I’m graduating with my MBA in August, but most of my classmates are already in positions for next fall – I totally missed the fall hiring round for accountants because I was worried about taking care of Darling Husband – what good that did now that he left me.
I’m looking for a position in a CPA firm, but have found an insurance company in midtown manhattan hiring, and I have experience – I’m not sure I want to work in the city though.

I finish school in May but I dont graduate until October. And when I graduate I get married and then move country. I’m moving to a very small country so I have to be trying to find a job in a foreign country that I dont know and which does not know me. I’m worried about it…. but I’m still trying to find something. The only thing I have going for me is that at the moment I’m at the top of my class but it doesnt help when I’m going to a country where they basically hire who they know and along political lines… We’ll see how it goes.

@misskittenn: You sound exactly like me 2 years ago.
I graduated undergrad May 2011. From December to April, I was a mess. I’d cry out of nowhere; I had nightmares; I would wake up with questions about my life; go to class worried sick that I’d be a jobless mess after college; contemplated staying another year in college while postponing “grown up world”….you name it, I worried about it.
I applied to 50 jobs and got two calls back. One was for a job I didn’t really want, one was for one I didn’t even remember applying for.
Long story short: this time in our lives (early 20s) is one where the ground is constantly shaking underneath us. There are so many changes going on it feels like you can’t keep up, can’t catch your breath, don’t know wether you should be enjoying the present or worry about the future….and it’s tough to do both. It all works out though. Honestly. I moved accross state, in with my soon to be in-laws, in a totally different town where I knew no one (other than FH), had no friends, one crappy job in the city that paid kinda well, and my heart and hopes on my sleeve. It all worked out. As long as you have health, everything should work out.
*big hug* because I know the pain and confusion you are going through and you are not alone.

I’m graduating in May with my B.S. in Electrical Engineering and thankfully I’ve got a job already! The best advice I can give you is to try and not limit yourself by location too much. I go to school in PA and I’m moving to Dallas for this job, but it’s my dream job. Also, if you or your family has connections, don’t be afraid to use them! It helps so much to have a name of someone attached to your resume in specific companies. I went on five interviews, had to wait about 3 weeks, and got 3 offers. Good luck and keep your head up! Don’t forget to send thank you emails after interviews!

@Mimoza: Thank-you. I’m already starting to have those ‘panic’ moments, and I’m trying to remind myself that this is going to be a strange time, but it’s just hard when you go from your life being planned so long to having to start over.
@bmb5260: That’s good advice! Unfortunately I’m rather limited by location because I have plans to move in with my SO after I graduate, so I don’t have too many choices. I’m willing to commute, but I’d rather it not be more than an hour.

@misskittenn: ah yeah, planning life after college with someone is so hard. My fiancé and I got very lucky and both found jobs in the same city. Keep your head up, you’ll find something! Good luck! 🙂
