Finding A Job After College, As Told By The Cast Of 'New Girl'

The struggle is real.

Finding A Job After College, As Told By The Cast Of 'New Girl'

As college graduation quickly approaches, the stress of finding a job is becoming more and more stressful. There are days where you apply for 100 jobs and days where you lay in bed crying because you haven't heard back from anyone. Whatever job search stage you're in, you've definitely experienced these feelings:

1. I am over qualified for any job I apply for.

This is the honeymoon phase. Your professors have made you believe that you are wanted by every company out there. They instill confidence in you and you feel on top of the world.

2. How do I make my resume look better?

Try every website there is. They will all tell you the same thing. Get a few opinions from people in your field and be confident in it. Don't forget to add all of the important things you did in college. No, winning the beer olympics last summer does not count as relevant experience or accomplishments.

3. I applied for 12 jobs today!

You're on a roll now! It's going to take more than 12 to find "the one" though.

4. No one has called me back about any of the jobs I applied for.

Cue panic. This is the scary part. What do you say? What do you wear? What do you ask? Take a deep breath. You got this.

6. Why haven't they called back yet?

Remember, that was just a practice round.

7. I applied for 53 more jobs today.

Keep on applying! Eventually, they will call you back. Follow up with emails and phone calls to your point of contact.

8. I got 3 interviews!

This is inevitable. Reschedule 2 of them and thank them for being flexible. If they're not flexible, it's not meant to be!

10. I got my dream job!

You did it.

Finding a job is the hardest part of college.You start to second guess everything and your confidence is ripped away from you. Believe in yourself, pray about it, and trust that it will fall into place.
