I have been applying for jobs since July, both graduate jobs and retail/warehouse/admin jobs. No luck... just rejection after rejection. Many employers on indeed view my application then never get back to me, I have tried all other job sites too.

Obviously this is starting to get to me, most of my friends from uni have been offered jobs and then there's me... I have been applying for literally anything. I have updated my CV many times. Is anybody else the same?

Well we are in a global recession and with a pandemic going on its tough for the job market right now. Its estimated million people are unemployed right now so a lot of people are in the same boat.

You then gave a gap of 3/4 years what would you replace it with?

Depends what your degree is in.

Gender Studies leave it in.

Chemistry leave it out. 😊

I worked a part time retail job until late last year. On my CV does not state it was part time.
