I was hired by the agency I interned at during my undergrad.

Best Answer

Yea.. the company I worked with went bankrupt 2 weeks before the end of my internship. They rehired me through a different sister company, but said that they won't hire me full time unless I stayed. I had to choose between finishing my degree or keep the job.

In this economy, finding any job is difficult enough. Finding an entry level job that doesn't require you to walk on water is even tougher. You've already indicated you had a paid internship. I would also look into doing volunteer activities and use those activities to not only gain more experience, but also as a networking opportunity.

unfortunately as the US economy goes, so goes the world's. In reality that proves my point, Obama wants a social structure similar to Canada's, the UK and much of Europe. It kills the economy. Welcome to the real world.

You know the United States doesn't drive the world economy nearly as much as it used to right? American Exceptionalism is coming to an end, and it's all the rich ******** who offshored manufacturing jobs' fault. So Vote democrat or you're contributing to the problem.

Best Answer

BS. Why does everyone assume that all corporate CEOs are Republican? The Democrats have done just as much to make it more profitable to move jobs overseas. That is as much driven by policy as it is by corporate decisions. If they could compete with the products made here they would. Your view is much too simplistic. There is more involved than you seem to realize.

Mine was years ago. I had lined up some jobs whilst in my final year. I had done some temp assignments with them. So they took me on as soon as I was available. I was able to progress via professional exams through the same company too.

These days,,,,, well things are pretty tough for all young people.

I hope you try you local agencies who may offer temporary jobs or part time that may see you progress.
