Saying “no” to a job offer is hard, but life goes on.
The job market sucks. The job market for graduating students is much worse. A million students with the same dream job -- it is a lottery. However, we need to evaluate what we are worth.
Students pay thousands of dollars for an education. The process goes: education, degree, and job -- right? That’s what is supposed to happen. I hate to break it to you, but moving out of your college apartment does not guarantee you a job. Most college students find themselves back at home living with their parents working local jobs until they find what they are looking for.
The first job is most likely not your dream job. That’s okay. However, is that job going to help you get where you want to be? Think about it.
The job requirements are ridiculous. They expect incoming workers to have 2-3 years of experience. I’m sorry, I just got off my college’s meal plan -- where do you expect for me to have this experience? Also, recently graduating students are submitting applications left and right to land the same job --- or hell, just an interview.
