Sigh. Got up today..checked my mailbox. Got a letter from my latest place that I applied to looking for a better job. "Thank you for applying, while you do have an impressive list of skills available....blah blah blah we picked someone else over you. Good luck in the future." This is pissing me off! BIGTIME!!!!! I am getting sick and tired of this. Basically I am at a job doing dialup ISP support for home residences at a $3,600 paycut from my last job due to a layoff at the end of June. I am on my last leg on this job as I have been written up for being rude to people call in. Im not really, I just talk fast and go straight to the problem without trying to have a converation about someone's sick dog and why they need to IM their sister in Vermont. That I dont care about, I just care about getting you online so you have the ability...what you do past then is your business. Anyway I am barely making it from paycheck to paycheck paying my house payment, credit card and utility bills. I have applied to more than 20 different places in the last month alone and have not heard back from hardly any of them. The ones I do hear from I either get the inital interview of application process done and then either don't hear from them again or get said rejection letter in the mail. What can I do? I am studying for CCNA certifcation to add to my resume, I also got my A+ in the middle of August. Im wanting to get off the phones and get more hands on work with computers and networks and such but I can't find any bites. Every rejection letter received just adds another notch to the depression meter as it seems that he job market is over saturated due to lay offs and that there is always someone just 1 step ahead of me getting the jobs I go for.
