Get busy looking for work... if you aren't working, you should be spending the time you would normally be working looking for work. And don't be afraid to tell everyone you know that you need a job. Too often when we're looking for jobs we forget the power of networking. Use your connections.... now is no time to be shy or ashamed. Attend job fairs, speak to your counselor at your college and let him or her know what is going on, if you attend church, tell your pastor and everyone who will listen that you need a job. Post flyers on bulletin boards advertising your services (lawn work, handyman, whatever you can do that people might need done). Good luck... a lot of us have been there or are still there.

You can always try day labor. You get paid every day.
What about waiting tables somewhere? Tips come in daily too and you don't need experience at a lot of places.

You should not give up on your job search. You can consider changing the structure of your resume or updating it all together to make it more attractive. You can lso engage in offering voluntary services to some institutions and probably venture into business. There are quite a number of small capital start-up businesses.

Call unemployment and find out why you don't qualify for unemployment payments and go to the job center/unemployment office where there are lists of available jobs in your area.

First dont lose your patience.Just keep your hope on yourself and as everybody said don't stop looking for jobs.Search for them everywhere and accept whatever you get because maybe God is testing you know by giving you a hard time.So don't lose your balance and keep on moving.
I don't know about all these jobs stuff but I am sure you would find one soon.So just smile and have faith.Good luck:)

if you are desperate, i would say get a job that you are over qualified for. like my mom got layed off from a factory so she went back to school for a pharmacist...and no one would hire her with no experience...so she got a job at Wal Mart being a stocker. If my 50 year old mom can do it, anyone can
