    Losing unemployment benefits

    Unemployed for over a Year

    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    I have been looking for a job for  over a year now and have applied to many I occasionally get some  interviews I think Ive had over a dozen now, but most I never hear from  or get rejection letters from. I do not do well in interviews anyway as I  get nervous (as Ive heard that is a negative) and probably why I dont  get the job as I also never hear why I didnt get the job either other  than the usual "Found someone who better matches the qualifications."

    I  just wish I could get something but would really like a computer  support job as thats my career. I would rather have a job as Id rather  be busy at with work.

    I will have to be moving back with my  parents after August now since UI is completely done, luckly I have  someone I can fall back on. I just wish Congress would do more, but they  already have nice well paid jobs why help us?
