SIM graduate: I have been without a full time job for the past 2 years

I graduated from SIM in 2015. That was almost 2 years ago and I have since sent out thousands of job applications. In the end, I only received invitations to 4 interviews. Honestly I don't have high expectations. Merely asking for a starting pay of 2.2k per month; I am also most willing to work at SMEs. However a job is hard to come by, and truth is, I have been without a full time job for the past 2 years.

I have taken up a job stacking books as a part time librarian while I went around hunting for a job. I earned $3 an hour and barely took home 1k a month. I feel like a loser, always wondering if my life will be lived out in this pitiful state forever. Things look rather hopeless at this point in time... I feel that my future in this world is so dark. Now I really regretted not studying harder and thus ended up at SIM.

I wonder if there is anything I can do to get out of this dark hole... feeling so sad and cold. I am seriously considering enrolling into an institute of technical education (ITE) to pick up a practical skill or two...
