Looking to give school/work/career advice to anyone who wants it. I think I've got things pretty figured out, so I'd like to help people find direction.
Right so I just graduated with a shitty IT degree from a school that taught me literally nothing practical the entire time.
All jobs that I apply to want me to know all this shit that I should have learned but obviously didn't.
I'm pretty much underqualified for everything and have no future prospects.
Probably going to kill myself if I can't find anything.
I'd rather be homeless than work a wageslave customer-facing job, and I'd rather kill myself than be homeless.
I have just graduated with a Bachelor of Business (Management) and Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology).
I have been applying for jobs for the past 3 months including: human resources, recruitment consultant, any business trainee position, any business graduate position. I am lucky to ever hear feedback, and the one interview i did get i didnt get the job because i wasnt enthusiastic enough (despite in a group interview with 10 others, i was one of the only 3 people that actually spoke/contributed)
do i just give up and go back to the pleb retail life?? ausfag here btw
To get into most parties you have to be in a frat or know someone in a frat really well. Try to join one with connections to sororities or it'll be a sausage fest. Every school has the autism frat.
You gotta think what jobs you're looking for, then keep applying. It's a tough economy. You just need persistence. Once you get that first job, you'll have experience for the next.
Yeah well I started just applying for Human Resources and Recruitment jobs, however I hardly ever even get feedback, I know what jobs I'm looking for. Do I just keep trying and be poor and mooch off my poor old grandparents who i am staying with?
I'm a University graduate who works minimum wage in a bar to support my own artistic projects. I've been offered a place on a masters program with a fairly well respected arts program (without funding, not a real concern given current earnings & savings) which would obviously focus more on academic work but would put me in a good position to move into a more viable carer path selling other peoples art.
So, take the safe money or pursue the dream?
Honestly, at my school there are no fraternities. There's just Chads that hang out. They just do what everyone else is doing, and it just so happens everyone is already doing what they're doing.
It honestly depends how dedicated you are to "the dream." If you're willing to give up everything to chase it, go for the risk! If not, that's definitely OK too. You can always be happy now and wait for the next opportunity that comes up.
If you haven't got a job in 2 weeks walk into a bar, ask to speak to a manager or a supervisor, bring a CV, tell them you want a job, that you're willing start from the bottom as a bar back or a kitchen porter and that you're willing to work a trial shift to prove yourself if needed. No point doing it during the deadest week of the year though.
Shit is the easiest job in the world, you mop up, clean glasses and restock the bar. You're not expected to talk to customers and when you're ready they'll train you on the bar. Also, your city should have a hospitality exchange on facebook where people post jobs all the time. These are a gift, none of the online tests. Just a good cover letter needed.
