I have been filling out lots of job applications, but seem to be getting nowhere. Half the places I applied to aren't hiring, and I haven't heard from the rest. The applications can sometimes be complicated, and at times I can't even fill out what is required. Like when I got to the point where it asked for references, I don't really know anyone and can't think of a single person who would vouch for me, so then I got discouraged. I will keep applying for any and all jobs in my area, but it doesn't seem promising so far. I don't even know if I should go to college first, to have more education for a job, or to get a job first so I can actually afford college. Or maybe work and college at the same time, though that would be a challenge with my anxiety, depression and etc. and might get a bit overwhelming. So how do I find ways to stay motivated and not be too hard on myself when it seems like I just keep going back to square one?
