I’m Unemployed and Running Out of Money to Pay My Bills

“Dear Steve,

I am unemployed and have about $13,000 in credit card and owe about $7,500 on my auto. If I don’t get a job soon I will be unable to pay monthly bills. I don’t know what to do. I know debt solution or bankruptcy would affect my getting hired.

Any suggestions?
