Do you guys think hiring firms like Aerotek will work? I keep hearing they dont. I've applied to over ~540 jobs by now
Blame college loans and grade inflation.
Since the fact that you graduated, the fact that you entered college, and got "good" grades no longer has any bearing on your actual skills, jobs are now offered to people who have the more reliable indicators of quality and success (attractive white men) and people who they are legally required to hire (genderfluid african americans).
Too bad, so sad.
I remember how desperate I was when I was looking for a first proper job when I had almost no experience
fuck, it's been barely a year and now not a week goes by without some headhunter giving me a job offer. the first step is by far the hardest.
why cant he apply to private? Is OP's creds no good enough? If so I'm totally fucked
hahah, you should just have done what I did and get a relative to hire you when you graduated, yeah my first job wasn't great and I only got paid like $45k but after a few years of experience I was getting so many job offers I had to get a new phone number and email to deal with the spam, the key is experience, all the companies out there want people with on the job experience, if you don't have that they won't even look at you.
>not doing unpaid intern experience
>decides to be unemployed for 3 years out of spite
why should i help you newfucks? some of you are pretty rude and deserve to suffer more.
Yes, employment agencies can help you get a job. Look around google and find some with HQ in or near the city you live in that specialize in your fields.
They'll help you build a resume, coach you for an interview, etc.
I'm in the same boat OP
cept I wasn't even able to get an internship
Halfway through i wanted to drop out because of my bad grades and being unable to secure an internship but was told to keep going because even as a c student i had opportunities.
a year later after I graduated still no luck, I feel they were just lying jackals who just wanted to keep me there for the tuition money.
fuck the world
>hahah, you should just have done what I did and get a relative to hire you when you graduated
I can't really choose what relatives to have
none of them or HR managers
so what the fuck are you on about?
OP here. I know your pain. Thank god I've been on 4chan for years because you get some killer advice from places like /sci/ which in hindsight is where i should have posted this.
All the "advice" from normalfags was to "do internships and research". That was it. No one told me I needed to make people like me or that I had to pull strings.
What'd you major in?
not a jew, my dad just thought the name sounded cool
>graduated with psychology degree
>sat around until after xmas holidays
>moved halfway across the US
>applied for shit
>half a dozen interviews
>job within a month of graduating
But if it makes you feel better, everything I got was literally in the "I shoulda just started working at mcdonalds as a kid" range. Fucking $12/hr right now, its shit pay. But experience I guess, hopefully I can get something working with the corrupt ass state in another year and then REALLY do nothing and get pension for life. Ah corrupt governments, not bad when you're on the receiving end I guess.
But no seriously, I had a friend like OP, graduated with a chem degree, spent a year before they got a decent job. But after that it paid off in spades for her. So dont lose hope OP.
I did math and physics and developed coding skills. Hell I even got a certification but apparently even that isnt worth shit
I guess high school goes on forever where only cool people benefit
>No one told me I needed to make people like me or that I had to pull strings.
My father like me has no social skills and managed to get by on pure talent and hard work alone. Problem is I'm not as smart as him nor am I as hard a worker as him so I can't do what he did.
A society where people who work hard and have skills benefit would be better, rather than one where people who are simply manipulative socially get everything.
I think that's what communism attempts to solve, but they do it all wrong
How ya doing Ari? You fucked candice yet or did she leave you for a white guy?
When you gonna start your foot video site again?
its to the point where i look at the job page of a company for half an hour and wonder if
a) my app is even looked at and it isnt filler for the company to seem like they have openings
b) I could ever compete with people getting the jobs
c) if the listings are for people who were guaranteed a position already in person by someone in the company who likes them and the apps are documented to make it official
>c) if the listings are for people who were guaranteed a position already in person by someone in the company who likes them and the apps are documented to make it official
pretty much this
all application are for is to keep a list of resumes on hand in case they have a job opening and for one reason or another don't personally know who to fill
that however isn't very common.
All college degrees are memes to be honest. Even getting a graduate degree isn't a guarantee for stable employment. Too many jobs have been outsourced. Before it was just blue collar work but now IT and other highly technical STEM jobs are going overseas. If that's not bad enough there's lots of H1-B visa holders taking all of the prized silicon valley jobs.
The only industry that's booming nowadays is the college industry, conning naive little saps into thinking they could have a middle class lifestyle if they could just get another degree, certification, MBA, etc. By the time you manage to get the degree the job market could be a completely different place, rendering it useless.
In this economy you have to hustle for any piece of scrap you can find. Any crap job that pays well below your pay grade you have to hang onto for dear life. Chances are there's a guy with much better qualifications to take your place the second you leave.
be a social butterfly, that is pretty much all it amounts to. Work hard to get good grades , but if you had to choose between a good exam score or a connection, the connection is always the best choice.
Wait wait wait wait wait
How can chads be against suicide and then tell someone to go out in a blaze of glory at 15-18 years old just to "prove themselves" as a man. HelI never fought back against my bullies and I still get mad pussy. I dont give two shits about instincts
and you think that's long enough to be whining?
go panhandle outside your university.
ask for change to the students and told them your story, they probably will give you a buck or two
work as burger flipper. no need to say you are a "university graduated with honors" because they will not hire you for being a pretentious overqualified waste of life
>and you think that's long enough to be whining?
actually it is, I once read an article that interviewed job hiring managers that said for a professional job being unemployed for more than 5 months is as bad as having criminal conviction on your record.
Post yfw people don't actually HAVE to work and there are more than enough resources on the planet for everyone to live comfortably if not luxuriously, but capitalists continue to perpetuate the work for a living meme so that they can remain in control of the Geosociopolitical climate
