Another great place to go is the Norman Williams Agency in Sumter. Most jobs start temporary, but some lead to permanent. Rev Kelley is awesome at matching employees to jobs based on their skills and personality! A temporary job is better than no job and if it gets your foot in the door with a great company and you are good at what you do, they WILL find a way to keep you.
Another great place to go to is the OneStop office (right next door to the unemployment office). Sign up with the WIA program. They are very helpful there and you can register and check for new job postings daily at your computer at home or you can use their computers.
Also, keep checking the newspaper and the major job boards online. Even though the economy is pretty bad right now, there are still good jobs out there for people who really want to work. You just have to be persistent and keep looking and talking to people until you find it. And when you're out there looking, don't forget to put on the best thing you have.... a SMILE!
