      I feel your pain -- been out of work since 8/1/2001 -- and still looking... I find I go thru cycles -- phone screens, emails, and interviews, then nothing, lather, rinse, repeat.... It used to take me 2 weeks to find a new job - and this is driving me crazy -- going on 6 months now....
      • Well, my last paid day was Sep 20, 2001 so I guess it could be worse. :-( I understand that cycle well. Unfortunately I'm married & therefore have much higher living expenses (no roomies). Even with unemployment, I'm just barely getting by. My landlord is going to move for eviction soon if I don't give him some money...

        The whole situation is just driving me crazy. I want to work!
