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?

Start by applying for government jobs, city, county, state, community colleges and school districts. This would be a good start.

I have a daughter with Asperger's Syndrome who is 23 years old so I totally understand your dilemma with the social end of things. Don't be afraid to take a job that is unskilled until you are able to find the one that is right for you. Your main focus right now is to keep ahead of the bills and you may have to take... More
