Don't give up hope. I've been unemployed for almost a year. I continue to network with networking groups in the area and with friends from previous jobs. It is important to keep in touch with influential people you've worked with or know because it helps you to maintain an optimistic outlook and attitude about the situation you're in. Also, remember, there are many people out there desperate for jobs as you are. You are not alone. If unemployment has caused you financial hardships, there are resources in your community to turn to for help. Remember to take time out for you and try to continue your search on a daily basis, getting up as if you were going to work, bathing, and dressing up. Go to employment agencies, temp agencies, and leave your resume. Best of luck to you.
