Unmotivated students. Unsure graduates. Us.
I'm Jenn. I'm 23 and a 2003 graduate of Syracuse University with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Music Industry. I am currently working a crappy |
office job in the mortgage recording department of a title and abstract company. I live with my parents, am too poor to afford even basic luxuries like health insurance, I am more educated than almost everyone else here including the managers but I don't leave because I don't know what else I want to do with my life. Therefore I slack off all day long until I find something else. I joined so I could find other 20 somethings in similar positions as myself to commiserate with.
oh lord. you poor thing.
i recommend grad school, part time. not as much of a commitment, but still adds some purpose to daily life.
I was looking into it but as far as I could tell I couldn't afford it.
Have you tried looking for another position that can actually use your education? My SO has a psychology degree and works a crummy job, but he has gotten started recently with the company that does the hiring for HP locally and they have come up with a number of good leads for him just in a month. (He's also studying for A+ certification, as that opens a number of doors on its own.)
Good luck, and welcome to our little family!
Ahh, I feel ya..I'm 23 also, graduated from school at the end of 2003. It took me forever to find a job and once I finally did, it was just an industrial, factory-type job. But I don't exactly wanna quit or anything, cuz I'm not sure if I'll find anything else. I'm also interested in music, very interested in it , and I wanna pursue that area somehow. I'm thinking about going back to school to get another bachelor's (crazy, huh?), cuz where I graduated from, they didn't offer a music-related degree, so we'll see how that goes. I don't know if I'll be able to afford it, either, but I think I'll try to take out a loan. Do you think that'll work, even though I've already got loans out the wazoo from my other college? It sucks being in this position, doesn't it?
boy, you sound familiar.. do i know you?
sounds familiar.... i was doing some volunteering (for cv of course) in marketing department of one of private galleries here in london... and i was treated like... well, like I didn't exist, while I knew that I have more degrees that all their senior managers all together - and definately more brain... Guess there was an added bonus of being a foreigner.
