Looking for work is hard work. There is a lot you need to know: How much do you need to earn to meet your basic family needs? How many jobs in your region pay a family-supporting wage? How many jobs are there, and how many jobseekers are competing for those jobs? What are your strongest skills? What jobs require those skills?
