My significant other has several misdemeanors on his record (the last one being less than a year ago for violating a restraining order when a friend emailed his estranged son). He is looking for a job. I just bought a house, and even though I make good money as a nurse, it would help immensely if he could participate in helping with expenses. Does anyone have any ideas? He is 56 (I'm 47), overweight, very personable and pleasant, with a history of mostly sales: car sales mostly. He also worked as a non-degreed engineer 20 years ago. He is also bipolar (we just found out last year - thank God it explained a lot of his behavior). His divorce was bad - 20 years ago - and his exwife got full custody of the son they had together. He hasn't been able to see his son since the boy was 3.
Anyway, the last job he has was about 5 years ago as a car saleman....he says the jobs never last long because of the competition with other salemen etc. Does anyone have any ideas? Also, he has been going to a community college for Aviation Operations. He LOVES airplanes and cars. He is also very handy around my house and just bought a truck. He's a people person. Please help! Any ideas appreciated! He's applied to several furniture store sales positions and couldn't pass the background check.
