After each appointment I rewarded myself with a good coffee or sandwich or a walk in the park. I scheduled one appointment per day, x3 per week, starting with those closest to me and working my way outward to other counties.
No investment in any appointment is a waste. I accidentally applied to a 'creative' firm without realizing that this was a descriptive term for a line of work outside my IT capabilities. They were an hour away, and were kind about explaining that they weren't clear how they could market my skills. However, they still spent a lot of time with me, and I couldn't understand why they didn't just tell me to go. Within a month, they turned out to be the firm that placed me with a firm about 10 minutes from my home, in an art department that was starting to bring their work in house rather than outsource it. I started as a clerk, but would later negotiate a senior role in their image database build in exchange for junioring in Photoshop and InDesign to learn masking, retouching and page layout for their advertising. Still there 10 years later and love my work.
Point is, you never know who you'll meet or what it will lead to.
Best of luck, and I hope you'll let us know how it goes.
