Laid off from a great paying, but incredibly high stress job in November 2009. Decided to go back to school to learn a new career, only to find that the only jobs available in said career path are for people who are already IN said career field, and have umpteen years experience. There are ZERO entry level jobs available. I used to say to folks that if I ever got laid off, I could find a job doing SOMETHING very quickly. I was deluded. I have oodles of experience, a great attitude, a stellar work ethic, and I can't even get hired on as a part time cashier at Bi-Mart! What the hell is wrong with me? I've made it clear to employers that I'm looking for long term employment! I don't want to work for some place until something better comes along. I want a whole new career. I don't care if I have to start at the very bottom! I'm smart, flexible, and reliable. So why the hell can't I find a job?!
