Of course there are jobs out there. The issue is not whether or not there are jobs, the issue is with the massive turnouts for a handful of positions;
in which abundantly qualified laborers clash with fresh-meat know-nothings.
With all the layoffs and job losses, it's no wonder that you find it really difficult to land a spot.
Most of my experience is in food service, I've gone to school for it and have a letter of recommendation but only a year of experience in the
I've applied at who knows HOW many McDonalds positions. Tons, and tons of fast-food places and regular restaurants. Italian restaurants, Mexican
restaurants, Japanese restaurants, etc.
(I live in NYC.)
For one interview I had to get on a line that LITERALLY went outside and around the block. This was during the winter and it was like 19 degrees
outside. I was tremendously pissed.
I have a job now, but it is only seasonal. I'm still applying constantly, I've been searching since early autumn of last year.
All in all, it is a very annoying situation.
