hey guys and girls... I know I can't be the only one in thie predicament, but I just can't deal with this anymore.
When I met my wife I was making double her salary, great job with a global company and had everything together.... Fast forward 3 years, she is making a very good salary, I am unemployed and been on more job interviews in the past 2 years then I can count. Most of the time I get "overqualified" or some other reason. On top of my experience I have 2 degree's in economics and marketing...
On top of that my back is now a severe problem that will probably require surgery, and I am itching and breaking out in hives all the time. I just don't know how to cope with this anymore. What really kills me is the reverse racism going on in the US now adays. Roles I have applied for, have been filled with women and minorities (friends in the company) and I just heard the latest statistic that of all people laid off during this recesion 80% are men.
I just feel like giving up, putting on my paper cap and saying "may I take your order please"... it seems like now adays if your a white male with a good education and a vast amount of experience, its all your qualified for now.
sorry just venting, so stressed I don't even know what to do.
