Now I wrote this post while I was job hunting, over a year ago, and for some reason forgot to post it.
So I am posting it now. Since then I currently work at three jobs, all ones I am very happy to be at. But prior to that, it was a long, hard, rejection-filled process,
So most think that after graduation they will get a job right away. They studied hard, worked hard, interned, etc.
But that’s not how it is. Finding a job is hard out there.
When I was looking almost everything either wanted me to give my time for free or have ten years experience. I guess I should have started working as a preteen. Oh wait, that’s illegal.
I mean have you ever seen The Secret of My Success starring Michael J. Fox? That movie speaks to me like no other.
When he starts trying to get a job, no one will hire him for his age. Too short, too young, etc.
It can be annoying. Real annoying.
But one day you will find something that uses your particular skill set.
No I’m not talking about that.
It might not be what you were expecting. It might not be what you thought you would do. But you keep hunting and you will find someone something.
Hope you enjoyed that blast from the past Yep it a lot of nos, but then I finally got a yes (3) and I’m very happy at all the places I work at now.
Good luck all you still searching out there!
