Job Rejection: How Can I Get Back on the Horse?

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!
