Angry Screw this - May 6th 2015, 06:24 PM

I'm never going to find a job. I hate the town I live in, it has absolutely nothing. My degree is worthless and I don't know anyone or have any connections. Im going to end up dying at my worthless mothers place. Some fucking life I have

Hey Ryan,

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. My advice is to apply to a job, maybe as a retail assistant manager, that allows you to transfer. Most retail establishments will transfer people out-of-state if requested. While your job may not be ideal, it will at least allow you to transfer somewhere with more opportunities. Try looking into some insurance companies, they do the same and don't pay terrible. They typically only hire people with a bachelors. Another thing you can do is go to indeed.com. You can search your degree in your area and see what's hiring in your area for your degree.

In the mean time, pick up some skills. I don't know what your degree is in, but maybe take some MIT classes online for free. Try something like their computer science program. Learning to program is a very marketable skill for any job. It shows that you know how to think, and create. You can develop a portfolio on the side as you go through it.

The last thing I would recommend to anyone, but if you're that down about your position, look into the NAVY or Air Force. You can get in as an officer with a bachelors.

If all else fails, go back to school for something marketable (Engineering, Accounting, Computer Science, Medical). It shouldn't take you as long if you already have your bachelors. Maybe 2 years. Look, I'm going back and I'm 2 years older than you. But whatever you do, don't settle. Better yourself. Good luck.
