Job Hunt

I've been hunting for a job the past week or so and it is, to be honest, a brutal endevor. It's been four years since I last threw my hat into the job hunting ring and I'd forgotten just how awful job hunting could be. I feel like I've walked into a lion's den while wearing a hat made of raw meat.
In the last week I've applied for twelve positions. They're a mix of retail and clerical jobs. I've also applied for unemployment, which is just personally galling.
I'm hoping I can find something soon, because I really don't want to have to be on unemployment. It feels demeaning.
But I'm hopeful something will open up for me soon.
*fingers crossed*

Ugh

The other day I registered with a local temp service. I met the recruiter and we had a pleasant conversation. At the end of the meeting, she said she had a job she thought I'd be a good choice for, with a State Agency. She was going to email me the details and put me on the contractor's call list.
Well, I never got the email. This afternoon, the recruiter did contact me, but when he called I was in the middle of traffic, so I asked if he could call me back in ten minutes. That way I could park my car and focus on the interview.
Yeah.
The guy never called back.
I still haven't heard from the temp service, which just pisses me off.
Honestly, the more time I spend, dealing with recruiters and hiring managers, the lower my personal estimation of the human race becomes.
