Grrrrrrrrrrr. That's all I can say right now. I am completely and totally fed up with trying to find a job. I am beyond frustrated. I am sickened by the hard work that it took to get that stupid piece of paper called a College Degree that has gotten me nowhere. I remember everyone telling me, "You have to have a degree now to compete in the job market." So what did I do?! I worked hard. Extremely hard. I got my Bachelor's Degree in Business. Took me almost 6 years and I don't even want to talk about how much time and money it cost. But darn it I did it. And look where it's getting me?! I can't even get a job somewhere where a degree isn't required! Non-degree people who barely have high school diplomas are getting picked for jobs over me! So now I have to ask.....when I apply for jobs that don't require a degree, does that piece of paper now make me over qualified?! *lol* I thought I was a great candidate for a supervisor position I interviewed for but guess what?! I didn't even get a call back! Boo! I thought for sure that all of those years I studied management would get me SOMEWHERE! Guess not. So I applied for a job to work as a preschool teacher. I love little one's (Obviously, lol) and I used to work in a preschool and as a kindergarten teacher so maybe this one might work out. Of course my degree is not in teaching so if they are dead set that you need a teaching degree, I'm out of luck.....but I would be a great fit for the job. I have been a volunteer-a-holic throughout my kids school years so far and I am pretty great with preschool aged kiddos. I have music cd's and books and activity books coming out my ears.
Is anybody else dealing with this too?! I am starting to feel like I am never going to find a job. :(
