Still unemployed after nearly a year graduating!! watch


    (Original post by Botticello)
    I graduated nearly 2 years ago, and have not had a steady job since. I had morbid depression throughout 2012 and barely applied because I just couldnt face it. I tried harder in 2013 but to little avail, and yes it is infuriating. This economic climate is improving so we will get there eventually. People who always have a job make me sick ;D The worst was sitting through this DIRE employment course full of disgusting cretins who could barely write their own names for nothing.
    I can't face another year.. :|

    What do you want to do?

    Don't want to be the bearer of bad news but it took me 3 years to get a full time job!!

    Having a degree these days means absolutely bugger all! It is the SKILLS organisations/businesses are more interested in; if you haven't got that, tough!

    My advice, get out there, try and gain some experience via volunteering (if you can afford to), and improve your skills and CV.

Do you think parents should charge rent?
