I think you hit the nail on the head.  I only have a BA and it's only in English. 

 

That has to be it.

 

 

 

You said you apply weekly, since October.....and as someone else pointed out, in an industry where hirings are most likely done internally.

 

You've gone 6 months, applying only once a week, where with maybe only 10% of those jobs external applicants are considered, let alone even looked at.

 

 

Try applying 100 times a week

I'm afraid you have a point. Applying to only one job a week is in reality simply a bit too less. You really have to be lucky that way.

No, I would say applying 50 times a week is plenty.

One more thing, to the OP:

 

What exactly do you think is non profit?

 

Forecast to make a profit, then the accounting team and others will just shift funds, budget more for expenses for next year ,likely for those on the board / at the top....also likely to avoid any tax or government penalties...attract somekind of government bonus.

 

All the little people do better one year become more efficient, those at the top just get bigger expense accounts, so they can remain "non profit"

 

 

Why does it have to be non profit?

 

Whatever metric it is, that determines success rate per case per employee per $ per hour. Why would a non profit be necessarily any better or worse than either government or a private sector one? To whichever immigrant in question, their metric would be whichever is going to help them the most

I know people who would apply to 10 + jobs a week, and were still searching for a year or more (and one in particular who in their 30's and had multiple graduate degrees).  It's daunting and discouraging.

Because I'm way too idealistic, way too passionate, way too individualistic to fit into the available cookie-cutter models currently in circulation.

this is keeping OP from getting a high paying job typing for a non-profit?

You've read the OPs previous forum posts and contributions haven't you? I mean if they're anything like they portray in real life I'm not surprised they cannot land a job either, just saying.
