Why is it so hard to find a job in this &;#*$ field??

Darin Tietgen

I know I'm not lazy and unmotivated... I'm creative, have experience in the planning field, and numerous job experiences and real-life experiences to fill three resume's, but I can't latch on to a company in the field for the life of me. I try to be aggressive and try to sell myself as much as I can (within reason), but I've yet to get any good leads into finding a job. I graduated from a very good Geography program at UCSB, and have had architecture classes to boot. I'm willing to move anywhere in the United States, and I'm EAGER! Does anyone have ANY suggestions at all? (or a job offer? :)
