I am getting frustruated ,
my car will be going into repossesion pretty soon , i applied for yet another credit card but i don’t know if they are sending it or not.
On top of that I just received another letter from citibank for college loan , my first payment is in 8 days and i only have 200 more dollars left in my bank for my car insurance.

I put up my resume in careerbuilder, hotjobs ,dice.com every where. But no calls yet.
What’s annoying me even more is the fact that I am getting all these calls from Management people , for management and customer service positions

I graduated last december 2006 with a degree in electrical and computer enginering , but i had some emotional problems , all self treated and i made myself feel better , but i couldn’t work at any technical places . Instead i worked at this Call center upstate ny . and I put that in my resume as one of my “experience”

Could that be the reason why the customer service people are calling me ? what should I do ???
all i want is an entry level electronics technician job , so i can put that as an experience and apply for an “electrical engineer” position ….
or anything of that nature..

    Take what you can get to pay the bills and look for what you want while earning a few dollars to keep you afloat. good luck

    Sounds like you should take whatever jobs pays until you can get the one you really want.

    If you are nearing the point of reposession of your car etc… your credit is going to be shot soon. Pay attention to this part :::: many potential employers will be pulling your credit report in the future (especially for the field you want to go into). If you don’t suck it up and take a job ANY job soon just to pay the bills, you will be sabotaging your future in any professional field.

    Try to locate any friends contacts you made during school for a job. Most jobs are recieved through networks and knowing someone. You also may have to swallow your pride and ask your parents if need be. Try jobing.com. Also, many local governments have lists of positions that need to be filled. Look online at you local governments website. Exhaust EVERY opportunity you have. And, watch the pursuit of happyness to get motivated.

    The job market is very bad right now. I just got a Master’s degree and can’t get an interview. I’ve applied to over 200 positions in about 9 months. The only contact I’ve had in the past 3 months was for a secretary position earning less than $ 20,000 a year in an agency that had nothing to do with my skills or knowledge base.

    Applying for yet another credit card was not very wise. For your sake I hope you don’t get it. Additional debt is not your friend. You need to contact the college loan people and let them know your situation and make some alternate arrangements. Contact them before you start missing payments, not after. It’s too late once you miss the first payment. Contact your college’s career service department. It looks really bad when graduates can’t get a job, so they have a vested interest in assisting with the job hunting process.

    Yes, you are getting calls about the management/customer service positions because of your work at the call center. They are reading your resume and responding. It’s just not the response you want.

    What you should do: find a temporary job to pay the bills ASAP. Then go back to job hunting for your field of experience. Consider getting a foot in the door somewhere by working at a technical help desk. Your degree and call center experience combined could be the key to getting that first job in a firm. Also try looking in classified ads. The technical/computer job sections usually have quite a few jobs available (at least here in Florida). You’ll need to apply directly to companies for those positions, however, as they probably aren’t recruiting via the online sites. Specifically, one place to look would be at universities (public and private). They don’t seem to be able to get enough IT personnel. Most, if not all universities, colleges, technical schools, and community colleges have job listings online.

    It’s not going to be easy, but hang in there. You aren’t alone in this crazy job market. Best of luck.

    Dude, listen to this. You CANNOT wait for the job you WANT; you have to take a JOB to support yourself! ANY job. Then you have income and can take your time looking for the job you really want. Since you have access to a PC try these work at home links, they are not get rich quick schemes and you don’t make 10,000 dollars a day, it is real and you can support yourself with them:
