    Let me just say going to college.
    Does NOT guarantee you a job anywhere.
    It's incredibly difficult even getting a $5.15/hr mcdonalds job.
    Nobody wants to take you for the shit jobs, because they prefer the mexicans or 15 yr olds. Instead of the college educated person...

    As for the other jobs, well there are none..

    those places don't want to hire you because they know as soon as you find a 'real' job...you're outta there.

    you could always get one of those 'temp' jobs in the meantime.

    good luck.

    I was talking to a girl the other day who graduated from college. She seemed very intelligent and she got some kind of prestigious degree; I don't remember the name. But her job was showing people apartments. Not a landlord, not a real estate agent, or even a property manager. She was just like a secretary that tried to talk people into moving in. The job didn't fit what she worked hard in school for. Now I'm kinda worried if I get out of college if that degree will mean anything.

    When my parents were growing up, they said it was common for people to just get out with a high school diploma and still live the "American dream" -- A steady well-paying job, a house with a lawn, a wife (that didn't have to work), a car, 2 kids, and a pet. Nowadays you got motherfuckers getting out with Master degrees in Quantum Physics and working a job at K-Mart and a second job driving taxi's , and the wife is working 2 jobs, one as a bus driver and the other watching the loud-ass kids at the day care center... and still struggling to make ends meet in their 1 bedroom apartment. It's sad...

    Didn't your school offer any job placement programs? My school does, I know of a bunch of people that got big money jobs and living the good life.....Do you just have a basic college degree?

    my college career services kicked ass, i currently have a B.S. in business administration.

    my first job out of college was 50K starting salary with a 3K bonus every quarter and stock options.

    i got laid off from that and found another job through a head hunter 2 months later. i'm still here now.

    the program i'm about to start in the fall has almost 100% job placement upon graduation. these are very important stats to look at when you are applying to schools.
