Too many. Years ago I spent 3 months straight going door to door dropping off applications or resumes, probably 15 to 20 a day before I got a job. The Employment office told me I was trying too hard and only had to do 3 contacts a week, I told them I wanted a job, not to sit at home collecting welfare.
I would say about 20-ish or so. I was looking for 14 months before landing my current job. The problem was the lack of enthusiasm, I was depressed and therefore had an negative attitude. My current job was something I was very eager for, therefore I showed interest, a positive attitude and I wanted this job.<br />
-- I wish you good luck in your job search.
none I took the first job that came along.
