 Educated and Unemployed

You've had a successful college career and now hold your Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctorate degree, but you are unemployed because you cannot seem to obtain employment in your profession

Or, you finished high school and you decided not to take the work-yourself-up route, the technical skills route, or the just-winging-it route. No, you decided to go to college so that you can go farther up the career ladder, make more money, and gain the knowledge necessary to do well in your chosen field. And that came with a huge price tag, a personal or student loan under the guise of a guaranteed return on investment that will pay you back in unlimited supply.

 For some people, especially the financially privileged operating in the circle of cronyism and nepotism, it does turn out this way. Those are the people who relish the phrases, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” and “Difficulty breeds character,” because it is true for them, those with a guarantee.

However, for most, it seems that no matter how intelligent you are, no matter how many degrees you earn to prove your intelligence, you just cannot obtain employment in your profession. On top of your student loan debt weighing you down, you have adult responsibilities, regular bills, and now, the pressure from yourself and others to take a job, any job, for any pay just to avoid ensuing financial ruin due to mounting debt and a long period of unemployment which can cause additional problems with finding gainful employment.

You did not earn your college degree(s) to work for minimum wage or in a dead end job next to those who chose not to go to college. Yet, that seems to be your future. You are being career-blocked, and there is a reason for that.

Here, you find the answers to your questions:


"What  do I do next?"
