I'm going to have to move back to England.

I think I'm going to have to move back to England. I've applied to maybe 100 jobs over the last 4 months and have, as yet, to get one interview. I must really suck at something I can't even notice to be that unsuccessful.

There have been 3 or 4 jobs that I've wanted so badly I could almost taste them. I re-wrote and polished those applications so much that I truly believed that they caught why I would be perfect for the job. And, well, I couldn't even get interviewed for those.

This doesn't mean I didn't try for the other applications, I did. It's just part of me suspected that if the potential employer didn't want me with them, I wouldn't have been so, well, stunned.

I swear blind I only need 2 or 3 interviews before I'll get a job in an area (the first one or two will act as ranging interviews so I can understand how they work), but I doubt I'll ever get that far here.

I know the theory is that I should broaden my job search, but I'm loathe to give up the 3.5yrs of my life and the $50,000 I just spent on my degrees to do something I don't want.
