If you can't get a job and you've tried hard to, does that mean you're not supposed to work?

    NO! It means you haven't looked in the right places or that you should wait a week and start over. Something will open up soon.

    Keep trying and good luck!

    work is not a gimme. in our country it's where the rubber meets the road. you sound a little new to the whole experience. perhaps you live in a region where the economy and job opportunities are limited, but probably you are just experiencing the same challenges all of us have gone through that have been working for quite some time now. if you can begin to imagine what it must be like for someone to run a for profit business, and then put yourself in their shoes long enough to guess what employee qualities they are probably looking for (that will hopefully become an essential part of their operations) then you would begin to understand how to present yourself, and yes 'sell' yourself and your stronger qualities, on your resume and in the interview process. you need to try to be self aware that way. know what you think you are good at and at the same time be interested in the chance to work with more experienced coworkers who can show you even more. entry level jobs (if that's what you're going for to begin with) can be a cattle call. try to relax, walk in and let the receptionist know you have an appointment. i promise it gets easier over time. and the only way it gets easier is to put one foot in front of the other and (try to look forward to) see what happens. best of luck!

    No, it means your definition of trying hard is not the same as others. You are suppose to work, it's what keeps us emotional stable.

    Maybe you should take the hint and start your own business. It's a chance to do something you know you're good at and earn a living for it.

    No. It means you are a lazy slob that spends too much time on the internet.

    No. Are you trying to get one that matches your skill sets and education? You would have to be more specific.
