    Unbelievable :(

    I had two options, get fired or quit.. I chose to quit and on the spot.

    Now what do I do? I had to pay for our car problems and so I have about enough to pay this months board and then what?

    What should I do? I put in lots of apps at just about every place I can think and no calls back

    I call it beating the bushes. I would stop everyplace that I thought might have a job I could do and put in an application. I have never gotten a job via an advertisment. Be assertive in an interview tell them what a great asset you will be and how hard you will work. If you have to take a job you don't really want or that the pay is less than you need just to get by. Its easier to look for a job when you already have one. Hopefully something will turn up QUICK, best of luck to you.

    What does your resume/cover letter look like? These are key. Make sure they are professional with zero errors. Details are very important. Even if you're just filling out applications from companies, pairing them up with cover letters and resumes can make a big statement. Use actual resume paper to show even more professionalism.

    Be confident in your abilities. Don't be afraid to apply for positions for which you feel you might not be 100% qualified. Some companies are looking for entry level people who's minds are not cluttered with "the right way" of doing things, so they can train them in the way they want.

    I work for a company that receives an average of 65-70 applications for every job we post. People with cover letter errors such as spelling our company name (or anything else) wrong aren't even considered. We honestly had someone turn in a resume with an email address that was something along the lines of "sexybabe69@yahoo.com" NOT very professional.
