Good job

Today, my roommate has a job interview. He only applied to the job yesterday. Meanwhile, I've been out of work for three weeks. I've applied to at least ten jobs. I have yet to get a call-back from any of them. FML

Maybe he's a more desirable candidate for the job he applied for. It could be your resume. It also depends on what jobs you've been applying for versus what he applied for.
I'd also suggest maybe calling or actually visiting the location where you applied to so they know how interested you are. I did that for the last job I had. I do understand your frustration though.

Maybe take a look at his resume and cover letter to see if there is a huge difference in style. It does make a difference with companies that scan before having someone look at what passed the scan. You may need to spruce up the writing to sound excited about even boring responsibilities. I reworded my nephews and he started getting call backs. Didn’t lie. Just write it up differently. You are selling yourself. And your soul.

If I’ve learned anything from this site, it’s to make sure “I love blowjobs “ isn’t discretely put on your resume by someone else. You better check.
