    I achieved the highest grade in my masters

    degree course from a top UK business school (top 1 in some league tables). I thought that meant something. I also have had work experience in an international scale, but I still haven't been employed after a few months of looking for a job. I am even lowering my standards and...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    Underqualified and Overqualified

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

    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...

    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...
