(Books are great teachers. Remember, however, to read with an open mind, and do not necessarily believe everything you read. Take what feels right to you and discard the rest.)

Be aware also, that in the current job market, you may need to accept a job that you would have considered 'beneath' you, is less pay or not quite what you wanted.
To pay the bills, as long as you could tolerate the work, accept the job - and keep looking.
If feel you can find SOMETHING to do with your employment to like. It could be the pay check, the work itself, the friendly co-workers, the proximity to home...You get the idea.
You will not find a job you love more until you love the job you have now.
