    I am very unhappy. I have a Masters from a very

    good university, some work experience too. But no job. I took a risk and moved to the other side of the world for a promise of an internship because in the country where I graduated there was nothing at all. In my mind, this internship had the potential to evolve into either a...

    No Experience, Need Not Apply

    Here is my background. At age 37 I earned a BS Geography-Urban and Regional Planning with a minor in Public Administration. I graduated in Dec of 2007 just when Gov. Perry told the Federal Government he would not accept the stimulus money. As a result, all levels of government in...

    I Feel Lied To.

    I've been told since I started kindergarten that if I did well in school I would be able to get a good job. So, I buckled down and charged forward, receiving only one A- in high school to graduate as salutatorian of my high school senior class. I then went on to a good college...

    Was An Education Really Worth It?

    My Bachelors was easy. I had a good man, a place to live away from my mother, and I worked steadily on campus in the bookstore. I had it by the time I was 21, and entered the Masters program. I couldn't keep my position in the bookstore anymore to make time to work on my thesis...

    Underqualified and Overqualified

    No Rest For The Wicked.

    Long story short, I grew up poor and had nothing. In high school when all the rich kids were punting around pigskins, I was busting tires at the local docal tire shop. When my senior year came up, I was scared out of my mind because I had no way of making it on my own. My parents...

    I have a Masters and half of a PhD (I left the

    program, I'm not still in the process) and I, I'm not unemployed, just underemployed. I work at a job that barely requires a high school diploma. I lie to people about my education and don't let anyone know I have a Masters degree. I keep putting in new job applications, but...

    Frustrated Is A Colossal Understatement!

    I can't even begin to describe my frustration at being unemployed! I hate it. While I am freelancing at the moment (and have been on and off for the past decade), it's not regular income. I completed my master's in 1.5 years and my bachelor's in 2.5 years and it's been 8 months...

    Master's Degree And Perpetually Jobless

    I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in 2007 and soon after became a Substitute Teacher and tutor to work through grad school. Today, I am not even a tutor anymore. After I completed my BA, I thought I would get my Teaching Credential. Once I was immersed in grad school, however, I...

    My twenties have flown by.

    It would have been nice to have gained some meaningful connections in academia, but academia isn't always a racially diverse place. I know that I'm only looking from the outside in; that I can't exactly compare my own skills to people that have the jobs I'd like to have. But I...
