Sounds as though alot of folks are going through some tough times out there... Wanted to give you another option, maybe someone will get lucky! try www.colorado.gov go to the employment link - then to state gov. employment opportunities There are new postings every week for all types of employment, also a link to download application forms. It may take some time to get your foot in the door, as some positions require written tests and oral boards (my entire process was about 6 months..but most are much less than that) Good Luck! Anyone can PM me, I will be happy to try to help you out.
