What you are about to read is my story, my story for employment – or lack of.
After recently graduating from University, I have had absolutely no hope in finding a career. I am stuck, I am honestly lost. I am left feeling hopeless, pathetic with low self-confidence. My emails are full of rejection letters and job applications which I rarely ever hear back from, I have tons of experience in my field but it is still a struggle? I’ve gotten to the point where I check my emails every few hours to hope it’s a reply back from a position in which I’ve applied for. I am constantly updating my resume and changing it, I am always trying so hard when I get job interviews but I am never given a chance. I litterally apply for 5-10 job positions every single day, and you get to that point where you litterally lose hope in developing a stable and rewarding career.
I’m only 22, but if you don’t have experience and if you don’t have something that the employer wants, they won’t hire you. They aren’t going to go out of their way to train you either, they just aren’t going to give you a chance,. I get to that point where I litterally feel helpless and that I’m not wanted. Do you know how that feels? Every job I have worked in so far, have said that I am the hardest worker that they have come across and yet, it is such a struggle to prove that to new employers on first impressions.
In all honestly, I believe it’s about the people you know, not about what you know. So now I am left to think that going to University in the first place was pointless, that my degree I chose to study was waste. Where does that leave me and how does that make me feel? Well I’ll tell you. It makes me feel like I have wasted a majority of my life so far on something that practically have no chance in. Do I want to risk it, and go back to study to learn more or do I just accept this fact and hope for the best? It has gotten to that point where I am honestly applying for any job, in any field. Does this make me desperate or just overly willing to start a career? You be the judge.
