Are you seriously using this same tired excuse?
I know the economy isn't in great shape, but fucking Albertson's still needs fucking cashiers. You're not going for middle management jobs that disappear during recessions, you're looking for McDonalds or Taco Bell.
Just fucking go out tomorrow drive around all day and stop at any retail establishment int he area you go by. Ask trhem if they're hiring.
Repeat until sundown.
Do the same thing the next day, and the day after that. I assure you you will have a job within a week if you do it and don't half ass it.
Unless you're totally incompetent or have serious self esteem issues it will work.
