American Girl in Desperate Need of a Job
Posted July 16th, 2013 - 2:40 am by from Erzurum, Turkey (Permalink)
Hey! I'm Maggie. I've been travelling the middle east & Europe for the past year. I got fired from my hostel job- a job that was providing me with food & housing for the month in exchange for work- simply because the owner of the hostel said he didn't like me (I think I asked too many questions to be honest). I'm broke, and was originally told (when I e-mailed them through workaway) that I could work there for a few months. And I'm broke, because I was really hoping to get jobs teaching or tutoring English when the school year stared again, but if I didn't, I figured I could always do workaway again. But I never banked on getting fired and am having trouble finding a last minute workaway job. If anyone has a place I could crash at for a few days while I figure things out, or knows of any places that would provide food and housing in exchange for work (similar to those on workaway.info) please let me know!! I know this is largely my fault for not having a back up plan, but I've had such rich & rewarding experiences through workaway in the past, that I never expected this to happen. I'm flabergasted and scared, as I need to leave the hostel by wednesday morning at the latest, and I have about $100 left to my name. And again, totally should have budgeted better, but if you can see it in your heart to help me it would mean the world. I don't need to stay long, because worst case scenerio I will go work on a farm somewhere.

Thanks and Cthulu bless you all!
