I’ve been unemployed for 4 mos and can’t seem to get a job. I’ve gone on countless interviews with no success. I knew around the holidays things would get quiet but it’s middle-Jan and haven’t heard anything. I’m starting to get nervous I won’t find anything. It’s a horrible feeling.

How do I get in touch with a supervisor over the agents that help you find jobs?

The truth is I ideally know more than the Managements think.
You go in and fill out the application and answer the work experience.
The time spent with companies and why did you leave.
But no manager will understand, what you could bring to there company.
If all my year's of service don't matter why do they ask?
Older employees bring so much more, but experience can't get you to stay with them.
Listing that experience could help or hinder you.

My years in the service almost broke me. The only way I have come to hold a job at all is by working at nights just so I can avoid almost all people. I don't like going out and doing stuff and it is hard to get my head on straight to even manage a trip to a store or even to my VA appointments. The only time I feel okay in the slightest is locked away in my home. What kind of jobs would be good for me to do? Can anyone help? I really need this.
