Ha !!! All I did was put myself into deeper and deeper debt by using my credit cards to ASSIST me in looking for employment. August will be 4 years since I've had a job. Four years folks. And I've applied to so many jobs I lost count. Now, I don't bother any longer. Unless I can speak with foreign accent or something, I am not getting hired.
