I'm in the job market too... as a web/interface/graphics designer. These things can take time and be frustrating. You may want to check out asktheheadhunter. Some articles there have caused me to completely re-think my resume.

Re: ot/ I NEED A JOB!

Join the club. I have been out of work for over a year now. And cant find a damn thing worth the pennies they want to pay. I thought i found a good deal a couple of months ago until they told be how much an hour. I asked the guy if he only wanted me to do one thing a day and sit down the rest of the 7.5 hours. Hopefully in the next month or so my uncle will come through where he works. Good luck

Re: ot/ I NEED A JOB!

I feel your pain. I was out of work for over 5 months. Now I'm back (second week). The bitch of it is that I'm working on a system I designed with my former company, but I'm on the payroll for the competition!!! It's contract work, and I probably wouldn't have done it before I was laid off, but it beats the hell out of unemployment!!!

Think about all the businesses that compete in your area, go to them directly and let them know that you can give them an edge over their competitors, and ask them what that's worth to them.
