What Happens Next?

Searching for jobs for after college is difficult. Right now, I am simultaneously looking for part time jobs to have during my last semester in college coming up, as well as full time jobs to have after I graduate in May. Part time jobs are pretty simple, almost everybody can apply for any job and there are usually a significant amount of jobs available to apply for. Full time jobs (so far for me) are not simple. It seems like every time that I find a job that I might be qualified for there’s always something that keeps me from filling out the application. Something that keeps popping up for me is the amount of experience that is required, which is generally much more than I have.

I knew that when I would be graduating from college, that the job that I got right out of school would unfortunately not be related to my major. This is something that I’ve always accepted, and it’s part of the reason why I took my business minor. But even with that minor it’s super unclear what jobs I could get.

Lately, I’ve been getting all of the “what are you going to do when you get out of college?” questions. It’s hard to answer those questions. Of course most people who ask that expect you to already have things figured out. I have five months until I graduate, so I suppose it would make sense that I would have things decided, lined up for myself and so on. However, I’m finding that I’m not the only person who still has no idea what they will be doing after graduation… in fact most of the people I know who will be graduating from my major aren’t entirely sure.

The truth is, I don’t think I really need some fancy job that pays a ton of money. I would be content living in an apartment for a while longer, it’s not like I know where I’d like to be the rest of my life. I’m someone who thinks getting paid $10 an hour is special. Having a job that supports me, working full time, do something I can enjoy, that’s all that really matters.

I’ll keep looking, I’ll keep applying, and hopefully I’ll eventually find something that works for me.

 

I just want to work at Disneyland, is that too much to ask?
