    Tired Of It.

    I am tired of searching for a job. I've had a vocational specialist who has been trying to help me find one for the past 2 1/2 years now. But all I've gotten out of numerous applications is one job interview last August. I have absolutely nothing to put on a resume. Even though...

    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?

    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...
