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.

This may not be ideal, but a job like this will get you experience in a professional setting and will look good on your resume. I would suggest finding a job like this, but continue... More
