I got my bachelor's degree 4 years ago, but I haven't found a job with my qualification. I applied for thousands of jobs and made a lot of effort, but was unsuccessful. That I have to do?

Keep going. Look for related fields. Think transferable skills.

I have two Batchelor-level honors degrees - in Performing Arts (music major) and Environmental Science, and I am now 50 years old.

Have I still had a job that directly used the skills and knowledge that I learned as part of any of those degrees?

No.

Sometimes you have to give up the dream and come to terms with reality - some degrees are just not good for finding jobs related to them, usually because the number of graduates exceeds the jobs available by an order of magnitude.

No.

Sometimes you have to give up the dream and come to terms with reality - some degrees are just not good for finding jobs related to them, usually because the number of graduates exceeds the jobs available by an order of magnitude.

In the performing arts bachelor's degree, we all caught on about halfway through the sophomore year. Sure there are jobs as a musician. But the students who end up getting those jobs are the ones who were in music conservatories, who were more talented and had been practicing for 25 hours a day for 20 years when they were 18. The best that almost all of us could. His hope was to play second violin (literally) in a second-rate orchestra, be a working teacher, or play shitty background music in fancy restaurants.

And these days I work in the travel industry, specializing in airline relationship management and ticketing processes.

Hang on, the real world doesn't throw punches.

It does not say what its title is on. If it takes you 4 years to find a job, it makes me think that the degree is a useless Liberal Arts degree or / and your employment standards are too narrow and high.

I have a business degree, but I really wish they told me early that it would just lead you to running a local retail location. It took me months to get the management training and that was a 2 year job of doing every dirty job that I would then have to manage.

4 years searching? You need to take ANY job in an industry location where you want to be. Mopping floors but in college? Better do it. GRAM

4 years searching? You need to take ANY job in an industry location where you want to be. Mopping floors but in college? Better do it. Reach out to people who know how to access what you want and network.

All you can do is keep looking for work. You may need to rethink your career path and go back to school. Also take this opportunity to talk to as many young people as you can. Inform them of what happened to you. Educate them to choose their title wisely. Pick a field that has job opportunities and pays them enough to pay off any student loans they may need.

I went to nursing school and graduated when I was 35 years old. I chose nursing because I could go to a town of 50,000 inhabitants and find work. Nursing pays a living wage.

College graduates cost ten cents a dozen. In "normal" times 40% of graduates end up underemployed. If you couldn't find a suitable job before the pandemic, your chances are slim now.

The time is past when you should have been thinking of a Plan B.

Apply to officer candidate school.

Apply to become a police or firefighter officer.

Go back to school and earn a marketable associate's degree.

You need to find out why your apps are failing and address it specifically.

How can you tell why your applications are crashing? Consult a professional service that offers coaching for resumes and interviews.

Do a web search for "resume and interview coach." Report what you find.

Try to find a professional resume writer to review your qualifications. Keep in mind that in times of pandemic, recruitment is relatively weak overall. If you still have contacts between your university professors, reach out and ask for their advice.

Take another job, any other job ... while you keep looking ... you should have done it almost 4 years ago. You can always leave once you find something in your field.

Perhaps counterintuitive, but have you ever considered that you wasted your money on a worthless title? If no one is hiring you, maybe you should think about retraining or changing careers?

He did not explain what field, or specialty, his bachelor's degree covered. For many people, it is distressing to know that there is little demand for the knowledge one has acquired in four years of study.

Since I was asked to respond, I am.

You are only 20 years old or you are 20 years old. but when you say no degree. or work. It is a cause for concern.

If you opted for a job, not having a regular degree will create a lot of problems for you until you create a solid experience for 5 to 6 years. (I guess you don't have a diploma).

So if I were you, I wouldn't even have the support of my family. I would start to find any job. It will be difficult at first, to lose pride and hope,… but that will make you a strong person and you will face the truth of the world soon compared to your friends. AND

So if I were you, I wouldn't even have the support of my family. I would start to find any job. It will be difficult at first, to lose pride and hope,… but that will make you a strong person and you will face the truth of the world soon compared to your friends. You will face this challenge until you change the way you think, the way you think / work. Once you overcome this challenge, little by little you will feel confident in what you are working on / investing time and energy.

If you don't want to get a degree, you have to do a lot of experimentation and keep doing it until you figure out your own way of doing things.

Here is a rough plan that can work.

19-20: introspection. and find out how you learn, reading or running or watching ... (you should do this if you have a deep desire to succeed and have a normal life (minimal) of having a job and owning a home)

20-21- Find a job that is useful to you and you should get it in the second half of your 20s.

22-24: You must have control over things at work and people must depend on you to carry out their work. (For this, you may need to work for 12/14/16 hours and eliminate all the non-productive things in your life).

24-28: Either you start your own business or excel at your job to some extent, whether you have formal education or not, it doesn't matter. Since not having a degree will be a constant obstacle if you apply for a job in a multinational or if the role of the title is important. You can work as a consultant.

I hope you have direction and steps to move from your current position.

You seem to be an average person, with no high marks in college and average qualities, like me, the best choice for a 9 to 6 job.

Please, for the love of God, don't force yourself on IT, God is giving you a chance to try something else by not giving you a job in IT.

I forced myself into IT from another environment, and after 5 years of it, I hate it from the bottom of my heart. Every day going to work kills me inside, words cannot explain the pain and agony I am in.

I feel like why did I get into this mess and now I can't find a way out.

I forced myself into IT from another environment, and after 5 years of it, I hate it from the bottom of my heart. Every day going to work kills me inside, words cannot explain the pain and agony I am in.

I feel like why did I get into this mess and now I can't find a way out.

Today is Sunday night and tomorrow is Monday, day to go to work, I cannot sleep because I am afraid to go to work because I know that I have no other option than to work quietly under pressure without complaining because I have the responsibility to support my family .

Even if I sleep, I am haunted by strange nightmares, usually never involving work, but usually by snakes and ghosts in my sleep.

The team on the ground in Israel or the USA creates the so-called user stories and assigns them to us poor Indians who barely have a few days to complete them, which means extending their working hours to an average of 10 hours per day.

They will force you to work shifts so that you can take their status calls in which they demoralize you and tell you that you are useless.

You will get all kinds of income and health problems because you are sitting for 10 hours a day in a chair.

Your neck, shoulders, back and legs will ache, do not forget about hemorrhoids because you sit for a long time, you will not have time to exercise, you will have a round belly, you will become depressed, high blood pressure will increase. See you soon.

Even after many years of work, your job will never be insured, you will always worry about when the company might evict you.

The good thing is doing your life and your loved ones a favor by not giving yourself a job in IT, appreciating it, and trying to do something good in your life instead of joining YOU.
