I'm currently working 4 part-time jobs. I have been trying to find a full-time job that pays well... and I've been hitting so many dead ends. At the end of this semester I will have two masters degrees (I already have an MBA, and now will have an MS). I have years of experience and job stability. My GPA is high, and I am a member of three honor societies. I've had my resume reviewed, and apparently it looks like a "home run". No one knows why I'm not even getting interviews (except the people who are not interviewing me). The jobs I'm applying for are on my college's job database, so they are people looking for new graduates. I always exceed their requirements, but not so much that it's too much. I keep my social media life in check (no crazy pics if you google me), I network and I have great references. Ugh... I've gotten so bored I've applied for low level retail jobs just to get some responses (which is what I've been doing my whole life), and they all want me. I can work for $8 an hour with my two masters degrees... awesome.
The things that adds insult to injury is I know a man who graduated with an AA (nothing wrong with AA's I have one too, but had I known my BA, MBA and MS wouldn't get me anywhere I would've saved over a hundred thousand dollars
), that had a GPA of below 2.0, a history of drug use, and admits he doesn't understand his job... yet he makes $70,000 a year AND has no trouble finding jobs and promotions.
Sorry for the rant... but I'm just getting so frustrated with it all I needed to vent. My aunt has been having trouble finding a job after being laid off two years ago. She was the west coast director of marketing for a multinational corporation. She keeps saying no one wants to hire people with masters anymore, they want AA's and BA's (which is the exact opposite of a few years before that). I just thought she was being overly dramatic, but I'm starting to think it's true.
Is anyone else experiencing job searching problems?
