You are wasting your time sending out unsolicited CVs. Do you have any comprehension of how many are in the post at any given hour ?
We occasionally get them at our office and they go straight into the shredder.
I have never met *anyone* who ever got a job this way. You're far better off going to an agency. They are pimps of course and take a cut of your wages but it's in their interest to find work for you.
Good luck to you. It sounds like you're trying hard.
Jobneeded67 didn't actually say that he'd sent these 'unsolicited'. I've sent out over 100 in answer to job adverts and have only had around 10 responses, so I understand why he's feeling so down hearted.
You don't give much hope to people looking for work by saying that anybody who's taken the initiative to send an unsolicited CV is wasting their time as they go unread, straight to the shredder.
I sincerely hope that you never find yourself out of work, it'd be worse for you because you obviously know first hand how short sighted and high handed some employers can be.
