Now I'm just annoyed and stressed out. Not feeling like a million bucks anymore. *lol* Wish me luck!

So awhile back I made the decision that I am going to re-enter the workforce. After staying home for the past 4 years, I now have my Bachelor's Degree and am ready to go back to work. So I made that decision and I guess I was a little over confident because I thought for sure I would find a job right away. Sad reality is, I can't find a job! All of the jobs I have found are looking for people with way more experience than me. I have my undergrad and am working towards my MBA but all of the jobs require 5-10 years experience. I did a search tonight and there are 423 jobs within 25 miles of me. (I live in the middle of a couple big cities) Problem is, they are just not jobs that I am qualified to do. Of course most of them were for truck drivers! UGH! Worst part is, I'm not even being picky. I figure if I can just get my foot in the door somewhere I can always work my way up but I can't even find a place to start at the bottom! With 4 kids, I don't want to have to travel so there goes any type of marketing or sales positions. I did find a Supervisor job that pays very well that I am qualified for but I really have no desire to work on a factory floor. Definitely not what I envisioned when I got my degree last summer! Ah, flashback to that day last Summer when I felt like a million bucks. I graduated w/ my hubby and kiddos by my side. Such a great day.
