Posted:Poor sweet one.

I find job hunting something akin to shopping for a bikini - soul crushing and devestating to the self esteem.

good things will find you!

Posted:Just keep going and don't get too down spirited. I've been trying to get contract and freelance IT work, and being a bit fussy about the work I take, and it's like looking for work non-stop. Sometimes I get somewhat down about the hassle and missed oportunities, but something always seems to turn up.



So cheer up, it's only a job and we're in a recession (you US guys way more tha us) so one month ain't that long to look. smile



Edit: Flash Fire. Bikinis. Yowsers!!!!!!!! I need an iced shower!

Advance apologies to the sassy one wink

I hear you loud and clear. I just recently ended my unemployment. I took a crappy job with "idiots" just so I could keep my tiny apartment in the "ghetto" and not starve to death. ubblol I do have to say though, I go to work everyday with a positive attitude and the hope that things will get better. Looking for a job sucks! I wish you tons of luck. There is a job that you are supposed to have and it will find you when the time is right.

Trust in the universe to take of you. And, if you run out of money and wear out your welcome, you are welcome to have my couch, in the ghetto, and share my Ramen noodles.

Don't give up and try not to worry. smile

Posted:Yeah i have the greatest sympathy for you. I was job hunting for 5 months, and i got to the lowest i've ever felt before.

But things will look up, may just take time - which i know feels like forever. hug

Have you tried all the agencys around you? and the newspapers? Also online agencys that are good - totaljobs.com - found that one good. Also writing a letter and attaching your CV to all the companies in the area, just go through the Yellow Pages or Phone Book. Anyway i hope this helps, and you find something soon hug
