    ...someone who is going to hire me?

    Honestly there have been days when I feel blue due to lack of any bites from human resources and recruiters.

    Been applying, networking with all things in between. Some days I get calls, but only as preliminary inquires and no follow ups. Other days I get rejections.

    I'm not going to list nor brag about my worth. All I want is to contribute my skills and abilities to a company that will propel my career.. I gave up a cushy job and lifestyle because of security and safety. I don't regret moving back. However I am frightened that I'm going to age out and my background history becoming irrelevant.

    I have faith and continue to traverse the roaring rapids. I know I am one of many unemployed out there who continue to look out for break. All I want are the tears of pain to go away.

    Consider entrepreneurship. No one is every going to pay you what you're worth. I'd suggest finding a way to take your skills and what you know and applying them in a creative way to fill a neglected niche associated with something you love that may or may not be traditionally related to your skill set.

    It requires a different type of personality to tolerate the risks involved, but creating your own opportunity can be far, far, far more rewarding than working for someone else's benefit.

    You've already demonstrated the ability to come up with cool concepts. Now all you need to do is expand on that. icon_biggrin.gif

    ahhh....unemployment sucks

    It's like a plaque of modern world

    sometimes it feels like the greedy corporations wants the unemployment rate to be high so that when they give job to someone, they can turn the employee into a Muppet and makes them do whatever the employers like...
    They can also hire and fire as they like, whenever and wherever they like, because there is no shortage of unemployed people...

    I have few friends who are struggling for more than a year to find a good job! more or less I can feel your pain!

    *Hugs* to you

    The good thing is you have faith, most unemployed people lack or find it hard to believe in it! I hope you find a good job, when when you got one...people who rejected you will regret for missing an opportunity to hire someone as nice as you...
