I did the internships. I did the study abroad. I did the clubs. Why is it still not enough?
I have been searching all the career sites, Google, Indeed, LinkedIn, all of them! And yet I still do not seem to have the experience needed for an entry level job! How is that possible?
I read an article that said the job requirements were introduced during the recession when employers had to weed out most candidates because of the surplus of applicants. The article said companies are now choosing to throw out their requirements due to low unemployment numbers. Well come on Tampa Bay! Throw away those job requirements for entry level jobs!
Maybe I’m being too picky because I know I am more than the jobs that only require a high school diploma. And I want a job with benefits. And make enough to afford that cute little bunny of mine. But at the same time I don’t want to sell myself short.
There has got to be other recent graduates out there feeling the exact same way as me. And I know we’ll all get through this confusing time together.
