Made some good money off a group of 10 people. This is where I was getting some money and it was kind of door to door. Worst thing was talking to people about debt and stuff and I was in the same vote about it being shady. Like how do I make money off other people that I brought into the business? Well I stopped it because the Government raped my income tax but I still made some decent coin. I suggest that you get in contact with whatever you plan on doing in life (I myself am about to start a framing and drywall apprenticeship with a union) and get that started. Find out what you need ect. and go from there. Have faith that someone will end up giving a chance. In all my interviews I've ever done, I've always asked for the chance to prove myself, and you usually get a chance at it. Unfortunately, most people are hurting for jobs since the economy went boom. So keep your head up, keep pestering people and sending out those resumes like they are going out of style. People tend to see you when you send 5 resumes when others send 1.
You NEVER EVER send out more than 1 resume. Even if you are looking fort some entry level crap. Not only it's rude but, it's no more than soliciting and you are shooting yourself in the foot right of the bat and shut down your chance for an interview. If they are hiring for someone with your skills they DEFINITELY looked at you. The only thing you can do is wait for them to call you for an interview.

Hasn't been that way for me. Just my area has a lot of college kids that seem to suck the work force to almost nil. Oh well..

I never sed more than one resume but I make myself stand out in other ways.
I usually call and follow up on the resume and schedule an interview if they liked what they saw. Then after the interview I eaither call back again or email them and thank them for the opportunity to come in.
It's worked every single time so far. In my current position there were 72 applicants and I got the job.
