I am twenty seven years old.
I graduated college last May with a degree in Literature.
It was a huge accomplishment for me, an accomplishment that took many years.
Hear I am, still working in the restaurant buisness.
Still serving drinks, and food, and fired up favorites.
Still in the same job I had since Freshman year of college.
I am scared, nervous, and intimidated to apply for a "career."
I feel like I lack the skills, am to immature, am not qualified enough.
And I am not even sure why I feel this way.
I have been working since I was sixteen.
Every job I had I moved up in.
I am a hard worker.
Why do I feel so down about this?
I have applied for a bunch of jobs...
Yet got nothing back,
not even an interview.
This is what is bringing me down.
What is wrong with me?
Why don't employers want to even sit down with me?
What is wrong with my resume?
This is really hard for me to write.
I feel like I will never get past this point.
I feel stuck, not really sure where to turn.
The problem is...I don't even know what kind of job I would be good at.
I don't what I want.
I love helping people.
I love teaching, and training new people.
I love being creative.
But what kind of a job will encompass those things?
As a kid I always wanted to be a teacher.
And I have a Lit degree, but no teacher certification to speak of.
I don't have the money to go back to school to get that certification.
Can't I find some kind of a job with my degree?
Something... I put in so much time, effort, and money to accomplish this degree.
Looking for a job is hard, and stressful, and is really bringing me down.
