I graduated with a STEM degree but sucked at networking with people thanks to my 0 social skills. Now I'm just applying online but getting insta rejected everytime. What can I do other than kill myself?

you are on a same boat with about few million others

Get back in touch with your university, maybe find a part time internship while taking some grad classes, and try to get them to take you on full time.

That's what I did

What's your degree? Where you from?
I was in a similar boat, had personal issues in school that really fucked me up. Took about a year until I dug my way into a stable fun job. It's not research but it's a start

Show me your resume.

If you're socially stunted in real life it probably shows up in your resume as well. You can hide it but it will take practice.

Stop it John. We all love you.

It's not hopeless. Just keep trying. Eventually you will interview some place that isn't retarded. Worse comes to worse, take a civil service test for state government.

Source: I had no opportunities to network in college. Interviewed for 9 months until I found a contracting job and another 4 months until I found a permanent job with the state.

I think if you actually have to try to find a job, you appreciate it a little more when you do. I could always tell the people who'd simply been handed a job; they put in the least effort, produced the lousiest code, and spent the most time screwing coworkers.

I have an engineering degree and have been unemployed for 3 years. STEM is literally useless. You need to get a CPA or MD degree to get a job. Have you applied to walmart? they pay 9.50 an hour

He fell for the STEM meme... Enjoy your NEET life bro.

I know that feel.
I ended up doing postgrad. Currently a PhD student.
It's fun. I can research pretty much whatever I want as long as it's useful.
Problem is you're expected to go to conferences and speak in front of hundreds of people, and you're expected to network.
Because of that I think about quitting a lot of the time and just becoming a programmer or something.
Your school should have a yearly careers fair where employers go to recruit new grads, I'd suggest checking that out if you're still unemployed next time it happens.
Maybe do your honours year of study until then.

Three YEARS? The fuck.

Im almost at three years but I have a biology degree. Normies tend to not hire autists.

Pretty sure that you are the one who is literally useless if you have been unemployed for 3 years.

>Biology degree

Literally the worst stem degree you could possibly get. Unless it's molecular bio. But if you fucking studied the life cycle of the canadian goose for 4 years then i don't know what you were expecting. The S in stem almost always requires grad school to get anywhere. Do a PhD or work as a lab tech for the rest of your life. How did you not plan for this? Anyone who goes into science knows how garbage job prospects are without grad school.

Not being able to find a job as an engineer for 3 years just means youre a bad engineer. Did you get your name on the blue pages or something?
