I'm sooo gratefull/happy/relieved to have FINALLY landed a full time line. I graduated December 2010 and just got the call last week. It has been a whole year.
Finding jobs has been brutal - I have some friends who don't even have a casual job - they took retail jobs as they continue to look. I was hired for a casual position in Feburary and have been applying to EVERY single position that was posted and it took ten months to get one. It certainly is not my first choice speciality wise - but I'm taking anything I can get. Can't be choosers in this market.
How long did it take you? I'm talking about permanent full time line (I did temporary full time for about 3 months).
