i am so discouraged...

i am looking for a new job. i have to. i am unemployed right now. but nothing is seeming to work out for me. i have one to call on friday if i have not heard from them (i interviewed there on MAY 30th and have yet to hear about a 2nd interview because the one that would do that was/is out of town...). i have emailed or mailed out at least 30 resumes...i have had THREE interviews. i want a job i will be happy at and where i am treated with respect (unlike my previous job). today alone i have emailed about 5 jobs (1 for information, 4 with resumes) and mailed one resume...i can not bring myself to apply for a job i know i would be unhappy at. i also refuse to waste my time & the possible employer's time applying for something that i am unqualified for...

my biggest problem is that i do not have the degree to go with my experience! i have a bachelor of arts with a double major in print communication & spanish and a double minor in english & religion...HOWEVER, my work experience is in child care & education...

i applied for unemployment benefits...i have done all that is asked...they will be calling me on friday morning with some questions...so my gut is in knots thinking i will be rejected...

i can't afford to go back to school...i can't afford to not be employed much longer...i just can't handle it much longer...

Oh Becky, I'm so sorry :(
I meant to ask you about the job search last night but we were all in such a happy mood it seemed that I didn't want to bring you down.
I'm still praying for you and if I hear of anything, I will let you know.
