I have been unemployed for 1 year, but I have been interviewing constantly. I recommend that you use the skills you have,ie. Word,Excel,Powerpoint, and see if in your area there are positions in Customer Service,Collections,Medical industry, etc. You probably have the skills needed in many other careers, you just have to determine what you what to do, and go for it! There is lots of training for free or minimim costs, like what Monster is doing now with Word, Excel,etc, so check that out also. Best of Luck to you! They say 76% of the people are unhappy in their positions and then there are the rest of us that are unemployed. Hang in there! Do alot of networking!
