I feel the EXACT same way (I'm 0/9), so I just wanted to tell you that you're not alone. I think we just have to keep a positive attitude and keep applying. Financially it is hard. I'm so frustrated by places interviewing hundreds of people for a few spots, but it's not like we can pass up interviews just because the odds are bad. Keep your head up!!
I graduated in 2012 and posted a lot in the PD gunner forum back then. I went to law school to be a PD and did multiple internships, clinic, etc., but I ended up unemployed at graduation. I felt exactly the same way after doing so many interviews and not getting anything. I kept applying until months later, when I was about to run out of resources and was on the verge of giving up, I finally got hired to be a PD.
It's a frustrating process, but you've got to just keep going. Have confidence in yourself and the work you've done to this point. Do what you have to do to get by financially but don't give up on your goal of becoming a PD. My situation is proof that things can work out in the end even when it seems hopeless.
Good luck everyone!
congrats man, I'm glad it worked out
