@indecisivebride89:  Ugh, how stressful. I’m sorry you’ are dealing with al of that. My husband took a couple of months to find a job after he graduated (with an engineering degree). It was hard for both of us. My best advice is to just keep looking, it seems like often a numbers thing, just apply as much as you can. Good luck and I hope you find something great soon!

@indecisivebride89:  ME! I have this problem!

I moved to be with Fiance, but the town where he got a great job has little opportunities in my field. And I have two degrees and am working on a third. It’s a huge spirit killer when you’re used to doing well in pursuits and encounter this job market. I graduated from law school two years ago and still don’t have a job, and I’m working on another degree. I do have a part-time job, but it barely pays minimum wage. While I’m thankful that I’m earning something, I’m not using my skills and education and I’m making next to nothing, so I can’t contribute much. 

Talk it over with your Fiance. Mine has talked to me a lot about my value and worth to him even if I’m not experiencing the professional success I want. It helps me keep in mind what really matters. Still tough to go through this, but you have someone there who will always have your back!
