It sucks though, because I waste my precious time revamping my resume to suit the position, filling out the applications, taking assessments, and writing cover letters for jobs that have no intention of even considering any of it. Not to mention, every rejection is a blow to the ego and my overall self-esteem.
All I want is an entry-level position. I'm not asking to make 6 figures. I'll be content with making just above poverty level, pushing papers and doing blitch work so long as it gets my foot in the door. I just want one chance, but it seems like I can't even get that.
I'm looking into joining Americorps and taking a few grad courses. Maybe that will help, or at least it'll buy me some time.
