I graduated with a BA and can't find a job. I'm stuck.?
I don't know what to do next. I have a degree in Communications and Psychology. Apparently the competition is more than keen for Advertising and PR, and though I try I don't get those jobs. I was also interested in counseling but you have to be certified and I don't even know if I'd want to do it. I don't know if I should find a short-term serving job now and go back to school or keep looking for entry level career jobs or what. I live with my mother and have enough money saved for gas and food until Halloween. You can't answer this question really. I'm just devastated and dug myself into a hole and don't know how to get out of here so I'm writing to the Internet to people who don't know me or my life situation.
