Have you tried networking, e.g. going to job fairs, etc.? My classmate got hired via a job fair.
Calling up old classmates to see if they can get you an interview? Another classmate was calling us
to see if we wanted to work. Hell, I offered a job position to one of my old classmates because I thought it was right up her alley.
Why didn't you take those previous job offers and are you able to "get them back?" A three hour car drive is nothing compared to being unemployed. And at that point, you might as well rent an apartment. There is a girl who works with me who does a 2.5-hour drive when she's lucky
, as she commutes from a major metropolitan city.
Quote from Puckerup78
I had the perception that with this targeted degree there should be no problem....I was wrong.
That's the problem: You had a perception
, a view occluded by delusions and altered by expectations. Already in 2009, prior to entering nursing school, a majority of my class including myself knew that the job market was really bad. Did you do research prior to obtaining your degree? And I mean, real
research, not "Well, a friend said
, etc., etc."
