Even though I have a job, it isn’t in my field, so I guess you could call me an unemployed graduate. So about 3 years ago I graduated from university with a highly specialised degree, a Bachelor of Nanotechnology. When I was figuring out which degree to apply for no one told me to think about a degree that would secure me a good job, they just told me to go for what ever interests me.
So now 3 years later, I am an unemployed graduate, still looking for a job in my field. I make decent money as a bar tender, and to be honest I have only recently started looking for work in my field. But still, its a tough market out there man.
Straight after I finished my degree I went travelling for a bit, saw the world and all that. Took a break from life for a while. But now that I am trying to get back in again I am realising how difficult it really is. As an unemployed graduate, who has been out of the game for a few years, it has proven near on impossible to get a job. Like I said, I make good money bar tending, but it is definitely time to step it up a gear and progress with my career.
What I would really love is to hear from anyone else that is having similar problems? Am I the only one? What am I doing wrong here? As an unemployed graduate, the world certainly seems pretty tough right now.
