I'm currently hunting for a new job--although I recently got a job, they just cut all staff hours on orders from head office.  I haven't worked in two weeks.  So I've been hunting for a new job.  In four days I've handed out fifty resumes, and I must have talked to at least that many places again that weren't hiring. It gets disheartening after being told the tenth or twentieth time that "sorry, we aren't hiring right now".   :(

Well, time to stop feeling sorry for myself and go print out some more resumes and cover letters!  Bye for now, Santharia, I'll see you later! wave

I can certainly sympathize. I have a job, but it doesn't pay enough to pay the bills. Today I'm going to the cannery to apply.

Yep, I know how that feels - only had to search for a brief time after university, but it job hunting isn't really fun. Hope you get something soon, Alysse! Good luck at any rate!  thumbup

Good luck to you!

Thanks for all your kind wishes. people.  It does help to hear that.  Seventy resumes down, another who knows how many to go!

I figure by the time I get a hundred out, I might actually start hearing back from some of these places?  'Cause I'm not stopping until I get a job!

Best of luck to the other folks out there looking for work, I hope you find something soon!

Well, I had my first interview today, went really well!  I'll hear back after they get done with the police check and set up an interview with the store manager, so we'll see how it goes, but they did say they liked me.

And another interview scheduled for Monday...
