I just graduated last weekend and now I'm just worrying about finding a career. Until then I'm just scanning groceries for 9 dollars an hour.

That's pretty much my life right now too. My dad wants me to run some frozen yogurt franchise he owns for him... Its depressing. I feel I can do so much better than that... =/

I literally just got an email for an interview with Apple. So things are going to pick up I assume. Keep your head up. As long as you have the desire to do something with your life, then you certainly will.

Well I just found out the job I thought I still had until the end of January is no longer able to offer me the hours they thought they would be able to offer me. So that's great. Now I really got to get into crunch time on finding a job.

what's your degree in?

English. haha but I got a minor in Communications and Education...

Ideally I think the plan right now is either wait to see if I got into the Jet Program or start Grad school for ESL education in the summer.

it's so wild hearing about people going back to high-school type jobs, being an accounting major, everything is basically set, as long as you have a 3.5^, you goto school, intern, get an offer before graduation, and start working. i'd be terrified if I didnt have a job out of college. i commend you sir.

My sister got a job offer as a sophomore. It's insane.

Just checked out your profile; you had a show on KUST Radio? So did I! University of St. Thomasssss; 2010 graduate. I had a show there back in Spring and Fall semesters of 2007, first semester focusing on electronic music, and the fall semester focusing on metal.

Back to thread topic, I would recommend using the St. Thomas job board and just applying at wherever sounds remotely interesting/capable of doing. Hiring right now in Minneapolis is pretty healthy, and the job board on UST's site usually has a ton of openings, so totally check out that board if you can. I'm working full time right now in downtown Minneapolis, doing IT work for a supply chain services company. Company is awesome and the pay is decent, but it has no relation on what I eventually want to do. Basically I'm using this job right now to work on/think about what I eventually want to do. I actually applied to the JET Program myself, and I thought I had a pretty good application, but didn't even get past the first round of selection, haha. It sounds like an awesome program to be a part of though, especially as it pays pretty decently; hopefully you get it! I worked with ESL students my senior year at St. Thomas, mainly because I was an International Student Ambassador(or something), and went on different field trips with the ESL students across the street, in that building next to McNeely.

Yeah; I had a show from 2008-2010 actually; and then school just got too busy for me to be up from Midnight -2am. I absolutely loved it though. The people were my favorite....

I never thought to look at the Job boards... I'll go dig around and try and find that. That actually seems like a really good start.

I have to wait one more month to see if I get past the first round; I plan on reapplying if I don't get it. I've heard of people who have applied three times before they actually got a position. So hopefully something pans out.

Thanks for the advice! It actually was really helpful.
