How do I get a real job with a four year gap with no professional experience?
I graduated from college four years ago, and have been unable to get a real job since then. I've been working unskilled jobs to get by, via a temp agency. Now, I'm at the point where I'm broke, and have to get a permenant job NOW. Most likely, it'll be an unskilled job in a supermarket or something. I graduated in the top ten percent of my class, and have outstanding skills; however, I have Ausberger's Syndrome, and the "social" aspect of the job search has killed me. Four years have now gone by, and I have no professional experience. Do I still have a chance with employers?
