The Job Hunt & Features

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 20, 2007, 4:09 PM


Who knew that finding a job would be so difficult?  I went to college.  I suffered through all those classes I didn't want to take but had to.  I put in my time.  I ate all my vegetables and now I deserve dessert.  Come on someone, hire me dang it!

Ok, I know that life rarely works like that, but wouldn't it be nice?  I actually do have an interview with a company this week, for which I'm grateful.  Plus I just paid for a distribution service, so that should increase my chances a bit.  I hope...

Ah that sucks... My sister and her boyfriend also had to search for a long time to find a proper job after university. It's getting harder and harder here in Germany, there's a whole generation in "precarious jobs". Is the situation for job starters in the US going the same way? I'll cross my fingers and press my thumbs for you to find a job. Hope that interview this week went well! :]

Thanks! It seems to be harder to find a good job out of college with only a BS now, but I don't know if that's totally true. It's just that most places want a couple of years of experience, which seem impossible to get because no one will hire with it. A very strange paradox in the world these days. So once I convince someone to give me a couple of years of experience, then I'll be good and can find a job :D

Yea, that really sucks... employers want like a person with a master diploma and a PhD, five years of experience, and below the age of 30. And school takes 13 years in Germany until you are ready to go to university - so how are you going to fit all of that into your CV? =P

I wish I knew how. It seems kind of ridiculous doesn't it.

Good luck on your interview(s), dude. I, too, know the pain of the post-college job hunt, but it does eventually end, so at least you've got that to look forward to.

Thank you! I'm not really sure what to expect with the interview because I'm not sure what the company does. So it will be interesting for sure.

lol... I had an interview like that......

The first question was "How comfortable are you modeling and selling our product?"

Yea... Long story short, they sold bondage equipment and accessories.... I declined.

Haha! That is an awkward interview! Mine shouldn't be that bad. At least I know they are an engineering company.
