I just wanted to let everyone know it is possible to get a job! But you need to stay positive because there might be a long road ahead! It took me over 8 months and sending out over 100 resumes, but I finally have a new job! I am so excited, and it shows in my work ethic. This particular job is a 6-month contract job to possible hire. This job is not the position I was originally looking for, however i am qualified to do it. A recruiter contacted me and asked if I wanted to do this type of work again. So i said yes!

8 months is a long time. The longest I have ever been looking for a job was 2 weeks and that was only because I wanted to spend some time with my family

Thank You DigitalArtist Jay, this was helpful. I don't spend a lot of time on LinkedIn, let alone a computer , and was unaware of this feature. The only issue I have with LinkedIn is the fact that You cannot submit an updated resume without purchasing their platinum option, but I have found a way around that. Thanks again.

Staying positive is easier said than done! I have been looking for a job for over a year and I’ve sent out roughly 240 resumes and had only 1 phone screen. It is beyond frustrating!!!
