Two More Job Seekers Hope You'll Give Them A Chance

In this weeks installment of the economy "Hitting Home," we meet Krysta Carson and Jonathan Smith.

They live in Carteret County.

Carson moved to Eastern Carolina in September to be with family and near the ocean.

She says she can be an asset to any corporation, with experience in clerical work.

"I am looking for paralegal or legal assistant," Carson said. "I can do any clerical position. I have a legal background, worked at a sheriff's department."

Smith is an Iraq war veteran. He's been looking for a job for the past three weeks. Smith says he spent five years in the Marine Corps, where he worked in purchasing supplies and other necessities for the troops.

He says his strong work ethic, military background and experience in purchasing will help, but he's already considering another military path.

"I hope that i can find something else," Smith said. "But I have been looking to go into the army."

You can reach Smith at (910)650-9962.

Carmaria Watkins and Ronald Myatt are two of thousands of people in Eastern Carolina looking for jobs.

Myatt has a background in the car service industry, while Watkins has a culinary background.

Both are from Onslow County.

Myatt says after years working in the car industry, he is open to trying something different.

“I’m going to look for retail and sales,” Myatt said. “I have personality, I enjoy the public, and I am a people person.”

Myatt has filled out dozens of applications. He says he has a child to support and needs to get back to work.

Watkins has also filled out a slew of applications. Her strength is culinary. She hopes to get a job in catering, banquet parties, event planning, child care or group homes or as a private chef.

“I went to culinary school,” Watkins said. “I came out as a sous chef and have been cooking since I was 16. I am a diligent worker.”

Both Watkins and Myatt say they can start work immediately.

    If you guys can swing it, Go to Myrtle Beach and wait tables this summer. In a good restuarant like Crabby Mikes, Margrativille or Benjamins Calabash you can make over $300 each night in tips. I'm in grad school and I have been going down there and doing for the past seven years. Rent is not that bad there and everything else cost the same and gas is about 15 cents less than here in NC. It's hard work, you will walk about 8 miles per night, but you get used to it. Good luck in your search, you both have great resumes and experience.
