How long did it take you to find your first job after finishing your degree?

I got an interview right after graduating and was offered a job. It was just before what would normally be the Christmas / New Years break for my University. I told them that I had vacation plans and that they agreed with me from the second week of January. I realized later that it was a horrible sales / event job, I had to be at work very early and in the field all day just to drive back to the office during the busy hour and then drive from I go home through the city for another hour. Things I wasn't fully aware of when I accepted, I think I was very excited to be offered a job that I didn't consider.

I got an interview right after graduating and was offered a job. It was just before what would normally be the Christmas / New Years break for my University. I told them that I had vacation plans and that they agreed with me from the second week of January. I realized later that it was a horrible sales / event job, I had to be at work very early and in the field all day just to drive back to the office during the busy hour and then drive from I go home through the city for another hour. Things that I was not fully aware of when I accepted, I think I was very excited to be offered a job that did not consider everything.

It was horrible. I only stayed there for a week or two before deciding it wasn't for me.

After multiple interviews, going to second interviews only to be told they have chosen a different candidate or they just didn't respond to me ... I got a great job the following March.

The interview was on a Wednesday, offer on Friday, the first day the following Monday. I have been advancing in the company since then.

I interviewed for jobs outside of my company but found nothing worth leaving for (except for that job I quit and was there a week before calling my old boss saying I would accept his offer ... he let me know that he would last a maximum of 3 months before having to occupy the position).

Fortunately I was promoted regularly, my last promotion gave me 20% more salary. My manager has also been great at recognizing my accomplishments and I definitely feel appreciated.

What I mean is that just because you have a job right out of college doesn't mean you made it and finished. It's just the beginning of your workplace discovery. It's okay if it takes you a little longer to find a job if it turns out to be a great deal with longevity and allows you to develop greater skills. Basically, it took me about 3 months to find my job…. good for them to eventually find me (CareerBuilder.com).

Good luck!!

This was a long time ago, I'm already retired, and work times were much better (most years, not always) from the mid-1940s to the early 1970s, before it started to go downhill. Much more competitive today.

But they offered me a very good job that I turned down while I was studying my master's degree, I didn't want to work in the field of Medicine (not a doctor, a nurse, etc.). Then 2 1/2 months before I received my master's degree, I was offered a job in my field / specialization and had to get permission from the school to leave early without going through the final written exam and interview etc.

I was given and I left early

It turned in and I left early and just had to submit a written essay later.

So I got mine easily and quickly over 2 months before getting my MS in the early 70's.

It helps to make good connections both in school and in the area of ​​business that interests you before graduation.
