what do you do if you are over educated and under experienced?
I just finished school. All i learned there was how to be a maintenance worker, but now it seams like every is looking for workers but they all seem to want 2-10 years experience.when i tried looking for apprenticeships i seen job descriptions that said "Must have completed apprenticeship" or "Must have 2 years experience". What am I supposed to do about that?

Ideally you would have done some kind of internship or apprenticeship while still in school. Did you not have an academic adviser or two that recommended this to you? Did they never talk to you about this or did you just ignore them... More

Apply anyway, and ask your school for help. Also, factor in to your experience your schooling and any related work you've done (even around the house). Thus, under experience, list your schooling and "handyman" or something like that and the related work you've done for family, friends, and neighbors.

Offer to work somewhere free for a week and show them that you are good enough, sell yourself. Apply for the jobs that say they want experience anyway and put that you would work a week for free as a trial for them, a lot of places will respect you for that and see you as a good worker. Good luck
