    I swear I get more calls from the edegree

    and continuing education people than the people I am filling out applications for. The online process is convenient but it leaves a lot to be desired in terms of response time. I posted my resume and I get calls outside of my area so what's up with the people in my area? I need...

    Went out job searching today.

    .. I don't understand why some people say "no thanks, I'd rather not see your resume." What? Am I not even worth looking at?

    I'm starting to get kinda depressed about not

    having a job. I was really hoping I'd get the job at the library. I applied at a craft store yesterday so hopefully I'll hear from them. I just feel so lazy. My dad and siblings think I'm not trying but I am. I'm not in school yet but I was planning on going to community...

    Close to 300 applications (if not more!

    ), 20+ interviews, and it's now over a year later. How on earth do people keep motivation up to keep looking? I feel like just giving up, accepting that I've failed. So hard to keep muster up energy and enthusiasm for jobs and interviews with the search history in the back of my...
