Quality Specialist/Planner. Nothing entry-level apparently.

    @sir crashalot Irvine has opening for Senior Water Quality Specialist/Planner and Transportation Planner. Consider having your wife apply as a proposal coordinator for southern California. Our marketing staff do not have any specialist/technical knowledge of what we do, so she can learn a few tidbits and immediately separate herself from the rest of the staff. Alternatively, she can submit a resume in the Unsolicited Resumes tab and see what turns up.

    Whew, she did not get fired. She (or I) still might look for a new job in the near future but for now we can breathe. @DangerDirtyD thank you for the suggestion, might look into that.

    Is she gonna be on YouTube soon putting a half-skim-oat milk-3/4 pump caramel-iced hot latte toting Karen in her place?

    If she applies at LSA, have her put my name as a referral. Heads up, not everyone at work knows me as DangerDirtyD. PM me for details if needed.

    That's great news! Now's the time for her to start looking. There are no jobs when you need them but plenty when you're not looking.

    Yeah, dust off the degree and think about getting any credentialing needed. Best to have it on hand and ready to go!

    Sorry about your wife's job. It does remind me of something I learned in 1980; It is a recession when your neighbour looses their job, it is a depression when you loose your job, and it is a recovery when the old man looses his job just like he lost his balance.

    BTW It's a crash when you forget to take your foot off the pedal.

    Home Depot and Lower are hiring associates. They told me when I was on hold for 10 minutes each

    Ha! I don't know if any of you remember Tink from STR. I went into Crank Bros and asked to speak with her. They didn't know who the hell I was talking about - and I realized - I didn't know her real name. I gave a physical description and said she works in distribution or something like that. :facepalm:

    It's Jady, BTW.

    In the future, you might consider checking into Cox Communications. They are always hiring, have a difficult time finding good staff, and are always looking for people with retail and customer experience. Also, there are a lot of different aspects to their business - you can work in a retail store in sales or customer support, can do business sales (which requires you to travel to clients) or you can even do call center tech or account support - in many cases from your own home.

    For all I know maybe you get a discount on your cable bill :)

    Good luck!
