my life

Might be a first world problem,but…

I feel like a spoiled brat when I complain about this, but whatever … I’m very appreciative I was able to go to a decent University and continue my education. But:
I have a Bachelors degree that I’m not using yet.
Granted, I graduated 4 months ago so it’s not that long I’ve been in this dilemma. However, once I graduated I was on a serious job hunt but to no avail. This discouraged me greatly, although it doesn’t take much. I admit that I’m a rather impatient person and tend to give up easy when I don’t get my way instantly. (Working on that)
I guess I had this crazy idea that once I crossed that stage I would be a hot commodity! I had an irrational expectation it would be easy to land a decent job. I know now that is typically the case.
All the jobs I would like to do require a Masters degree, in which I do plan to get eventually. Many other available entry-level jobs seem very uninteresting and many times not even close to what I majored in.
Anyways, guess I got to stick this out and be open-minded in the type of jobs I can get now. Hopefully, this dry spell won’t last much longer.
Anyone have any advice or been through the same situation? I’d love to hear!

    Definitely been there! Took me four months to find a job. If you don’t already have one, create a LinkedIn profile!! You’d be amazed at how heavily recruiters rely on LinkedIn to find candidates. Good luck on your job hunt!
