    Oh, I was just wanting to look for employment in that area. Just wanted to see what was available. I bought a subscription to the Walton Sun online edition. Thanks for your help.

    You can view the classifieds from the Walton Sun online for free -- I think.

    Re: Classifieds in South Walton

    It was $13.00 for 26 weeks, or you could subscribe for $25.00 for 52 weeks. It seemed reasonable to me.

    Re: Classifieds in South Walton

    I tried to look at them for free and couldn't. I had to subscribe to be able to view them, unless you know of another way. I paid $13.00 for 26 weeks. You can also pay $25.00 for 52 weeks.

    Re: Classifieds in South Walton

    http://www.emeraldcoast.com This site has all the classifieds from all the area newspapers. The Walton Sun classifieds are limited to mostly South Walton. Many people work in Bay County or Okaloosa County as well as others parts of Walton County. The site is free.

    Re: Classifieds in South Walton

    I tend to be my husband's job scout.
    I haven't had the greatest luck with emeraldcoast.com.
    It might just be the wording or something, but it comes up with a big fat zero every time.
    I'll find jobs in my husband's field through the Walton Sun classifeds, or flipdog.com, or yahoo, and these same jobs never show up on emeraldcoast.com.
    I was just looking at the Walton Sun's classifieds just now and they were free for me. And they turned up a job which emeraldcoast did not show.
    I also look at the classifieds for the Port St Joe Star, but they are not all that up to date.
    I dunno. Sometimes I think word of mouth is best.
    But it would be cool if you had Classifieds, Kurt. :)

    No doubt the best jobs are gotten by knowing someone, or hearing about it through the grapevine. I bet some good jobs will be found/filled on this board.

    The Walton Sun's employment ads are free of charge, and they link you to emeraldcoastjobs.com.

    Go to Waltonsun.com

    Bam! you're in.

    ***and they link you to emeraldcoastjobs.com.***
    I thought this was the case, you could see it in the headers, which made it even more confusing when some jobs would show up in the Sun and others wouldn't at Emeraldcoast.
    Well, I will just keep looking. :)
    Looking for a new job in your 50's is a bit different, but you just never know.
    Thanks guys, and I hope Kathy doesn't mind me butting into her thread.

    Maybe you should tell us what kind of job you are looking for.

    I know you were probably directing this to Cil...but I thought I would tell you what I was looking for also. I am a Desktop Publisher. I have been employeed as a contractor with the U.S Army Corps of Engineers for 18 years. I produce training manuals for the Corps using all the Microsoft Office products, Adobe Photoshop, PageMaker, and CorelDraw. I have been a contractor for 22 years. I would love to get away from the Army and work for a commercial company. Actually, I would do any job if it paid me enough to live in South Walton !!!!! Thanks for any help.

    Have a Sunny Beach Day.

    Kathy

    Apparently when you cross the State line, they issue you a real estate license, so you could try that for awhile. :lol:

    Seriously though, with those skills you could get a job as a real estate assistant or office manager for realtor, builder, etc. There are always openings for office work.
