Have you been out of work for more than a year? How have you been coping or making ends meet?
I am in a single household and been out of work for over two years. Granted I was in grad school full time, but was actively looking for work at the same time with no luck. I have had numerous interviews, but no offers. It’s been depressing at times and makes me second guess my abilities and worth. Everyday I am either updating my LinkedIn profile, resume and cover letter, or signing up to staffing agencies (which I find are not the same as they use to be). My bank account is finally tapped out. I’m surviving off of credit cards and I’m about to withdraw from my retirement to keep me going. Stress level is at all time high. Never been in this position before and hope to never be again.
