    I know a kid that after working mcdonalds for 2 years is now working at Costco.

    Making $11 / hour with nice hours.

    Do not go to sites like you went to for jobs. And leave cragislist alone.

    Go to the companies you want to work for and apply directly online. Keep a calendar.

    You are much more likely to find a job by asking around - friends of friends, your friends parents, at church, family members, etc. That's called networking. It may solve your problem of figuring out which kind of job you want next, because chances are you won't find more than one or two possibilities - but as long as it sounds like a decent job, it's worth taking just to get experience.

    He'll, you think you got problems? Just wait until you're 44 like I am and then unemployed, that really bites.

    Luckily, I don't look 44 at all so maybe, just maybe someone will consider me for employment.

    Times are tougher than ever right now, so just be glad you've actually got a job.
