Why is it taking me so long to find a job if I applied to so many?

I understand that it's the recession, but some people that I know were able to find jobs quickly. I am becoming very depressed because I have been out of work too long, and no one wants to give me a chance. I even tried to get my old job back but the manager never got back to be with a response on whether I can be rehired. So I assume that he does not want to rehire me. I am a very good worker, but still I am having no luck. I noticed that when I was not in school before, I was able to find a job quickly. Now that I'm in school it's hard for me to find work. My parents are upset that I don't have a job, and now they have a lack of communication with me. I'm afraid that if I don't get a job soon that I will be in debt. I even had thoughts of suicide. The college that I attend is not offering work-study because they had to cut back. I have applied to so many places such as, Modells, Wendy's, CVS, Mc Donald's, Walgreens, Burger King, Staples, Barnes and Noble, Century 21, NY and Company, and Rite Aid. I'm very aggravated at this point, because when I called to find out the status of my application nothing has been done on their end. What advice do you have? Please help, thanks!

Perhaps you should go to your career one-stop (could be called the unemployment office). A counselor there should be able to help you pin-point the reason that you are having difficulty if you ask for some honest advice... More
