What to say when hiring managers ask what you've been doing since you graduated?

All I've been doing is applying for jobs! But something tells me that's a bad answer

But if it is the truth, that is what I would tell them. I would not feel ashamed or that I needed to tell them anything else.

If I would be the hiring manager, I like your answer since you told the truth and did not make any stories. Good luck, hope you'll get the job

The truth is always the best answer! I am sure that the hiring manager is aware of how difficult it is for new grads to find jobs right now.

Go volunteer it always looks good while you look for a job.

Trust me the managers will expect that. This surplus of new grads is no secret. The trick is, how do you make yourself stand out? Good luck!
