I lack the focus I need to really look hard for a job. I BADLY want one and have always found work both easy and enjoyable even when for others it obviously isn't. I am bad with time sometimes but just need to work a pattern and I learn it. What I really need is WORK. I graduated a well known HVAC/R school with a good reputation and high placement rates. 71% from my class already were helped to get placements. I NEED the work and I AM a great worker I love moving and doing and any ideas on how to get over things like anxiety or tips on how to search or better make use of job placement at my school? Anything at all really. I want to be on my own and independent. I want to move out west in a year or so and to do that I need money and some experience in my field to better help my job search.

Don't just rely on your school's job placement office. Try your area city, county, and state governments. They always have HVAC crews. Also, try your state and local employment agency listings. Since you're open to relocation, there's no harm in trying in desired areas out-of-state, especially if anyone can assist you with relacation costs.

Those are good ideas thanks! Well I don't really have anyone willing to help with the costs of moving across the country, I always assumed it would be my paying it. It would be nice to have a job there when I go though. I expected to be unemployed while I lived off some savings and did a second job search. Maybe working for the city would be nice.
