I repeat what the others have said. Keep your enthusiasm. There is nothing that will take you further. The only people who get what they want out of life are those who go out and grab it. Call the employer every now and again, not so much as to be a pest, but to let him/her know you really want to work there. That will impress them. Also, setting your sights higher may get you a better position. Don't seel yourself short. If you have skills, don't settle for just any job. Sell yourself as the cook they can't do without, the cook who can tailor his skills to what the company needs.
Keep tying and you will succeed.
