One thing you can do is to stay connected to people and network, network, network. You would be surprised what is actaully out there that people don't know about. Before I started networking and talking to people I would hear too late that a company was looking for someone with my skills or someone would say I wish I had known you were looking.....It is stresful during the wait and I have learned to operate with very little to no money but things are starting to look up for me. Another thing you can do is volunteer. What that does is get you in the door of companies that may be hiring or know another company hiring. Plus, they can see firsthand what you can do so the application/resume is just a formality. That is what I did here at a non-profit organization and now I have a good chance of getting hired on permanently. Don't give in to the feelings of stress and depression. I did that for a few months but I feel so much better getting out of the house each day and now I have a good chance for getting hired. Don't give up!

there was a point in my life where i feel so depressed for not being able to find a job and not passing the interviews. i even thought of giving up and i felt that i really don't have what it takes to be a Call Center Agent. what makes the depression farther is the fact that my friends who were in the same training center as i was had already found their job while i on the other hand is still applying to the endorsed companies.

I do get stressed from time to time. As good as sleeping in and not having to deal with rush hour traffic sounds, I know it can't last forever. I haven't been out of work since 2001. This time I have a part-time weekend job to supplement my unemployment pay, so I don't have to cut quite as much from my budget. I haven't been able to find any available jobs in my field. For the past month, I've been applying at various fast food places, coffee houses and book stores, but I haven't had any luck yet. My unemployment pay stops at the end of October, so I'm hoping more jobs will be created/available by then.
