Exactly, if it's clear what the poster's agenda is on this board it's just so easy to ignore them. No need in getting in a argument with a stranger on a message board

Remember it's no need to waste energy on responding to stupid comments.
They don't get under my skin. For the most part, they are speaking the truth. Sorry that the truth is so inconvenient for you. Nobody is paying $20/hr for B.S. fluff jobs these days. Gotta be worth it. And even then, they are gonna try to talk you down to $15/hr. Yup, I've been on the loosing side of that equation in the past too.

Seriously spend 3-4 hours a day searching, have a well written resume, and you should be able to find something sooner or later. I had 2 offers in 4 months of looking (second of which I took)
How could you find 10-20 jobs that you qualify for? I bet you got those "Experience Needed" req's and didn't meet the qualifications for them.
