Hey!
I'm currently just finishing my MA degree and I've been applying for jobs. I've had a few interviews so far but the feedback I've had so far is that I give as close to perfect interviews as possible and they love me but they still won't give me a job.

I'm not really sure what to do in interviews to make them give me the job. Any advice?

What type of roles are you interviewing for?

It might be that they just have more experience in which case I'd say that there's not much you can do except keep trying.

Yeah I can totally imagine that. On the positive side, you interview well

I'm not sure how libraries work really. Is your MA a Librarianship?

Does MA mean master degree?
Why do you study that profession?
But I think you may find jobs on Customer Manager etc

Yes, MA is a Masters degree!
Studied it because I felt like it's a good career choice for me
Not really sure if I'd want a job in Customer Management but I will have a look into it!

Yep, at some point it becomes blindingly obvious that they're hiring candidates with better experience - something you can't fix instantly.

It ****ing sucks.

It really does. I feel like it's a catch 22 - I need a job to get more experience but need more experience to get a job!

I heard some Chinese girl students also study it.
I was confused if it`s useful, but most of them find a job at library of univeristy
