Great tips everyone, thanks, and keep them coming!

Going to hit the job fair at Keystone tomorrow (thanks Chris!) I was also a ski shop manager and tech in college, so maybe an opportunity there. Funny actually, here I am, struggling to get jobs I had in college while getting my degrees... Should have just skipped the degrees I guess! The really sad part is that these jobs seem to pay the same (or worse) than when I worked them 10 years ago!

Just an update. Have applied for over 20 jobs in the last month. Only 1 call back, which I missed, and the job filled that day. Nothing else... Looks like the old 40 has got to go.

Hello Martin, Don't sell your 40 yet. There must be something else we can do. The spirit of Woody Guthrie is holding up a pointed stick at mac d's.

Layton Truck (Colo Springs plow/truck service joint) is hiring, and I wonder if there aren't snow plow driver/seasonal winter things in Denver? Lawn/Garden joints are usually hugely backlogged with snowblower repair this time of year, if you have experience with that.

One of the big drawbacks to living in the hills is that there are very few jobs close by, and driving an hour+ each way for a $10 hr job is a wash after childcare and gas.

Thanks for the replies and encouragement.

Let me know.
