the market is tough for a lot of people, lot of folks looking and more companies are downsizing or cutting back on expenses/benefits to watch their bottom line. Easier said than done but dont get discouraged and look for new opportunities. Some temp agencies might be worth the time but from what I've seen a lot aren't. Cut back on spending, so you can stretch out what you got to cover living expenses. Tough to rebrand yourself when you're on limited income and out of work, so just be open to opportunities, even part time that can get you some income while you look for somethingfull time. Indeed and other free job search sites are a good start, but for me, I prefer applying on the company's website direct. Look at your experience/background because that's what employers want to see, it shows you have skills/expertise. Its fine to have goals and want to do other things but when you're out of work and need to pay bills you need to be more open. If you have friends or family here, reach out to them and let them know your situation, so if they hear of anything they'll notify you. Volunteering can help too-there are a ton of companies especially nonprofit in need. Besides supporting a good cause, you'll get your foot in the door, meet professionals, network with them and show them why you should be considered for something part/full time in their organization. Someone who's reliable, hardworking and professional isn't easy to find, so you'll get noticed. I worked in a nonprofit for 6 years, we hired people full time who originally started temps because they actually acted professional, were reliable and worked diligently. Best of luck to you, just try to stay positive because that comes across when you talk to people.
