Aww, sorry Palady, it's really a bummer to run out of UE and have nothing left. The problem with the extension is that republicans (and Bush) are adamantly against it, so I don't think there will be another extiension. I know some unemployed people, who, at their interviews, were actually told they were lucky to be picked because they don't look through all the resumes...they just grab some out of the pile and call them. The rest go by the wayside. That doesn't sound very promising. One good thing, I had applied for 1 job a couple months ago, where they use an agency to weed out people to send to them for interviews. Well, the agency got over 450 resumes for the job and thank god mine was 1 that was picked, so I already went through several rounds of testing, which i passed, and I do have an interview coming up. I really hope I get that job! I'm doing as much research as possible and hoping to find some info that maybe other applicants won't find, so as to stand out. It sucks, because I can't even go work at any stores in the interim for money, as I cannot stand; and I had a few lower paying office jobs, but they all say I'm "overqualifiied". I just hope my disabilitites dont' prevent me from getting a good job, even though I know it can't be used against me. I even got a state grant to go back to school for more training, which I did for 6 1/2 months, but even that is not getting me anywhere. I am trying so hard not to let it get me down, that's for sure.
