Just like you, I used to suffer from chronic job search. The constant look for work and repeated rejection were miserable. I would pour my energy into a cover letter and resume, only to never hear a word from an employer. Then, I'd call in desperation to find out the job was already filled. On the rare occasion I got an interview, I was sure I nailed it. Then I'd find out they picked someone else. It was just miserable. And, I really feel for anyone else putting up with chronic job search. But, you know what? It doesn't have to be this way.
