Ask someone to look over your resume, go to career fairs and try to stay positive! Good luck OP!
This, especially if you aren't getting calls. A second and even third set of eyes can't hurt - just make sure it is someone who has no qualms about being honest. I had my mother in law do mine as she not only is honest but is a college professor who has helped many students get jobs.
What is your degree and what are you applying for? If you are applying for high level jobs without experience, it makes sense that you're not getting interviews. Sales jobs usually don't have requirements other than a high school diploma. While you're waiting to get interviews, try to get an entry level job to support yourself and so you can say that you've been doing something other than sitting around.
Sales jobs are the oddballs of the working world. If you've got the gift of gab, you can land one easy. Hang in there OP, and consider doing some volunteer work while you're waiting for your turn. It looks better to say you've been filling your time productively, and it is a real confidence booster!
Sounds like a situation that happened with my mom and husband. My mom had been looking for a job with a vet and couldn't find one for weeks, meanwhile, my husband moved down to my city and found a job within a day because he applied to 30 jobs on Craigslist. Keep your head up, OP. You'll find something soon! Ask your brother what he did, maybe he can help you out.
