Hey guys, it’s Lois! This is a different kind of post today as at the minute I am really stuck for time to write a full Top 5 Wednesday post! Instead I am gonna write a different kind of post.
As some of you may know I finished my first year of university back in April. I don’t plan on going back, university isn’t for me and it was making me feel extremely miserable. Obviously I had to think of something else to do instead of university. For the last 5 months I have been looking for a job. I have got nowhere so far. I plan on working in a company that works within the media industry. But all the interviews I’ve gone too all come back with the same reason for not taking me on. “You don’t have enough experience”.
I have asked all the companies after they have told me this how do I gin experience. Every single company I’ve spoke to has said “get a job in the Media industry”. How in the world am I meant to get a job when everyone me to have experience. I feel like I’m fighting against myself. I have emailed so many companies asking for work experience (politely of course). But again either no one can give it to me or they have none available.
So, now I’m stuck. I really don’t know what to do. Companies would take me on if I had more experience but I can’t get the experience I seem to need. Hopefully I will be in a job before the end of September. I will be glad to stop applying for at least 10 jobs a day! Maybe one day I will have the dream job of being a graphic designer for a publishing house. But I still have a long long way to go!
Do any of you have any advise when it comes to getting a job and gaining experience. Anything is highly appreciated. I know this is a different post than what you normally see on this blog. But I hope you don’t mind.
