    No, we're in a townhouse abour 20 minutes north of downtown. Those apartments didn't really have the amount of space that we were looking for. We ended up driving through Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and finally Washington. Started off boring, but then got better and better!

  6. Ahhhh, yes! Iíd love to see Wyoming and Idaho!

    I canít imagine how much those high rises are! I really love north Seattle or Everett.

    FYI, donít ever believe a hotel and itís location! My Portland hotel is really in Gresham and my Seattle hotel was really in sea-tac (the Uber guy said it was its own city). Lol, I spent $60 round trip from Sea-Tac to downtown.

    So far Iíve applied for 123 jobs and this does not include state jobs, and have had 2-3 interviews. I canít give up, though.
    Seems like your utilizing Indeed! Have you tried LinkedIn?
    Lets Say you do everything that you are supposed to do. You check all the boxes. You Believe, you prepare, you work, you fight, and you know your why, and Life still catches you on your blindside..... Just remember Failure Is Never Final !!!!

    No. We took 84 through Boise and didn't meet up with 90 until after Yakima. Now that I'm in the area though I will definitely be checking out everything here so feel free to send me anything that I shouldn't pass up.

    Where are you in North Carolina? My childhood friend moved to Charlotte, and I have relatives there as well. Was telling my mom we should go there before I start school. Fly to North Carolina and drive down to Florida.

    Lol, that went out the window. I was not desperate but I was positive and enthusiastic. It changes the whole dynamic when you have a great interviewer. We joked and laughed and he was very understanding.

    Thank you! I really appreciate it! Iíve been applying a lot to the state as well and scoring really high on all their tests. 🤞🏽

    No. Never.

    I applied to 258 positions via Linkedin, another 91 via Indeed. Plus Glasdoor and other sites. Never gave up.

    Have a super smart ex-colleague has been under-employed for three years now. I would say maybe 200+ interviews. No luck. I have known her since 2012. Outstanding salesperson. Too smart and extrovert for her own good. I clicked with her. Most would feel threatened. She has learned to be clinical at interviews, so hopefully soon will obtain a position commensurate with her intelligence.

    Things happen. Take a hard look at your resume, your letters, your appearance at interviews, body language, how you answer, etc.

    It is ok to be down. Get back up again afterwards.

    Lotka's Law is in your favor.

    Thank you, itís just really disheartening. Thereís a job fair on Thursday that I will be going to. I have to give my all and try my best.

    I canít imagine being unemployed for three years. Itís like jobs nowadays hire for personality, you canít be too much of this or that. I understand, though. At my last job, if I was too quiet and focusing on work, ďsomething was wrong and I was having a bad day.Ē

    Thanks for your words of encouragement! I really appreciate it.

    I got a call from the guy who interviewed me. He said it was between me and another person. But of course he hired the other person. Iím sure it was between me and everyone he interviewed, oh well. On to the next one...

    I messaged my old classmate, told him that I donít know about law school. If itís this difficult to get a job, what good will another degree be?
