If you are applying for jobs in the skinny end of the job list, you may need to consider diversifying. Keep applying for your dream job, and make sure you are putting your best foot forward. Submit a professional Resume, and consider ways of up-selling yourself e.g. using Linkedin, create a blog, etc… At the same time think about a sideways career step by getting skills that will get you work and pay in the meantime e.g. Hospitality, Transport (uber and/or deliveries are booming atm).
