How to Get a Job...?
These things are things that I have done and have worked for me but may not necessarily work for you. Do your research see what works for you and what doesn't. It is all trial and error. Don't stop trying. It's not that you fall it's that you get back up again and you keep trying.
This is just a guide line. You can take more or less time on the things that I suggest. Each day is different, treat it as such. Take at least 1 hour a day to work on your job search. You can break it up during the day, why not you really have all day! Small amounts of time can make it seem not so daunting, but you do have to do something about your situation or else nothing will actually happen.
Consistency is key.

Get some drinks!
Get all chores out of the way

Once you have all the chores and everything out of the way, desecration are a lot less you can be more focused on the task at hand.
