PMET earning $5000 before jobless for 6 months and feeling desperate

Hi Gilbert,

It is tough for me to finally decide to write to you as I really have no one to turn to now.

I was unemployed for 6 months and I have been paying my credit cards debts using my savings. As I do not have alot of savings, I can only pay the minimum sum for all the 5 cards. My funds are depleting now and I still cannot secure a job.

I have been to around 20 interviews but I just cannot understand why I still cannot secure a job. I am lost, stress and depressed. I also start questioning my self-worth.

My friends mocked at me and ask why am I still jobless after so long, is it that I am not trying hard enough? I was hurt by the comments. They have no idea how many resumes I have sent out.

As I have depleted most of my savings, I am reaching out and seeking for your help. I don’t know what to do now.

    Hi El,

    If your friends still mock at you. I think is time for you to see clearly which are your truly good friends to help you in your difficult time and which one you could ignore them forever.
    Stay strong and believe in yourself you could land a job in near time.
