what the heck am i supposed to do

I'm frustrated. I got another very familiar email today,

The position has been filled by another candidate. We will keep your resume on file and contact you if an appropriate position becomes available. We wish you the best in all your pursuits.

I'm starting to hate that email. I just don't know what to do anymore. I keep applying for the similar positions (the ones I feel qualified to do and have experience in), and after one or two rounds of interviews, they pick someone else. I don't feel I am applying for positions that I couldn't handle, so I'm not sure what to change about my approach in this process.

Maybe I can join the hundreds of other people "riding out the economy" by going to grad school. It's such a big investment, I feel I would need to know for sure that "this is what I'm supposed to do in life." I just don't feel that confident about a particular field of study. Also, I think the wave they thought would be gone in a couple years has turned into a tsunami that goes on and on and on and...you get the idea.

Let's be honest...isn't there a field of study called "I just don't want to work?" That's the lazy Gen Y part of me talking.

Don't get me wrong, I'm so grateful to have a job right now, but I think my skills would better be used somewhere else.

I know I need to be better about listening to God's calling for my life. I think I am just frustrated today. Tomorrow is a new day though ~
