You have friends there, which is great!  Networking is key – he needs to talk to those friends and start talking himself up.  Some people feel uncomfortable about doing that, like it’s calling in favors or something.  It’s not.  Get him to talk to friends, acquaintances, anyone he knows and put the word out that he’s looking.

I just went through this with my DH. I know it’s hard! Seconding the PP about networking! That helps a lot. It really does feel sometimes it’s like who you know, not what. 🙁 He’s now doing something that’s completely out of his field and not all too thrilled about it but sometimes you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do!

He had trouble getting into the field of work he’s always done and wants because of that silly over qualified bullcrap. He took an interview quite a distance away and then got the we really like you but you’re over qualified for the position call. That. sucked. Wish they would have just saved the time and gas money it took to get an hour away.

I know the almost year that he was not working was hard on him, but boy was it hard on me too. We were living off of what I make, and a lot of the time I just felt like we were scraping by. 🙁

 

I know it’s rough, but hang in there, lady!

Maybe he should volunteer or get a minimum wage job(if he is not on unepolyment)just to get out of the house a few hours during the day? Keep his mind off things.

if you are at the end of your rope maybe you two should move somewhere else. Maybe he should apply for jobs out of the city you two are in. If you are seriously doubting your marriage then you should get into counseling.
