    Getting frustrated

    Ok, been doing this job search shit for a while only one bite. Hell i have even applied to a few positions at invacare that would be perfect for me and they supposedly love hiring gimps, WTF. IM VIRTUALING JUGGLING 2 JOBS MY REG JOB AND FINDING A JOB.

    I have hit summa, fed gov, state gov, and most of the large corps here in akron, canton, and cleveland. I guess all that really matters is who u know, not the fact i have had only 3 jobs in 12 years w/no gaps, my resume is very strong, and i run a non profit org. ........im getting pissed.

    thoughts??

    What about the colleges in the area, or the sport teams?

    What industry is near you?

    I was going to suggest colleges/universities as well.

    Hospitals? Health Corporations (HMO's)? Pharma?

    Tough time of year to job hunt ... especially in this economy.

    With the unemployment rate I am sure it is not just you. The positions probably have about 300 applicants that are applying. I know when I post a position I get flooded with resumes now. Just keep plugging away something will come up.

    Its a bad time to be looking for jobs, esp. in healthcare. Except for certain clinical jobs (nurses, PTs, etc.) many for-profits and even not-for-profit health care companies are going through lay-offs and certainly are not hiring...they are eliminating positions, not adding them.

    You may have to look further afield...out of your current location, and also in different job classifications, and keep looking. It is going to take time.
