Desperately Looking For Work

I miss being a student not because I don't like the fact that I now need to work my *** off if I want to live. I miss being a student because I miss being busy. I'm the type of person who loves being busy and I get so depressed when I get stuck in the house with nothing to do for a long time.

I just graduated 2 weeks ago but it feels like years already. I have submitted my resume to dozens of companies but yet not a single reply from any one of them.

What disappoints me is that my other classmates already have interviews for the same companies that I have applied to. It's not that I'm jealous of them or anything, as a matter of fact I am happy for them, it's just that everybody (including them) keeps saying "It'll be easy for you to find a job because you're the smartest! Any company would want to hire someone like you!" But then why am I the only one who doesn't get called for an interview?

Some of you may think I'm overreacting. My mom thinks I'm overreacting. She said others don't even get a job for years. But I don't think I can stay with my mom any longer. I can't stay here in the house any longer. I think I'd go crazy anytime now.


Oh please dear God! An interview is all I'm asking for and I'll take care of the rest!! Oh please Oh please Oh please!!!

If you are looking to be your own boss and get paid to do themed home me. I think you would be perfect for this business.

ah, at least you got called for interviews , many would kill for in person interviews. I wish I could offer some sage soothing advice, aside from the obivioussay is keep applying, go to those career fairs. If lets say after a month or 2 of looking for your ideal work and still nothing, then look into volunteering, minimum wage work, whilst still looking for your ideal/dream computer type job on the side.<br />

Nothing is more ruinous on a resume than "white space", gaps of unemployment. Yes it is tough out there, lots of people are unemployed, Entry level jobs require 2-3 years of expereince and everyone including the dude with 10 years of expereince is applying for that same unpaid internship you are applying for-that being said employers will likely not take any of that as an excuse for long gaps of unemployment. <br />

Get that volunteer, part time work, something to fill the resume.

what did you major in? ANd the the friends that have found work, what did they study?

I'm a BS Computer Science graduate. My friends also majored in Computer Science. I moved to a bigger city just this week and I got called for at 4 companies. But I only had the chance to go at 2 of them.
