Getting a job post 2008 when the recession rolled out, has been the topic of conversation. For all of as college graduates who tried to enter the work force during these years, it has been extremely difficult.
Being proud of working so hard in school, many graduates believe they will get the job they deserve straight after they move their tassel to the left and throw their cap in the air.
You could have graduated manga-cum-laude, participated in 5 extra curricular activities, scored 2 internships and companies still would say you were “inexperienced.” The problem with the companies of today, is they do not always realize what kind of person they have if their resume does not say it all in one page.
Everyday I search for jobs I qualify for. Every. Day. It is a job within itself. You know what qualifications some jobs are looking for?
Someone once told me that they do not respect Generation Y (the Millennials), because before we are 30 we have had 14 jobs. Does anyone stop and think that we do not WANT to have had that many jobs by that age, but we are forced to since no one will hire us for jobs that will pay our bills, gain us experience and help us save for the future?
I really hope that I will not fall into that category of 30-somethings. For now, I will always look for a job that will be equally beneficial for their company and my life!
I want to work in event planning, social media marketing, marketing research, public relations, or anything that has to do with getting people involved! So if anyone reads this, hit me up and go to my “Living CV” on my personal website www.EveryoneInBetween.com
