Today was a bit of a blur. It went by quickly and slowly at the same time. I didn't have the energy to pull out my camera, although my meals were painfully boring and pictures probably would have put you all to sleep. Nothing worth photographing.
To tell you the truth, I'm having job difficulties. I graduated from university with a BA Hons of Psychology in April with good grades, great personal connections with my professors, and some pretty impressive experiences. Moving out into the real world, my hopes and dreams came to a halt. I must have handed out 50 or more resumes to various businesses. Guess how many calls I recieved for an interview?
One. That's right. One phone call from a retail store.
My dreams of a smooth transition between perfect student and perfect career woman were crushed. I've been working at this retail position for three months now and I've had more than I can handle. I've been too embarassed to tell you where I worked until now because...well, I'm a married university graduate working an entry level, barely full-time retail job with a bunch of high school students.
Today has been a rough transition from wedding and honeymoon to going back to work. I honestly feel so defeated at the moment that I almost want to give up on any chance of having a meaningful and rewarding career. I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow, at least enough to photograph my day.
Have you run into a similar situation? Are you experiencing the same defeat as I am now? How do you get out of a career slump when a BA in Psychology equals "unqualified"?
