Welcome to my website "The Out Of Work Bum!" I'm erik, the out of work bum, and I appreciate you taking the time to read what I have to say.
I am currently: jobless, homeless, pennilesss and blind. Family and friends give me places to sleep and food to eat, pay my meagre bills, store the remnants of my past successful life, pay my travel and other insidentals, and tell me that this is all alright because one day things will work out for me. I am looking for work full time, but it costs money to put resumes out and fill in online applications, travel to job interviews, and so on, none of which I currently pay for myself.
All of this makes me feel like a pretty worthless human being, and yet nothing could be further from the truth. I'm college educated and trade certified. I started a consulting business from nothing and operated for four successful years. I've traveled independently in three countries. I've worked nationally and internationally doing training for professionals. I speak and write well. I conduct thorough and thoughtful research. I resinate with people and I'm committed to helping others. I'm hard-working, loyal, and integral. There's no reason why I shouldn't be working.
Well, I put myself to work once. I can do so again, and here it is, the out of work bum website. In this website, I offer to take care of a lot of things that might need doing for nominal fees. You get high quality, necessary, affordible freelance work and I get money that I can use to upgrade my skills, travel to job interviews, clear my modest credit card debt, and generally take care of business until I can find work. Thus, the out of work bum website represents not a tribute to indigence, but a tribute to dignity in the face of unrelenting joblessness and a sincere effort to raise expectations and contribute valuable skills.
