This is the most frustrating time in your life when you’re freshly out of college and don’t know where to begin. You had your dreams but life is not ready to fulfil them, not yet. You’re full of hopes for your career which comes down crashing when your job application is not even being considered. And you just hate the fact that you don’t have any godfather or godmother. Only if you knew an easier way to crack the code and get to into a job in your field of interest! Let’s stroll through the list of problems we undergo to find a job.
1.) Your profiles on LinkedIn, Naukri.com, Shine.com and others keep popping up with notifications of jobs really below your aspirations.
And they flaunt to land you in your dream job. Well, surely that desk job for a call centre was not your dream job.
2.) The constant ‘No Reply’ phase is killing you.
You send CV and cover letters to all the companies that say they’re hiring but they don’t actually bother replying. Hence, no acknowledgement and it’s so disturbing.
3.) The firms want experienced people but somebody has to let you in to gain that experience.
Brilliant strategy to sideline freshers. Where would they go?
4.) Your heart sinks a little when you see your friends getting placed one by one.
Your dilemma of landing a job keeps getting deeper and deeper.
5.) You told yourself to buy the next phone with your own salary so you are sending out resume to random companies that are not even of your profile.
You just want to get over with this confusion and want a concrete job in your hand, be it any kind.
6.) You begin to think, “This is it, I am at a standstill.”
Many thoughts cross your mind. The most important of them all is, “Why me?????”
7.) You zone out in the middle of a conversation thinking what the future has in store for you.
You get awfully low in your regular life because you’re still home when you thought you would take trips with your own money.
8.) You don’t want to socialize anymore because how would you answer “Aur kya chal raha hai aajkal?”
Avoiding family meetings or friend get-togethers to avoid that dreaded question.
