College Graduate...Unemployed...Taking A New Turn!

So this recession is a KILLER. No seriously! People have committed suicide...& killed their family because life took an unexpected turn (I read this sometime last year)...Well God bless them, I'm nowhere near that situation. But I know the feeling of not financially being where you want to be, or think you should be etc.

I've worked hard & LONG for my degree only to wait...wait..& wait for a job opening. Oh & apply, but don't get a call back...oh & if you get that call back, get an interview but don't get the job ::face in palm:: I can't take it!!!!

Okay, well anyways...I'm thinking about taking up a new hobby...and maybe interning (sad face) somewhere just to add things to my resume. I mean why not? If any time is better why not now? The big move out of state doesn't look like it'll happen anytime soon, nor that dream job. So, I have to do what I gotta do.

But either way I'm restricted. The area I live in isn't equipped for individuals like me. Ambitious, creative, young, motivated individuals. There aren't many opportunities here. I would have to drive 30mins (the least) to get my foot in a door out of 15...smh. God is definitely by my side through this long haul. I graduated in Dec 2010 & I have yet to get anywhere. So lame.

I want to do something creative. Maybe become a mini-entrepreneur or teach a class of some sort (workshop). I haven't gotten far as to WHAT I want this to be. So, I'm going back to the drawing board & see where that leads me. I def. have a side hustle that's, but it's not enough to feel comfortable.

Anywho...any other suggestions, ideas out there?


  1. It's just getting harder and harder to get a job now.. there are so many graduates out there and so few jobs and this economic crisis is not helping.. sorry i have no suggestion. I really hope it gets better for you :)

  2. It is very difficult right now. I'm hoping something great comes around. Thanks :)

  3. I was in the same boat as you when I finished undergrad. I ended up having to go to grad school to get settled in a career I wanted. I know it may not be what you want but volunteer, intern, network...find someone that is doing what you want to become and ask if they can in some way mentor you. The worst thing that can happen is they say no. In the mean time get a job waitressing part time so that you're still making me a lot of recent college grads had to go the waitress route

  4. That's the thing. Where I live there aren't many places like that...there aren't many opportunities. I'm actually looking into different jobs that I would normally shine away from so we'll see how that goes.
    I've been networking, looking for a mentor & seeking volunteer positions that could possible help, but I haven't looked into interning.
