The Daily Thoughts Of The Unemployed Graduate

...Other than 'my life sucks'.
Okay sorry for the bleak opening. I ain't gonna sugar coat my current feelings because I am too drained to. I have applied for a zillion jobs over the past few weeks and I have heard NOTHING back. Not even a courtesy email to tell me my application and myself suck and they do not want to hire me. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK FOR? It gets to about 2pm every day and I just cry into a cup of tea about the disaster that is my graduate life. Go to university they said, do a degree they said, it will all be worth it they said, you'll find a job so easily they said. *slaps university in the face* How dare you lie to me! You took my money and you left me with nothing. Used and abused. 

After the success of my last 'my life sucks because I am unemployed and Leonardo Dicaprio doesn't love me' post I thought what better way to express my true hurt feelings then blogging. I mean, why else would I be blogging? So in honour of humpday confessions (my new favourite time of the week) here are the daily thoughts of the unemployed graduate.

Thought 1
Crap. I have no job.

Thought 2
I applied for my dream job last week and they never replied to me...

Thought 3
Is it me? Do they sit in their recruitment offices laughing at my applications?

Thought 4
No I am far to amazing to not be hired. I was put on this planet to do great things and I am just waiting to be discovered

Thought 5
If one more graduate recruitment agency tells me I can get a job by following their stupid steps I am going to KILL.

Thought 6
I am going to be in this boat forever?

Thought 7
Did I just hear my email notification?! Is someone emailing me a job offer?!!

Thought 8
Crap it's that recruitment agency trying to hassle me again. RUN FROM THE PHONE.

Thought 9
I hope no one asks me what I am doing today because the answers 'cry into a cup of tea whilst watching Desperate Housewives reruns' is not a cool answer

Thought 10
If I had a pound for every time someone asked me what my plans are now I have graduated I wouldn't actually have to apply for jobs because I'd be effing minted

Final thought
I'm doomed
.
I hope you enjoyed this snippet of my spiraling existence. Now excuse me but I have some job applications to be rejected from.

  1. I know it's probably wrong of me to say this, but, all of this made me chuckle. Not your pain and frustration.. but the way you typed them. I SWEAR!

    It's hard to get your foot in, It's happening across the board. You are NOT alone.
    When it happens, it will be the right position.

  8. In Feb 2013 I was laid off of my job and for 4 months I humped it to tons of job fairs and networking events. I sent TONS of resumes and nothing. I forund a job in 4 months after essentaily hustling the manager to hire me. Fast forward to a year later and I decided to look for a new position. I applied for 10 jobs and got 6 interviews, plus 2 interviews from recruiters who found me. The moral of the story is that something WILL break for you, just don't get discouraged! Utilize your network and make contacts with people in your field. It's strange to make contact with people you don't know but it will help in the long run, I promise.
