Dear Experts, I have been job searching since August 2008; I also graduated in November of the same year. I have landed numerous interviews at various companies and have yet to land an offer. In fact, I have had 3 interviews in the last 3 weeks and was rejected for all 3 within the past week; one of them I REALLY thought I had a good chance of getting. I have implemented most of the advice you have shared over Twitter, etc. and over the past month, I have found myself losing hope about finding a job; coupled with the recent rejection, it's hard for me to even write a cover letter. I'm not sure if its just a case of being burned out or depression is getting the best of me. Do you have any advice on how I can get back on the horse? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#292 Start making "deposits" for success in family, physical exercise, & personal dev to combat that depression!

If the stress of juggling school, work, and family is making life difficult, you are not alone. According to a recent study on college employment, 43% of the nation's full-time college undergraduates and 81% of part-time undergraduates worked while getting a degree. Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?

Whether you're new to LinkedIn or you're a seasoned user, connecting with new people can be a challenge, especially when you're not sure what to write in your LinkedIn invitation. You might be tempted to use the generic "I'd like to add you to my professional network on LinkedIn" template, but beware! By not personalizing your message, you could lose a precious opportunity to network.
