How it Feels to Job Hunt as a Recent Grad

You’ve just completed your college degree and you’re ready to take over the world!


You’ve heard that the job market isn’t so good, but you’re not worried at all.


First, you hunt for some entry level job postings online:


You quickly learn that entry level can actually mean 1-3 years experience.


But no worries! That’s what those college internships were for, right?


After finding a few decent job prospects, you get to work polishing up that resume:


Once your resume is up to par, it’s time to work on crafting the perfect cover letter. Let this company know just how thrilled you’d be to work there.


Once those are both done, it’s time to send out your applications!


 Now it’s just time to sit back and wait for the job offers to roll in.


Errr…Fast forward a few weeks. You’ve filled out a few more applications but still haven’t heard anything back.


So you hunt for more jobs:


Write more cover letters:


And send out more applications:


You start to feel bad for yourself.
