Unfortunately, it is a difficult time to be job hunting.

I also was in a job I hated (had been for 2.5 years) and I started actively job searching in  March 2011 – trying to change fields and revert back to the research/lab work I’d done while in college.  I just finally got an offer last week but that took 9 months on active job searching and lots of failed interviews and applications to get to.

I applied directly via specific company websites.  I’d pull up companies I was interested in and then search the postings in their careers section.  I have always found much better luck with that than with job boards.

Good luck!

@ccb2011: Trust me.  I get the stress part too.  Between the stress of my current (hated) job, the stress of the difficult search, and the stress of the realization I was going to have to take close to a 50% pay cut to get back in to research led to me going on a anti-anxiety/depression med.  Things have been much more smooth (for both Darling Husband and me) since then.

I’m not one to just throw medications at things but if the stress and anxiety are really getting to him, might be something worth asking your doctor about.

It took my Fiance about a year and a half to find a job he really loves… his background is in teaching as well.  He had to take a part time position with a special needs department at an elementary school & work at a restaurant on evenings & football Sundays.  He made enough to pay his student loans but not enough for health insurance.  It did take a toll in that we didn’t have as much time together, but it all worked out & I admire his drive to be independent and take care of business 🙂  These are trying times, but hang in there!!
