Anyone else finding it difficult to find a job? Adults made it seem like getting a degree would solve all problems but lol? Even with a 2:1 in Business Management, companies still make it so difficult and long .

A degree is never a guarantee of a job. It's a pathway to the possibility of a decent career.

It is very difficult. The recruitment processes are incredibly long and can be drawn out for months.

Applications usually involve numerous online tests, long application forms, video interviews, assessment centres, in-person interviews etc

It is exhausting, frustrating.

Almost nothing guarantees a job. With the number of people leaving uni each year attaining a degree and the available jobs... Not to mention a lot of employers want people with experience. There are limitations of taking on graduates sadly. It is a struggle but you just need to fight on and continue applying. Do as much as you can in terms of volunteering, small exams ect to build your CV. Once you do get a job it'll be worth it and you'll have momentum.
