As a recent graduate of Radford University holding a bachelor’s in nutrition in a country where obesity is such a problem, I never thought finding a job would be such a struggle.
After applying and being rejected for “not having enough experience,” I ask myself, just like many other recent grads: How are we to get experience when no employers will give us the chance? Seeing as how I’ve held jobs since the age of 16 and attended four years of college, I’d say I have about as much experience as a person my age can have.
After the defeating search for jobs related to my studies, I’m forced to look for any job I can get that will pay enough to live in Roanoke on my own.
Instead of being excited about graduating, many of us are feeling discouraged.
How are new graduates to get on their own two feet in the world when no one will give them the opportunity to get their foot in the door?
