I have been apart of this board for months but haven't posted in forever.  Every time I think about posting I feel like I am just whining.
 
Anyway, it has been seven months and I still haven't found a job even though I go on interviews every week!  I am either told that I am over-qualified or underqualified because I went straight through to get a MBA which means I have no work experience etc...
 
I am down to my last dollar which means I can't pay any bills, but thankfully I live with my parents so I don't have to worry about food or shelter.
 
I am trying to stay positive during this extremely difficult time and have started working-out and going to OA when I start to feel down and have lost 20 pounds since March and that makes me happy, but I still feel like a total loser and a waste of space.
 
I feel so frustrated in life and am wondering what horrible thing I have done to bad time after bad time.  I so want to get out of this black whole and be able to experience life!
 
To top it all off, my bestfriend who I have always loved is moving away for school, and he doesn't even seem like he will miss me.  I don't want to be depressed, alone, and jobless this summer and want to be able to go out enjoy the nice weather like everyone else, but I fear that my fear and frustration with life will take over what little joy that I have left.

Hiya,

Its nice that you came back. We don't mind people 'whining'... its all part of getting it out of your system. As for the job situation, it is something I hear a lot of here in the UK with graduate students. (Which will be me in a few short years). Unfortunately, employers are generally looking for youngr people with experience. It means that they (potentially) keep the emplolyee longer but have lower training costs. I find it very frustrating at the best of times. My father is looking for work after retiring from the Royal Navy (After being in 28 yrs) and he too is having the same issues. All I can suggest is keep smiling and applying. Everyones luck changes for the better at some point... and theres no reason why yours cant be tomorrow! Congratulations on losing the 20lbs as well!! Its obviously something you have been working towards and you should feel pround that you achieved it. As for your friend... I speak from experience (as a man!) when I say that men don't always show their emotions quite as they 'should'. Try talking to him, you may find that he misses you more than you think! (And you will never be more than a phone call / MSN message window apart!)

Take Care

Darren

Thanks Darren, it's nice to hear that someone understands!

I am really trying hard not to go back to that place where I couldn't get out of bed and cried all day long. It's exhausting trying to stay afloat but it helps to come here to be with people who care.

Sometimes exercise can be a good motivator. I know it sounds odd, but getting out and running (as an example) for 20 minutes does people the world of good. Even if its taking the dog out for a walk. But you have to get the motivation to do it in the first place and thats where you need to be strong
