I am thinking of telling my son really soon that starting the first of the month it will be a rule that he leaves the house say 3 or 4 days a week for job hunting. I would like to put a time frame on it.
Any advice to what would be a fair time or reasonable time to expect him to job hunt. Keep in mind he doesn't drive so if he plans on going to places other than in the neighborhood he will have bus time.
I think he needs to have plans on where he is going to go and make the most of it but applying for jobs that are in the same area. Not that all the jobs applied for should be bunched together but it would make sense if there are several business close to try for them all.
I really do think my son has the end goal of April 15th on his mind and thinks he has time. I would agree with this thinking if he was hunting and had a positive attitude that something will come up in his search.
However, I don't think he is searching. He is being plain lazy and is stuck in the mindset of me me me. He bitches when we ask him to carry groceries in and not taking the time to think that Mom doesn't really want to go shopping for the food.
Or when we ask him to empty the dishwasher he only does the dishes and leaves the pots and pans on the counter and the silverware in the washer. He says he didn't have time but they were in there all day.
These little things that he does and only does an half ass job and bitching is what is going to make it hard for him to get a job and keep a job. It makes me very sad to think about the future he will have if he doesn't learn what it takes to be a good employee.
My husband said isn't this idea what I tried to do and caught hell for.. I guess it's close to being the same but he has the bus pass and he will be getting notice and I figure we will set certain days so it's not a surprise to just get up and get the hell out.
Any advice on times and days would be appreciated. Or anything else anyone might suggest that we do to jump start his job searching.
