Hi Renée Don't be disappointed you're not alone out there I've been unemployed too for months on end in my career path. The only advice I can tell you is keep a positive attitude for every door that closes a new one opens that's what keeps me going knowing a pot of gold is at the end of the rainbow and guess what you'll find it take care and be positive

First you need to pull off all of that experience and move to a two page resume. I was laid off and couldn't get an interview. A good HR person informed me that 16 yrs as an officer in the military and 7 yrs. in medical care work didn't help me at all. So I took out all military service and put only 4 yrs of medical work plus my education. I was turning down interviews and jobs within one week. See, bragging too much about being the best project manager or top saleswoman of the month could work against you. HR just wants to know if you can do your job. Who cares if you have 2 Master's degrees and 2 Ed.D's. The question is can you get to work on time and where are you willing to do your job. Easy when you stop bragging about yourself.

Find a new profession, get to Las Vegas. There are plenty of jobs for women and some pay beyond your belief. Women making 10k and up per month. Check it out.

Hello Renee, Congratulations on getting the interviews! You may want to go over the interviews and see how you could've improved or if possible ask the employer why you didn't get the position. Also, you may want to broaden your job search by signing up on job boards in various areas like City, State, Federal and Hospitals to have jobs automatically generated to you. Job clubs are a good networking tools as well.

Same here. Plenty experience but know one is hiring me. Tired of all the internet sites bounces you from one to the other.

Go in another direction , post your resume on Craigslist ,tell them work you are looking for,also don't always wait until a job is posted to apply ,call companies randomly to see if they are hiring or go to the job site physically and ask to talk to the Boss

Can you consult in your field? I did, and it really took off, and I landed a great job. Use linked in---do use your linked in connections--and connet with recruiters
