need a job

Ok guys, I'm starting to get worried because I can't find a full-time job. I'm an Lpn and worked at a jail as my main job for about a year and was let go in April due to budget cuts. I have a part-time job at a nursing home, but its only a couple days a month. I was picking up some time there but they hired a new girl with more experience so it looks like no more extra hours. I may have messed my unemployment up a couple weeks ago because I picked up 3 days there and did'nt claim for the week because when I called they said not to. Now they say I should have claimed it, so I don't know if I'll get pay for the week. If I don't that will really mess up my bills and get me behind.

Anyway, I've applied to about all the nursing homes and hospitals in the area and I only had 2 interviews and neither has called me back. Unemployment is high in NW Ohio and even nurses are being laid off. Any ideas what to do? I thought about moving and even started applying in other cities, but that would be a big hassle as it would take some time to sell the house and look for another place to live in a town I know nothing about. Plus my house needs alot of work that I can't afford to do right now.

I got a call for an interview yesterday for a sales job for life insurance, but did'nt call yet as I don't think I'm suited for that type of job as I'm not a big talker. I even started to apply to assistant manager jobs and such as I have experience in office and have an accounting degree too, but never used it. I also have a cad degree, but have'nt done that it over 10 years. Factories just don't pay enough around here unless I could get in gm but you almost have to know somebody to get in there. Any advice guys? I need a job so I can get eventually get that Camaro 1LT...

Hey guys I finally got a call today from the nursing home and landed the job! I'm not looking forward to the 12 hour night shift, but hey its a job and they said overtime will be available. Now I just have to decide if I really want the Camaro or if I should go with something a little more affordable like the Gencoupe 3.8, 2009 Mustang, or the more practical WRX or RA. All of which have discounts available. I like the Camaro (although I have'nt driven the manual yet), but Chevy does'nt have any discounts or finance specials yet and I would like to get one of the above in the low-20's range if possible.
If I go with the Camaro, I think I would go with the 1LT base with the 19" wheels. It's still going to be in the low 25k range. I "might" be able to get the grad rebate (depends on how much a stickler they are on the degree), but it looks like that only saves about $800 or so. Now a low interest rate would make all the difference...
