You're in an overwhelming situation.You can't blame yourself. A lot of families across the country are having similar problems. It's nothing you've done wrong. It's the economy. We're still in a recession/depression despite what the politicians and pundits say. Recovery has been slow and unfortunately, too many companies are still laying off employees. I know, I was one of those employees. I spent 16+ years with the same company only to be laid off in July. I've been looking for a new job for the last two months. I'll say it, looking for work is depressing. There just aren't enough jobs out there for everyone.
But you have to keep trying. Don't give up. Fall is a much better time to find a job for different reasons. Have you tried these websites ? If not... here are some listings/websites that might help you in your search. Forget about using monster.com. No one uses monster anymore. they use these. In particular, I highly recommend that you create your professional profile on the LINKED IN website. that's a website for professional people to make connections with other professionals. They also have job listings posted. It's free. although, they do have an "enhanced" website for extra. the free site is fine. that's what I use. www.indeed.com www.linkup.com/ www.linkedin.com/
there is always hope !! Things will get better even though it may not seem like it now.
