It's August and I'm still not working

So what's up with that!! I've been busting my ass sending out resumes and cover letters, rewriting my resume, and scanning the globe for a freaking job.  I even went so far as to sign up with a temp agency hoping to get a temp job to pay my gas.  I took all their tests including typing and graded out pretty well.

But no luck yet.  I'm a smart guy, hard worker, excellent track record of success, and I present myself well.  I'm not looking to be a CEO or a VP dammit.  I'm happy being a manager or director.  I don't have an issue with hard work, multitasking, and fixing a broken process.  I thrive on that shit.

What's it going to take to get a job in this economy?  Am I going to have to change careers and become a personal masseuse to some cougars?  Will I start showing up at your door with a funky red and blue shirt knocking and simultaneously saying "Dominos:"?  I don't have a clue but I got to do something because I'm going stir crazy.

I got asked to coach Volleyball the other day.  I'm still pondering and whether I can make that commitment only because I'm holding out hope that some job offer will come my way.  I knew it'd be hard but this hard with my qualifications..I'm floored. To make matters worse, S&P just downgraded the U.S. debt which is sending the stock market into a downward spiral.  I'm afraid to look at my portfolio because I'm thinking the paper loss is double digits.

Anyway, I've got to keep a positive outlook on things and continue to work on self improvement, my work in progress garden shed, and keeping in touch with my friends.
