Are you kidding?

Try this one on for size. I'm 40. I have two broken marriages, a kid that my tyrant of an ex-wife won't even let me talk to or wish happy birthday. And I'm not an abusive, child-molesting troll. I'm 6'3", handsome and grew up in a Christian home with good values and yes, I did embrace those, so I'm still a good guy.
I can't hold onto a job. I just got a job three weeks ago as a network administrator, two weeks after getting my master's degree in information systems conferred. Then I lost it because management wanted to go 100% outsourced. So I'm back at square one, living with my parents and my credit rating is taking a slide. I owe $50,000 in student loans along with all my other debts.
I don't even live in a town or community with any opportunity. I'm broke. To beat all, I have a great work ethic, I'm talented, patient, catch on quickly and dedicated. Sure, my family loves me but they've got nothing else to prove to anyone.
All my friends have been around the world and have done things that I'll probably never do. I have nothing. Nothing!
And the economy is in the toilet. There are no prospects. I've sent out about 175 resumes without even a call for an interview. Getting a job in this country is a joke anymore. It's got me to the point of where I hear anybody complain about their job, I put them in their place.
So life does suck for many of us. I honestly am starting to believe that this is my lot in life. Nothing will ever happen for me. I'm just going to have to face it. I'm going to die here.

Your life is more than your job. It's more than where you live and how much is in your bank account. We are alive for such a brief amount of time. Time is the real resource and it doesn't cost anything. You can't take your stuff and your savings with you when you run out of time.

Want a good American job? Move to India.
Want a good paying American job? Start an outsourcing firm to send American jobs to Asia. Taxpayer money will support you.

I feel for you. I work in Information Technology too. I have watched foreign workers move to the United States over the years and take the jobs. I work in Washington DC right now (I needed to move away from my family, lost my home, and my credit history is destroyed). and in DC, most of the IT jobs are held by foreigners. Indians, Chinese, etc are taking those jobs and the federal government doesn't give a shit. I told the feds they should hire Americans because so many are unemployed. They just don't care.

You might want consider moving to DC for work though. Much work is available. However, you might need to move away from your family. Yes it is a horrible choice. I miss my child so much and the pain is almost unbearable, however I am able to put some away for his college.

DC makes me sick. The don't care about the rest of the United States. They are having a great time down and don't give a crap about the country they are should be supporting.

In the end, this life is painful, stupid, brutal and ugly. I will great death, when it comes with relief.

I say lower your standards. you dont realize how few people can get a job in there field right out of college. if you have to work fast food WORK IT. who cares if u hate it its a paycheck untill you get the job you want especially when u work in a field that alot of people go for. stop moping around and dont expect the top. Walmart hires people like its going out of business. pays enough where u can live comfortably and has benefits. it isnt a dream job but its something
