The job search can be distressing and touch but if you keep at it, you will find something. Keep in mind that it may not be your dream job, but once you get your foot in the door, you can position yourself to get into your dream position. A good way to get into a company is to go to their Human Resources and ask to volunteer in order to learn. Yes, I said volunteer, especially for those who are unemployed or on unemployment. If you volunteer at a company, when a position opens, they would consider you before they consider someone from the outside. I've landed a couple of great jobs this way. However, you've got to think outside the box in order to get where you want. You might consider it "giving your time away for nothing," however, the short period of time I spent volunteering my time was paid three and four times over when I landed good paying positions. It is a good way for you to see if it is a company you would like to start a long term relationship with and it is a great way for the company to know what they are getting before they pay for it.
It is a easy way to put your foot in the door. Companies usually hire from within before they take outside application. Though you are not officially on the payroll, your considered "within" the company. Hospitals, Offices and Services Orientated places are great places to volunteer your time.

Also, make sure you have at least one good suit to wear to interviews. You can always dry clean it, but you should have at least one good suit or suitable attire for interviewing.
