…as in I don’t have one and am stressing about it! In May I will complete graduate school with my masters and will be needing a job. Technically, I can’t start providing services until sometime in June or July (whenever my provisional license makes it through), but I am feeling the pressure to have the job hunt completed well before that time. We want to buy a house and be moving in after the wedding, but we can’t do that until we know where I will be working!
I sent out applications yesterday and have my fingers (and toes) crossed that someone will hire me. There are several openings, so I think I’m almost more afraid of having to take a job that I don’t really want more than I am afraid about not getting one! Whew! It feels better just getting that out; fiance gets nervous and anxious any time this comes up, which just makes me more nervous!
Have you ever taken a job you didn’t really want? Was it as bad as you thought it would be?

I’m currently applying for 2 jobs that I REALLY don’t want to take. But, I’m just working part-time right now, and these jobs are full time. Since I’m done with school (for now anyway) I kind of need to move on if I want to buy a house so the hubby isn’t the only one bringing any real money in. I LOVE the work that I do now, but unfortunately it’s one of those things that you honestly can’t survive off of *SIGH*…So I know what you mean about taking a job you don’t really want. Not sure how it will turn out compared to what I think it will be…but I guess we’ll see. All I know is, I worked in an office for 8 years and after spending the last year and a half working with kids and actually getting to see the outside world during the day, I’m not looking forward to going back to a cubicle. I feel like it’s a waste of my talents and a waste of my time getting my bachelor’s in college.

I will be in your exact position next year. I will also be graduating with my masters and will be hoping to find a job before the wedding! And if that goes well, then find a home! It must be very frustrating for you. Just know that even if you don’t have your ideal job now, it doesn’t mean you can’t have it in the future. If money is a necessity, which i’m sure it is to 99% of us, than take what you can get! BUT if you find your completely unhappy with a job you’ve been offered, maybe you can take another look at monster... Hope it turns out well, let us know how it turns out!

My fiance and I both have degrees in PR. I’ve held a job for the past two years (since I graduated) but he couldn’t find a job. Right now he works at a deli, for a little over minimum wage.
He’s going back to school to get a different degree.

My stress is because right now we’re opening 3 different clinical sites and it will be a huge adjustment for our staff.
