If there is one thing I’ve learned in my life so far, it’s to not give up hope.
No matter how stressful things become. No matter how negative things may seem. Not even if everything seems to be going wrong.
It’s something I struggle to work on daily as I get frustrated looking for a job. I know I am not alone — as many people in my graduating class are in the same boat… but it does not make it any less frustrating! What’s the point of the degree if it is not helping me get a job? Did I waste all that time and effort AND MONEY?!
It’s been almost a year since I graduated (May 2010), and if someone told me a few years ago how difficult it would be to get a job even with a degree, I am not sure if I would have believed them.
Naive of me? Maybe. But it doesn’t change the reality of things.
But hope? I refuse to give up. And as I have pretty much every day for over a year — the first thing I do daily is look and apply for jobs. Tomorrow will be no different.
P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
