Was a caregiver to my 102 year old aunt for five and a half years before she passed away in February.

Been trying to get back into the work force and applying to many positions. I am not fussy. Only been on four interviews so far. I am 54 so my age may be against me too. I have been in a market research career most of my life. I blame outsourcing jobs to other countries that has not helped our economy. It is simple as that.

I've been out of work since being laid off back in Sept. 2009.
I've applied for 150 jobs this year alone, got one interview. It used to be you would get letter or some kind of correspondence one way or the other. Nowadays? Nothing. You send your resume and thats it. 99.9% of the time not a word of acknowledgment. Are these companies just teasing us with "pretend job vacancies" just to see how many desperate people there are out there? Reading the hobbies and interest sections for their own amusement? I sometimes feel my self worth is being molested by these guys. I may as well ask the New York Times to print my personal details and history and save time.
