jr.


right?LOL


hahah i knowww.. but what the hell am i supposed to do in the mean time?!
lol my friend told me to just do waitressing or something, just so at
least i'm doing something.. i mean im also working on my thesis so
hopefully that'll keep me busy


Where are you based?
Location plays a lot into this. No lie, in NYC, you can get by doing
something alternate that can still be lucrative until an ideal position
opens up. I know a lot of ppl who got into marketing/sales because they
were doing promotional work. It's no shame, the hours are flexible and
you can make good money. Before I started at the pharma company, I spent
a yr doing promos and trade show work. I didn't work a 9-5 and I sh!t
you not, I made $45K that yr - mostly off the books. Plus I networked
and met a lot of ppl - many of whom I deal with now for my own company.

Doing
the pharma job was actually a step down in pay but at the time I really
wanted something more stable as promo work can be a bit of a hustle
during the off season if that's not your thing.


I'm in boston... So I'm sure there might be opportunities for promo work.. How did you get into an agency? Or is it more of like you go on Craigslist?? Not trying to get shanked lol

You really have to decide what is important to you, money or passion in what you do. Very few people are able to have both.

Networking is the key to really succeed in any field you choose as well as understanding your market worth. I work in Network Security but I originally went to school for Journalism. I had to adapt to the changing and emerging needs of today's society. And it worked out to my benefit. I know people who went to law school and practiced and were successful only to leave it all and do home renovations and become even more successful.

The key is to not be discourage and not see your degree as your only way out and certainly not see it as a mistake or a waste of time. All knowledge adds value to who you are. You just have to sell it. And everything is marketable. Art degrees, Physical Therapy, History Degrees, Marine Biology....they all matter.

I wish everyone good luck because I know how hard it can be.

before my grad stipend checks ran out and right after they did I was a teaching assistant.

I taught/ran two stat labs and one methods class

I never wanted to teach but did what I had to do for the experience (stat review, show employers I understand stats) and for the $

i know a couple of MPH's. they are not highly placed at the moment. but it think both of them have great careers ahead of them. 
if you want to go the corporate route, aim for a science and technology company (biotech, pharma, etc..) aim low to get your foot in the door (admin type role or lab tech), then apply for better jobs after a couple of years and let the ladder climbing commence.

I want to add that if your resume is full of bullet points, throw it out

Act is if you are writing a brief, 5 sentence (a little more or less) story about your past and current work experience, per position. Make it sound as interesting as possible instead of a boring listing of your tasks at work.

Also try to make your cover letters fit not only the position but the company as well

If you are applying for the same type of work during your search it makes sense that major edits are not required for every letter but your intro and closing paragraphs should always be unique

for both resume and cover letter, use keywords that are in the job description

Whoa really?? My resume is all bullet points.. I even took it to my career services and she didn't say anything about it.. my school is so useless. She did advice me on using keywords that are in the job description though

I would take that advice with a grain of salt...depending on what career field your in.


i agree. it depends on the profession. i do like a mix of a brief description of what you did at that job, then add a few bullets to highlight successes.

most people viewing your resume will scan, and need to see those highlighted buzz words quickly. personally, my resume is a combination. i have viewed several resumes done many ways. but you should frame it around what is popular for your profession.
