Is it virtually impossible to get a job in the UK now?

I am starting to loose patience. I have applied for over 30 bloody jobs and only two people have got bad to me. Im not even kidding. Am i doomed to never go to work ever again? If anyone from Birmingham is reading this, preferably an employer then please give me a job. Its verging on desperation now! Things are going to get bloody lol.
