I need advice, if possible, on searching for a job. I've been out of work for more than a year. I worked clerical in healthcare for over 15 years. For at least 12 of those years, I worked part time. I was laid off from a job 15 months ago due to funding cuts in the research study I was working for.
After looking for part time work, and getting nowhere (probably because there are 3 colleges here and many students looking for part time work), I've decided to look for full time work. Out of what seems like millions of applications/resumes I've sent out since December, I've interviewed for exactly 3 positions. Of those three, I've not been offered a job. What can I do? I've been told I interviewed well. I have good references, even a former department head. So what can I do to land a job? Any suggestions? I'm so frustrated.

Thank you ladies. I've done some of the things you suggested, but I will keep the rest in mind as well. I'm just getting so discouraged.
