Even doing contract you can still go for interview. I just apply for 2 or 3 months contract job, and take half day off on days I have interview. I also try to schedule the interviews into one single day where possible.

Have been jobless since July. Gave up my $3K salary per month after working for more than 6 years. Now still can't find a job after getting my part-time degree. Sent out countless resume. Only got a few interviews. Was offered a $2K job but I rejected it.

I applied for admin, marketing but no decent offers despite having a part-time degree. The best offer was $2,300. Was looking for about $2,500.

Take it. It is a pretty good offer. Since it is an MNC, there are also prospects for further career advancement.

I have a job and am paid well. But I practially have nothing much to do. I felt useless at times. I am not sure if I should give it up and find something that is more fulfilling than hanging around and looking forward to the pay day every month.

Drop that crazy idea. Be contented that you are paid well. Seek happiness outside of work -- get a hobby, make friends, volunteer.
