Have you considered for one tiny moment taking a look at what else you may be good at if you aren't finding the right job for YOU in this economy? Things are changing. Kids right out of college are claiming jobs that are rightfully theirs while we are still struggling to find employment out there. It's not their fault- they are on schedule to get hired- just as we did when we went looking for our first job. We had these jobs when these kids were still learning how to add and subtract. Now they are tech savvy and just as ambitious as we were at their age.
Look at what you know now and how you got here. Do you have any interests outside of what you did before you got the axe? Any hobbies? Start searching for a way that you can take what you have learned and turn it into a career.
Do you know enough to teach in your field? How about a consultant? Keep applying but it may be high time to consider the alternative to Full Time employment.
Keep in Touch- things can only get better from here,
