Frustration has hit a high point today. Over the last week I've sent out over 50 resumes and whatnot to a variety of places. I've received 4 responses, not including about 5 automated responses ("we have received your resume and will contact you if there is a fit, etc"). Argh. I love advertising and doing what I do. The problem solving aspects and the creativity. And I really don't know what else to do. I'm afraid of finding a job that I will be miserable in...just to pay the bills. Although, with the way the economy is going I may not have a choice. I am at my wits end trying to figure out a solution to this problem. All I want is to work in the field that I am trained to work in, that I'm good at, that I enjoy doing. Apparently that's too much to ask for at this time. I feel like a failure and a total waste of "being" right now.
*sigh* Not only that but it doesn't seem that my industry has done a damn thing to help those of us in this position. They do not report anything about it in the industry rags. They just gloss it over as if it's not happening. What the hell? It just seems rather fucked up. An industry should rally behind their unemployed to help them get back on their feet, or at least provide some kind of support, if only in article form.
