Ive been unemployed for nearly 6mos in Vegas. Ive applied for at least 180 jobs and nothing has come of it. Im very depressed and thinking about applying for social security. Disability!
Don't give up!
Sometimes getting a job comes down to who you know. Consider asking family, friends, past coworkers, and anyone else you know if they know of any job openings in their companies. Having an "in" to a company can be a huge help, as you're essentially being vetted by a trusted employee.
Have you been following up on your online applications? Showing initiative by calling/emailing HR managers can make the difference in landing an interview.
