How do you transition from one type of work to another, when you really don't have time to learn the new one through a volunteer job? You know companies these days. They want "X yrs experience". :-(

You don't. Companies don't want transferrable skills. They want someone who has actually done the job. Hence, the "X yrs experience" requirement.

It also eliminates all those SAHMs, whose kid just entered 1st grade.

Tell that to the EDD office folks. They have the opposing opinion. :-/

(And what's "SAHM"?)

SAHM - Stay at home Moms. Often women who want to re-enter the work force because little Joey is now in 1st grade.

EDD still recommends 32 lb. resume paper with matching envelopes.

What does the name Bluetea refer to? Is that a drink down at Earl's? How is Earl these days?

So what's a person do then? There has to be SOME way to make a living, without starting one's own business. (Which I'd be a fish outa water with.) I'm not a sales person, nor the management type. (Which everyone seems to want these days. :-( )

I believe this time of day Blue is taking her afternoon nap. Picture a 66 year old woman sitting on the couch, head back, mouth opened, snoring. Doesn't get any prettier.

Although in some cases, the M in SAHM could be for MILF ;)
