So many degrees, but no jobs

Picture: Emmy Chirchir

Employers seem to not know what they want...

Once I finished my thesis around this time last year, I began that most dreaded journey: the job hunt. Optimistic, full of energy, I trawled the internet, revived old networks and subscribed to various job advertising websites. The journey looked promising! I’m sad to say that more than 200 application letters later, I have only had 2 interviews and no job offers!

To Berlin and back

Me going through Argentina's graduation ritual

In December 2008, I graduated with a bachelor’s in communication with an emphasis in journalism. I wanted to work in audiovisual production back then, but later on I came to know that my aspirations didn’t matter much. What was important (and still is) was that I made something of my degree, and that somehow that came close to my original wishes. That means re-thinking your original plans when you realize where you are standing.
